ON SAFARI IN YOUR OWN GARDEN
THE ADVENTURE BEGINS AT UCHAWI

welcome to Uchawi wa Afrika

Uchawi wa Afrika literally means 'the magic of Africa'.
And so it started ... Almost 20 years ago we went to Africa for the first time. Initially the two of us, later also with our children. Africa had a deep impact on us: the light, the sky, the colors, smells and sounds, the people and animals.

Meanwhile we have seen many parts of southern Africa, have traveled a lot and experienced magical moments, including sunrise and sunset when the colors are at their best: magic hour!
During one of our trips we ended up in Marloth Park: a piece of paradise on earth. For us this is where everything came together: living between wild animals in a beautiful bush villa with a breathtaking setting, only a few hundred meters from the famous Kruger National Park. We wish that your stay in our house will give your own lasting experience of magical Africa.

ENJOY THE MAGIC OF AFRICA;
AN EXPERIENCE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET!

Book your dream villa in South Africa

Experience the magic in your own bush villa

The adventure begins at Uchawi as where else you can have a zebra drinking or a kudu eating while you relax in the pool? Wild animals, but in Marloth Park they come within touching distance (but they are still wild animals!).

Your luxury villa, comfortably furnished and fully equipped, allows you to enjoy your well-deserved rest and privacy, while the wild animals roam freely in the surrounding bush.
Enjoy the bird choir from the verandah, with a cup of coffee in hand, in the morning or hear lion’s and hippo roar during your braai and in the evening. Sleeping with the sounds of wild animals: it is possible at Uchawi. You are on a safari but in your own garden! An unforgettable Africa experience.

Bushvilla Uchawi is located in Marloth Park, a unique private game reserve and holiday park on the southern border of the authentic Kruger Park. On two sides Marloth Park is connected to the Kruger Park by the Crocodile River. On the river banks you can see the animals of the Kruger Park and almost daily “big 5” members.

When you arrive, Adele will welcome you showing you the house and handing over the keys. If so desired, the fridge is filled with basic products so that you can relax immediately.
Adele is also your point of contact for (extra) cleaning, linen good or if something is broken or malfunctioning. Of course, she is also happy to answer all your questions.

If you looking for beautiful house and with an astonishing surrounding, then Uchawi Wa Afrika is the right place. The house exceed my expection from aesthetics to every human need you could ever have (from bedding to cutlery to internet connection to visual entertainment). The level of security is unmatched, since arrival my phone slept on the Veranda more than once and I still found it intact every morning.

I am definitely making my way there again next year!!!!

Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts for our wonderful weekend at Marloth. The girls and I had an absolute ball and was exactly what we needed. The house is lovely - spacious, very comfortable and has everything one could possibly need. The pool is stunning and was so refreshing in the heat, we ended up spending most of our time outside, swimming and chilling on the deck. We had the Kudu, Duiker, Warthogs and a multitude of birds around often and evenings were spent out on the deck, enjoying the peace and quiet. We will definitely make a plan to stay there again!

Great holiday on Uchawi Marloth! The new bush villa is spacious, tastefully decorated and has nice large beds. Nice detail: the space (mezzanine) above the rear bedroom; very nice for the children and with a view of Kruger Park! You can sit outside on the covered terrace and there is a large heated swimming pool. The animals (kudu, zebra, giraffe, warthog) often come along and can be fed from the deck. Very special! In fact, we just want to return next year.

We spent a very special weekend break away perfectly located for a tranquil bush experience. The covered Veranda area is where we spent our time. From braaing, to relaxing comfortably, to swimming & feeding the animals with pellets bought from the local shop. Kudu, zebra, impala, warthog & guinea fowls were daily visitors. As well as showering under the outside shower under the stars.The interior is spacious & tastefully decorated & fully equipped. Home away from home. And the beds are very comfy. Highly recommended.

We loved our long weekend at this spacious lodge. Four adults and three busy boys and not once did we feel claustrophobic. The boys really appreciated the heated pool, especially as we were there at the end of winter. Having the local kudus and zebra visit us every evening was a real treat, they truly are majestic animals.
