Marakele Netional Park, South Africa


This is not simply a sleep out – this is an adventure with Africa

The reserve’s 23 000 hectares are unlike anything you have ever seen, with spectacular landscapes featuring mountains, cliff faces, gorges, open savannahs and navigable waterways. You will be struck by the sheer diversity and abundance of wildlife and see that this place could hold its own among South Africa’s greatest reserves. Within this vast wilderness you’ll find just two lodges – Marataba Safari Lodge and Marataba Mountain Lodge. For a one-on-one private African safari, you truly don’t get better than this.

Safari your way – by game drive, on a bush walk and trail, or aboard Miss Mara

- when we discovered Marataba, we instantly knew we had found something very special -

Sensory pleasure; personalised service; and excellent healthy food (expertly paired with fine South African wines) are just some elements that go towards elevating the Marataba experience to another level.
