Needles Safari Lodge

Needles Safari Lodge is a warm and welcoming owner-run lodge in the heart of Marloth Park, a private residential nature reserve bordering the Kruger National Park between the Malelane and Crocodile Bridge entrances to the park. The four-star lodge is a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life, that offers once in a lifetime activities and experiences. The picturesquely nestled lodge offers panoramic views of the African bush from which you are able to get up close and personal with animals such as the warthog, kudu, zebra and giraffe that are passing by.

At Needles Safari Lodge our local cuisine is prepared with the warm-heartedness of home-cooked meals, and with the combination of traditional African luxury hospitality, it is guaranteed to leave a sweet taste in your mouth.

“Thank you so much for a dream vacation we cannot express to you how you have touched our lives.”
Paul & Maria Emily Geoff Barrington. LA, USA.
