Marataba Safari Lodge is set in a malaria-free 23000 hectare private concession at the foothills of the Waterberg Mountains and the reserve forms part of the Marakele National Park in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The Marakele National Park is a haven for an impressive variety of wildlife, thanks to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and wetter eastern regions of South Africa.
Contrasting majestic mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterise this spectacular park. Rare finds of yellowwood and cedar trees, 5m high cycads and tree ferns, are some of the exceptional plant species you will find here. All the large game species from elephant and rhino to the big cats, as well as an amazing variety of birds including the largest colony of endangered Cape vultures in the world (more than 800 breeding pairs) have settled here.
The Marataba rangers have an intricate knowledge of the bush and its wildlife and a passion for conservation. Learn about the behaviour and habitats of the animals, the history and origins of the land, its people and cultures. The opportunity to walk in the African bushveld is reminiscent of the intrepid explorers who navigated wild Africa in years gone by. Guests can follow in the footsteps of these brave explorers and, along with a qualified guide, head out on designated routes through the park. Each route has been created by animals walking these same paths, year after year, creating a well-worn route through the dramatic landscape of the Waterberg Mountains. Learn about the medicinal uses of the local flora, view animals at eye level and experience the rhythm and energy of the bush.
At Marataba staff create a fun environment for children where they get to experience what it is like to walk in the shoes of a game ranger. Guides take special care to spend time with the children on game drives or back at the lodge, teaching and guiding them through the wonders of nature and the African bush. Children gain insight and understanding of the contribution they can make towards the conservation of our animals and plants from these child-friendly trips. As many of the lodge staff have kids of their own, they know and understand what an unforgettable experience it is for children to be in the bush. The lodge can easily accommodate families, as each of the tents may be configured to include children travelling with parents. There are cots available for babies, and stretcher beds for children between the ages of 2 and 16.
Follow your heart to the bush. Whether it’s your first breakaway as a couple or your second honeymoon, you want it to be an unforgettable experience. Romantic, idyllic, private and secluded – Marataba Safari Lodge is the ideal setting to celebrate the start of a new life together or to fall in love all over again.
