Marataba safari lodge tented suite views 2400

Marataba Safari Lodge

Discover Marataba Safari Lodge

Marataba Safari Lodge is a luxurious tented safari camp in the Marataba reserve, a 21,000-hectare (52,000-acre), privately managed section of the Marakele National Park, in South Africa's Waterberg region. This malaria-free reserve is only 3.5 hours' drive from Johannesburg and 45 minutes by private air charter.

The 15 tents possess slick contemporary design that melds with the surrounding wilderness thanks to an excellent choice of colors, a canvas roof and part stone-part canvas walls. From your private balcony you can gaze across at the Waterberg Mountains, rising nearby. All rooms include viewing decks, outdoor and indoor showers and a romantic stand-alone bath. Enjoy twice-daily game drives, after-breakfast bush walks, specialist Marataba Trails, and cruise into the late afternoon with a sundowner Miss Mara Water Safari.
