Foxy Crocodile is all you dreamed of and so much more...

The phones are ringing, and people are all around.. Deadlines and meetings are the order of the day and while your head is in the game, your heart longs for escape. The deepest part of you longs for silence, interrupted only by the symphonies of the wild. You long for an escape from the chaos. For a reprieve to think, rest and reconnect with the one you love...

Tucked in the heart of the African bush, Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat is all you long for and more. Our spacious chalets are designed to allow you an intimate immersion in nature as you relax and recharge. Nestled on the banks of the Crocodile River bordering the world-renowned Kruger National Park, you can sleep in a hammock or read your book in the pool. You can watch birds and animals conduct their daily business from the comfort of your patio by day and by night, enjoy the warmth of your own fire as lions and hyenas broadcast their primaeval messages across the bush.

What we are trying to say, is you can pretty much do as you please at Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat. And, we don't have clocks...


About Us

Owners of Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat, Mark and Gail Fox, have a deep-seated love for Africa. Their love for Africa and for each other has grown over the course of their journey, which has included seasons of living in several African countries. During one of their absences from South Africa, they returned for a much-needed break at a game lodge. The respite was life-changing. It brought home the power of nature to restore and rejuvenate the weary human spirit, and a dream was born to make the experience accessible to others.

Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat is the realisation of that dream. Nestled on the banks of the Crocodile River, bordering the iconic Kruger National Park, two very spacious chalets welcome guests into a place of peace and relaxation. Each unit is beautifully decorated, and fitted with everything you need for the perfect bush holiday. The chalets have multiple relaxation areas that open out onto nature, where you can read a book, take a nap in outdoor serenity, or watch birds and animals roam free in their natural environment.

Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat was created specifically with couples in mind. Mark and Gail have intentionally created a stress-free space where couples can spend quality time together. This is evident in the little details that make this a sublime romantic escape. So, if you are looking for a place where you can literally escape with the one you love - Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat is for you. As Mark said, "There is an amazing healing power in being immersed in nature." As a huge nature-lover, Gail has embraced this profound truth as well. For her, living in Marloth Park has been a welcome reprieve from the chaos of civilisation.

Mark and Gail look forward to welcoming you to Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat. If their previous guests' experiences are anything to go by, it will be an unforgettable experience.
