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.
A tranquil retreat into nature, Founders is located on the banks of the Matlabas River offering panoramic views over the landscape and iconic mountains ahead. The light, bright interiors are a sophisticated fusion of traditional and contemporary; four bedroom suites beckon for afternoons watching wildlife amble along the riverbank, and the living areas for sundowner G&Ts and alfresco dinners. The safari timetable is 100% up to you, whether that’s rising with the sun and getting involved in the happenings on the reserve, or simply taking it easy with a good book and that magnificent view.
