Marataba Trails Lodge

Marataba Reserve is one of the spectacularly beautiful places – its beauty will leave you breathless. Rich red mountain rock bears down on the verdant plains at its feet, and it is not hard to imagine a time long past when Stone Age settlers sought refuge in the sanctuary of Marakele. Contrasting mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterize the park. Rare finds of yellowwood and cedar trees, 5m high cycads and free ferns are some of the plant species you will find. All of the large game species from elephant to rhino to the big cats, as well as an amazing variety of birds (including the largest colony of endangered Cape vultures in the world, with more than 800 breeding pairs) have settled there.

Marataba Walking Trails Lodge is an extension of the natural environment which inspired its creation. The lodge is built ‘of the earth’ around sound ecological methods and principles. This is the place for the person who is looking for a Digital Detox, wanting to disconnect completely. With neither WiFi nor cellphone reception the sun shares just enough of its energy to power selected equipment such as cameras, iPads and phones to ensure they are always at the ready to capture another glorious day. With the absence of modern amenities and technology, this lodge is utterly remote, promising authentic exclusivity where you are one-on-one with Nature.

All trails are based on either two or three night departures. The day of the week that a trail departs on will depend on the first confirmed booking for that week. Marataba is blessed with a great diversity of eco-systems and landscapes. The trails make use of different areas of the reserve ensuring a variety of experiences. Guides will assess each of the individual guests, and will match trails to suit fitness levels and walkers personal preferences.

Marataba Trails Lodge Amenities

Each of the 5 luxurious suites will have a King sized bed / twin beds, a private shaded viewing deck, a fireplace, en-suite bathroom with a rain dance shower (with a view), free standing vanity and a mini viewing deck. Here the intrepid explorer is treated to an incomparable walking safari on nature’s terms without compromising on the creature comforts.

Area Attractions

Morning and afternoon trails depart from the camp each day, with the option of enjoying a full-day hike and picnic in winter. A variety of trails options are available, differing in respect of degree of difficulty and fitness required. Trails range from trekking over the top of the Kransberg range, to traversing through gorges. Regardless of the route, the one thing that remains consistent is the likelihood of encountering wildlife along the way. Evenings are spent in good company around the fire in the boma, learning about bush cooking techniques, local customs and legends. Astronomy finds its best practical application beneath the heavens.

Riverine Trails – these trails follow the natural river course, and are great for ‘bumping’ into general game. Walkers will traverse to some of the bigger waterholes which attract a number of animal species including hippo.
Gorge Trails – these trails descend into the gorges of the Waterberg Mountains. Here walkers will traverse into unchartered areas of the reserve only accessible by foot. There may even be an opportunity to have a swim in one of the fresh water pools.
Mountain Trails – a few of the longer trails move up and over some of the mountains in the reserve into neighbouring valleys. The vistas from these trails are second-to-none, presenting Africa in all its vastness.
Interest Trails – there is a significant history to this reserve, and these trails will offer walkers the opportunity to see cave paintings, iron age ruins and other relics of The Stone Age.
