Life is complicated. Holidays shouldn't be.

At African Bush Backpackers, we believe in savoring the essence of what makes Africa so precious – stunning wildlife, incredible birdlife, dazzling night skies, and loads of sunshine. It’s a recipe for bliss!

African Bush Backpackers is located in Marloth Park, a bushveld paradise on the banks of the Crocodile River, the Southern boundary of the iconic Kruger National Park. Here, in the heart of one of Africa’s most beloved geographical areas, you’ll find peace and unparalleled natural beauty.

Marloth Park offers the discerning nature-lover a unique opportunity to experience wild animals casually doing what they normally do, in the garden. It is a place where you can explore beautiful dusty paths on foot, on your bicycle, or in your car. This is the life – pure and simple.

With Kruger Park easily accessible from either the Crocodile Bridge or Malelane Gates, guests can explore Kruger Park by day too. For more details on this, and other attractions and activities, visit our Things to Do Page.

Life really is about the little things, and perhaps backpackers understand that better than most travelers. Travel light and make loads of memories. At African Bush Backpackers, we go the extra mile to ensure that our guests experience everything we love most about Africa. So, pack your backpack and lace up your boots, because a wonderful adventure awaits you…
