Birdsong is a private self-catering family lodge in a wildlife conservancy adjoining South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park.

It’s a purpose-built, boutique lodge designed to offer you an African bush experience that’s something different.



Incredible Location. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABirdsong is just 15 minutes from the Crocodile Bridge entry gate to Kruger’s southern region. That’s the region of Kruger with the most prolific and varied African wildlife populations.

The Marloth Park conservancy, within which the lodge is located, is a unique 1500 hectare natural bush environment with its own abundant wild game including giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, kudu and impala roaming free, literally on your doorstep. And, as our name suggests, many species of spectacular African birds in the native trees surrounding your lodge, including a magnificent mature Marula tree – a great favourite of the birds – right outside your front door.


Stylish Simplicity.

IMG_5156Birdsong Lodge is designed to be simple and comfortable; compact yet spacious at the same time.

Minimalist design emphasises space, harmony and natural light.  It’s beautiful, practical and functional.

The interior living area flows to an indoor/outdoor dining and lounging area that transitions seamlessly into your own totally private bushland.

Birdsong is designed, sited and constructed to be a sympathetic part of its bushland setting, rather than something imposed on it.

Designed for the Environment.

The lodge is concrete, using local sand and stone, and the finishes are natural and harmonious in tone and texture.

The positioning and orientation of the building provides shade when and where you want it, and sun when that’s the more pleasant option. The hot water is a state-of-the-art, efficient gas system, and waste water is re-used for subterranean watering.

Privacy and Comfort.

Birdsong is designed for maximum privacy. The main living area opens out to the rear, facing south. No other structures are visible; it’s your own exclusive native bush reserve for as far as you can see, shared only with the animals. Sit by the pool with a coffee in the morning – or a sundowner in the afternoon – and watch zebras, antelopes and giraffes from just metres away.
