Ochre House is an intimate, solar-powered holiday house designed for couples who love privacy, space and style.

It's located in Marloth Park, a unique wildlife conservancy bordering Kruger National Park.

Ochre House is set in natural bushland. The outside living area faces south and overlooks a lovely wooded glade crossed by a game trail used by antelopes, zebras & giraffes.

Design inspiration is Bauhaus simplicity and minimalism, with a seamless transition between architecture and nature.

The space
Ochre House is 120 square metres, with high 3-metre ceilings creating volume, space and abundant natural light.

Construction is thick concrete, the roof is steel and the ceiling space is heavily insulated to provide cool comfort in the hot African summers while retaining overnight warmth in our brief and mild winters. It's also fully air-conditioned to keep you comfortable even in the occasional extremes.

The main living space features a fully-equipped kitchen, a reclaimed timber dining table and a comfortable, intimate lounge area.

There’s a huge 4.5-metre glass wall leading to the patio area, and a spectacular 3.5-metre window seat/daybed with gorgeous bushland outlook … and it’s roomy enough for a small child to sleep (that’s if you’re actually a couple-plus!).

Ochre House has one bedroom with king-size double bed, and a light-filled ensuite bathroom incorporating a large walk-in shower with its own bush views.

The covered, all-weather patio is elevated, with spectacular bushland panorama and no other structures visible: It’s just you, the African bush, and the passing animals & birdlife. It has a 4.5-metre plunge pool, a custom-made stainless steel hibachi grill, and a spacious outdoor seating area. The patio catches the morning sun for sunrise coffee or breakfast, but by midday it’s all bathed in cool, welcome shade.

Where you’ll be

Marloth Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Marloth Park is a unique wildife conservancy bordering Kruger National Park at the Crocodile River. Many iconic African animals roam free in the bush around Ochre House, including zebras, giraffes, wildebeest and many species of antelopes. And for birders, the native African birdlife is astonishing in numbers and diversity.
