Kruger Park Hostel

We are uniquely situated in a conservation area set just South of the world-famous Kruger National Park. This little gem in Marloth Park, will let you come up right close and personal with the animals that call this place home. As Kudu, Warthog, Impala, Zebra, and the curious mongoose, amongst others, come knocking on your doorstep.

We are two permanently at the lodge, which can accommodate 14 guests. Rene (male 21 years) and Devon (male 24 years), and then Ennie (Female and older than the two of us) who comes in a few times a week to clean the hostel. We like to have fun, go on game drives and mingle with the guests.

I had such wonderful days at Kruger Park! It was my second experience with worldpackers and definitely the best choice I could have made. The work is simple and you can make the most of the place while you're there, as well as always being surrounded by nature and cute animals that come to visit. Mayra, Rene, and Devon are amazing, fun people and are always available to help with whatever you need. I want to thank once again for the opportunity, and I 100% recommend this experience!!!! ☺️☺️

Helo, it was a pleasure having you as a volunteer. Thanks for all the help and memories you shared. We wish you all the best in this new chapter and hope to see you again soon! Beijoss!!



This was my second trip with Worldpackers and it was my favorite! The word to sum it up is unreal, you live among zebras and giraffes it's absolutely incredible. I was lucky to be selected to paint for the hostel. I gave the best of myself and hope they'll be happy with my work. I obviously recommend this place, mayra and renee are really great!

Mayra, it was great to have you back, you are always a pleasure to work with and always going "above and beyond".



This was a great experience that I will never forget. I have been received very warmly. The tasks were not difficult and you have a lot of free time. the safaris are great. Devon is extremely good at his job as a guide. René is very responsible and ensures that everything runs smoothly. If something is bothering you, there is always time for a conversation where René listens very well and tries to help you as much as possible. I highly recommend this place if you like working with nature, animals and people!
