Experience the wilderness of Africa with your family and discover the impact of conservation through a perfect mix of hands-on activities and pioneering conservation projects whilst still enjoying breath-taking scenery, vast plains, rich animal diversity, warm hospitality and some of life's luxuries.
This incredible experience is for a family of 4 over 8 nights.
The first 4 nights you will experience the magnificence of Marataba, a 21,000-hectare (68,000-acre), privately managed section of the Marakele National Park, uniquely situated in Limpopo Province and known as one of South Africa's most innovative conservation models. You will be encouraged to get involved and actively contribute to the effort to conserve the natural area. Dynamic and fun, yet responsible and sustainable, the activities are entirely tailored to suit every individual and range from land rehabilitation and species identification to rhino notching and DNA collection, all of which are essential to the management of the ecosystem and the future of keystone species. Other activities include day and night game drives, boating, wild walking (16+), family-friendly nature walks, and visits to the Marataba Research and Rewilding Centre.
This is followed by a 4-night stay in the family room at Ant's Hill, a private game reserve also in the Waterberg Plateau, offering a home from home experience, delicious al-fresco dining and a vast variety of safari activities including horse riding, guided walks, day and night game drives and the unique opportunity to join in on some of the management activities of the reserve including game capture and relocation, treating injured animals and game census on horseback.
