Marataba Safari Camp

Marataba is located in a 23,000 hectare private concession adjoining the vast, malarial-free Marakele National Park with dramatic views of the Waterberg escarpment. This conservation success story has been regenerated over the last 20 years and now offers a game rich safari experience in one of South Africa’s most diverse and beautiful areas of bushveld - the only savannah biosphere in the world!

Marataba Safari Lodge is set on tranquil river with stunning views. There are 15 luxury Tented Suites, natural, rich, and bold, each with a private deck perched above the river below, where wildlife often comes to drink. Each tent offers air-conditioning if required, and is fitted with king or twin beds, quality linen, indoor and outdoor showers and free-standing stone baths. Four of the Tented Suites include a second children’s bunk-bed room, with its own en-suite bathroom and are ideally suited for families. These suites are not built on stilts to ensure the safety of younger guests.

The main guest area has comfortable sofas and a warm fireplace, a well-stocked library, a boma and a dining deck, plus a large swimming pool with shaded loungers and hammocks in the trees. The lodge welcomes guests of all ages, with a fun packed Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Safari Club covering all bases, from mealtimes to excursions.  Enjoy game drives with professional field guides, specialist hiking trails, sunset water safaris, relaxing spa treatments or a night under the stars in your own treehouse.

For something a little more intimate, Marataba Mountain Lodge is a secluded retreat set on a hillside overlooking the Waterfall Valley. Here you’ll find just five beautifully designed Eco Suites, simple and stripped back, yet sophisticated and spacious with all the modern amenities. Finally Marataba’s newest project is their Founders and Explorers Conservation Camps.  Ideal for couples or families, you can immerse yourself in the solitude of the vast, wild spaces of Marataba whilst actively participating in essential conservation projects.
