Nextdoor Kruger is our newest self-catering family lodge in Marloth Park wildlife conservancy. 

It’s next door to our popular Birdsong Africa Lodge, and it’s right on the doorstep of Kruger.  

So the name was irresistible.





IMG_6260Designed for the Environment.

Nextdoor is designed to be comfortable, private, stylish and discreet.  Like Birdsong, our goal was to achieve a balance of function, harmony and simplicity; Zen Africa style.  The design emphasises space, flow and natural light.

Nextdoor has the highest level of ceiling insulation materials installed, keeping the interior comfortably cool even on the hottest summer days.

It’s a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom family lodge intended for 4 persons in total.  The lodge is surrounded by natural bush, and the living areas, both indoor and outdoor, face south into private parkland; there are no other buildings visible.

From the shaded outdoor BBQ patio and pool you enjoy a totally private vista through 180 degrees, shared only with the many animals that come to call every day.  Zebras, kudus, impala, warthogs, wildebeest and even giraffes are regular visitors to Nextdoor Kruger.
