our safari experiences

Staying in Marataba Contractual Park is all about balancing conservation and adventure with a generous dose of fun. Our activities are flexible and designed with you in mind. From tracking cheetah and counting elephants, to boat trips on the Matlabas and ice cold G&Ts at sunset, your experience is entirely up to you.


Our two camps are Founders Camp and Explorers Camp. From the intimate and serene setting of Founders, to the relaxed, easygoing nature of Explorers, both offer a unique opportunity to enjoy the wild spaces of Marataba and spend time with friends and family.
