The Greater Kruger is made up of a collection of private game farms which are unfenced and collectively share an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park.

Marc’s Camp is located in Motlala Game Reserve which is home to 3 of the Big 5 (rhino, buffalo and leopard), an abundance of antelope and prolific birdlife. It offers a selection of guest houses, treehouses and an adventure camp and delivers a delightfully authentic safari experience. Tucked in a grove of indigenous bushveld trees, each unit has a panoramic view of Breakfast Dam on the perennial Klaserie River.

Marc's Camp is located adjacent to Cheetah Inn in the 3 000-hectare Motlala Game Reserve, which falls within the Greater Kruger National Park. It’s ideally located to the iconic Kruger Park and the major tourist attractions in the Hoedspruit region. 

A swimming pool and open boma lie in the heart of Marc’s Camp, which is surrounded by rugged bushveld. It’s an unfenced safari destination and wild animals roam freely through the camp.
