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.

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.

Safely Explore the Wildlife
This beautiful piece of Waterberg wilderness combines some of the most dramatic scenery in South Africa with a plethoric wildlife experience. The Marakele National Park holds a truly immense variety of mammals that are readily seen. The mountains are a safe haven to a number of interesting and unique plant, mammal and bird species, like: the Aardwolf, the Bat-Eared Fox, the Ground Pangolin, the Brown Hyena, and the Bird of Marakele: Gurneys Sugarbird, Cape Vulture, Half-collared Kingfisher, White-backed Night-Heron, Verraux’s Eagle-Owl, Mountain Wagtail, Ant-eating Chat.
Two Guided Safaris a Day
In the company of your Field Guide, you will learn more about the Big Five and the many unique animal species found on the Marakele National Park. 2 safaris a day (one early morning, and one late afternoon, into the evening) are each approximately 3-4 hours long, and include a scenic coffee and sundowner break to purely appreciate just being in the moment. Predators are accustomed to the vehicles at Marataba, and do not see them as a threat. This enables Guides to get into very close proximity with Africa’s most impressive animal species. Photographic opportunities are simply spectacular!
Spa & Wellness
Pamper yourself and indulge in a relaxing and revitalising treatment with our qualified therapist in the luxury and privacy of your Suite. Spend quiet time at the poolside, and soak in the restorative rays of the sun. A great form of exercise is one of our Walking Safaris. Each walk is tailored to suit the disposition and fitness level of the guest. One cannot help but feel alive in this magical place.
Cuisine & Dining Experience
Our chefs are adept at crafting cuisine that will appeal to any palate, be that sweet tooth, vegetarian, health fan or meat lover. Only fresh seasonal ingredients are used, and prepared in the lodge kitchens every day. Three sumptuous meals per day, as well as a number of delectable treats, will ensure that no one goes hungry!
