in MARATABA, SOUTH AFRICA
rich, bold, organic and patently magnificent
There is no typical guest as the the clientele on any given day range from honeymooners to multi-generational families, safari first-timers to game lodge veterans.
Marataba Safari Lodge is a simple extension of the natural environment beyond its walls. If you sit quietly for long enough, you can feel the energy of the countless people who have made this place home since The Stone Age.
Options to relax outside of your tent include a communal pool with loungers, hammocks amongst the trees and a library with plush brown leather sofas; alternatively, book an in-room spa treatment on your deck and zone out to sounds of the birds and the breeze. For those wanting alternatives for Big Five excursions beyond vehicle drives, Marataba offers a walking safari and a must-do water safari, where guests navigate the Matlabas River in search of hippos, lions and much more while on the lodge’s pontoon, Miss Mara.

Enjoy two thrilling safaris daily
One at sunrise where we witness the wild awakening and see what hunts happened during the night.
Enjoy the sunrise as your rangers prepare coffee or tea and you take in the beauty of this amazing experience.
Our evening safari is quite spectacular, as we drive out to watch the sunset, we meet heards of elephants, watch lions and cubs play, zebras grazing and then before dark we set up a sundowner, and enjoy drinks,cocktails and light snacks and relish in all the amazing moments we have witnessed.
This is where you will want to pinch yourself. We then journey on into the night and watch the night animals come alive before we head back to the lodge for an amazing 5 star dinner.
With Marataba based in Marakele National Park’s private 23,000-hectare concession only shared with a sister lodge, the guests’ common denominator is preference for exclusivity.
Just four hours from Johannesburg, this is a sanctuary where busy people can find themselves again by connecting with nature. We were rendered breathless by the dramatic Waterberg mountains, vast plains, rich animal diversity and winding rivers cutting through the landscape of the Marakele National Park.
Rich red mountain rock meets lush green plains (where you will find yellowwood and cedar trees, 5m high cycads and tree ferns). All of 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, with more than 800 breeding pairs) have settled here.
