An amazing breakaway from the city rush!

Nature lovers since childhood, we fell in love with Marloth on our first visit and soon after bought land and built our very own dream getaway. Over the years we have built several similar bush getaways around Marloth. It is our place of peace, tranquillity and is as close to nature as you can ever imagine to be.

      Self-catering accommodation is great value especially for longer stays, and for families and larger groups. This self-catering holiday house offers real living space, instead of just a place to sleep. Enjoy the best of both worlds, a fantastic holiday in a homely setting.

      What People are saying about us

      I recently spent 5 nights at Khaya Luvivane. I loved it! The house is very comfortable. I had everything needed in a beautiful setting. I spent a lot of time in the swimming pool from where I watched as duiker, kudu and zebra grazed nearby. I saw monkeys every day and bush babies at night. The beds are very comfortable and I really appreciated the good linen. I loved the shower head and size of the shower! The kitchen is well equipped – it was very handy to have an additional freezer on hand.  Marloth Park is amazing. I will definitely be back. I highly recommend Khaya Luvivane. Amazing!

      Fantastic. Close to Kruger park. Beautiful surroundings. This is a place where your soul can heal and mind and body rejuvenate.

      Elsa Pretorius

      Khaya Luvivane was a pleasant surprise.  We were there for 4 nights from 24 to 28 dec.  The splash pool kept us cool during the hot days and the bedroom aircons helped us sleep a little better at night.  The main bedroom had a good sizeable shower with good water pressure.  The house was well presented and the fully equipped kitchen was a rare bonus – the only place we’ve visited that had everything you need.  Chest freezer,  fridge freezer combo and bar fridge gave us ample space for all our food and drinks.  A lovely house,  well equipped and perfect for a break from the hustle and bustle.  Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.

      Fantastiese wegbreek van al die lawaai en gejaagdheid van die stad. Die huis is perfek ingerig met alles wat jy nodig het. ‘n Volledige ruim kombuis vir heerlike kos voorbereiding, asook ‘n braai geriewe buite. Die kamers is toegerus met lugverkoeling vir daai hittige bosveld dae. Kamers is ook ruim met hangkaste. Twee badkamers maak dit privaat vir paarjies of gesinne wat saam wil breek. Baie netjies en skoon geriewe. Ons het ure in die swembad deur gebring wat gerieflik naby is, terwyl jy omring is met die bosveld en diere wat ons so af en toe besoek het. Dis die perfekte plek om te ontspan en ons het dit vreeslik geniet!

      Ons het al n paar keer gaan kuier by Khaya Luvivane, die akomedasie is wonderlik en die atmosveer is ook baie rustig.Jy kan teen die revier af ry met jou Kar en redelik baie wild sien, Olifante, Buffels, waterbokke, Seekoeie en baie Voel soorte en as jy gelukig is Leeus.
      Jy kan self’s by Krokkedil brug hek Ingaan na die Kruger park, die hek is nie baie ver weg van Marloth af nie . Daar is ook winkeltjies naby gelee as jy iets vergeet het en n vulstasie vir diesel en petrol. Ek sal met n rustige hart kan se dat Khaya Luvivane die moeite werd is om te huur vir n naweek, week.
      Malenane en Komatiepoort dorpe is ook nie te ver nie as jy iets wil kry wat nie by die winkelkies te koop is nie. Daar is ook n Hek na Kruger Park toe by Malenale, mens kan selfs invlieg vanaf Johannesburg en Kaapstad, kar huur om by Kaya Luvivane te gaan kuier. Ek weet dat Airlink vlugte het om daaglikse basis en meer as een vlug.
