Marataba Marakele’s setting will live in your memory for a long time. Placed at the Waterberg Mountains, this family-fun camp of 15 large tented suites is picture-perfect. Marvel as the light bounces off the iron-red rock of the mountains creating a ravishing golden glow.
Each tent is divinely appointed with freestanding stone baths and private decks – sink into a hammock and watch game stroll by. Having a moonlit outdoor shower under the stars ranks as one of our favourite African experiences.
Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi in the main lodge area and a swimming pool with sun loungers. The rangers are knowledgeable and we recommend both the bush walks and the water safaris on the meandering river. The White Rhino spotting here is unparalleled. Marakele National Park means ‘a place of sanctuary’ in the local Setwana tongue and there could not be a more fitting moniker of this most special of safari camps.
