Located within the game-rich Marakele National Park, Marataba Safari Lodge offers a luxury safari camp experience.
Accommodations at the camp consist of fifteen unique stone and canvas tents for a maximum of thirty people . Each tent is exquisitely decorated and tastefully furnished with polished wood floors and deep-cushioned chairs. These spacious rooms feature double beds that can convert to twins and open-plan bathrooms with outdoor showers. Guests can lounge on their private deck and enjoy the lush, verdant surroundings and sounds of nature. Other amenities include air conditioning, fans, in-room safe, hairdryers, mini bar, tea/coffee, heated floor, dressing gowns, and a fridge.
The Marataba Safari Lodge is situated in the private Marakele National Park, just a three-hour drive from Johannesburg. This fifty-seven-thousand-acre reserve sits at the foothills of the Waterberg Mountains. Moreover, it is a malaria risk-free area. The park hosts one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of the endangered Cape Vulture. Large predators such as brown hyena, leopard and now also lion, occur in the park. Kudu, elephants, and a variety of antelope roam the reserve too. In the future, a range of iron-age sites will be made available to the public.
