Effective from 1 January 2024, both Explorers Camp and Founders Camp will be closing to commercial tourism. Explorers Camp will be run by a leading conservation organisation, and Founders Camp will revert to a private camp.
There will be no changes to the safari operations managed by MORE Family Collection within Marataba. They will continue to provide exceptional safari experiences at Marataba Safari Lodge and Marataba Mountain Lodge.
Staying at Marataba Founders & Explorers is all about balancing safari adventure and conservation with a generous dose of fun – and plenty of relaxation too. All guests enjoy a private vehicle and dedicated guide allowing for maximum flexibility and ‘mix and match’ activities during a stay. From tracking wildlife to ice-cold G&Ts at sunset, counting elephants to laidback boat trips on the Matlabas, your Marataba experience is entirely up to you.
Located at the foot of the Waterberg Mountains in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, Marataba Contractual National Park is a 21,000-hectare, privately-owned section of the Marakele National Park. It is one of the country’s most innovative conservation models and the perfect setting for a thoughtful, and completely flexible, safari experience.
