Marataba Safari Lodge

Bushveld luxury just outside Joburg


Part of More Hotels, Marataba Safari Lodge lies in an exclusive 23,000-hectare Big-5 reserve at the foothills of the Waterberg Mountains. Alongside Africa’s mighty Big 5 you will also encounter a wide variety of birds, including the largest colony of endangered Cape vultures in the world (more than 800 breeding pairs have been settled here!). Marataba has a large population of leopards and sightings of these elusive beasts are quite common.

Situated in a malaria-free region only four hours north of Johannesburg, Marataba is surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills, and rich valleys. Here you'll find rare yellowwood and cedar trees, five-metre high cycads, and tree ferns. A special perk of the lodge is a boat that takes guests out on the Matlabas River where they can enjoy sundowners and a spectacular view of the Waterberg Mountain Range.

The lodge features 15 Luxury Tents. Each Suite has its own private deck overlooking the Waterberg Mountains and a river below. The lavish free-standing stone baths in each Suite come with indoor as well as outdoor showers. A lawn in front of the lodge overlooks a popular waterhole and serves as the setting where dinners are served.
