Hyena Hangout a refuge from the rush of city life. An African bushveld home from home where you can be one with nature and restore your zest for life. Blissfully quiet & peaceful, your only visitors the animals that call Marloth Park their home.
At Hyena Hangout we are constantly delighted by visits from zebra, giraffe, bushbuck and kudu. Not forgetting the tortoise, monitor lizard or the energetic bush babies. You can cool off with a cocktail in the splash pool, or unwind with a book on the secure deck. There is nothing to beat the tranquillity of the African bush, a place to refresh your soul and restore your love of life.
Marloth Park is a wildlife conservancy, protecting all the non-threatening wild game, which roam freely amongst the dwellings. The impala, blouwildebees, nyala and warthog wander freely while the Big 5 are restricted to Kruger which is on the other side of the Crocodile River. We are within a short walk of the Crocodile river, where you can spend the early evening with sundowners enjoying the prospect of seeing the elephants bathing in the river or a lion kill. Buffalo, rhino, waterbuck, crocodile and hippo are also a common sight, together will a myriad of water birds and the amazing fish eagle. Perfectly situated 20 km from Kruger National park and a short drive to the Swaziland and Mozambique borders.
Hyena Hangout has a main bedroom with a double bed, air conditioning, en-suite bathroom with a tub and a shower. There is also access to this bathroom from the passage. The 2nd bedroom has a double bed and and is also en-suite with a shower. The bathroom and kitchen have a hot water gas geyser which is ignited when you turn on the hot water tap. Upstairs there is a double bed and 2 single beds in the large open loft area. The beds have linen and pillows with blankets and duvets supplied in winter. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. Downstairs is a comfortable lounge, leading out onto the patio, braai area and a large splash pool for those hot summer afternoons. Evenings are spent around the campfire, watching the sparks fly into the dusk, with a million stars to decorate the night sky.
