Marataba is one of South Africa’s biodiversity hotspots. The area is not only rich in its diversity of wildlife and flora, but the magnificent landscape provides an unforgettable and everchanging backdrop to day and night game drives by safari vehicle, as well as boat cruises on the lazy Matlabas River.
Game drives and boat cruises are the best way to cover large distances and get a real feel for the park, while still enjoying wildlife sightings and building up a general environmental understanding. The boat cruise is a wonderful experience for birding and enjoying the beauty of the scenery and landscapes.
Start and end busy days by focusing your thoughts and considering your role in helping to conserve Africa’s wild places. Spend some mindful time with a morning yoga session as the sun rises over the escarpment, or simply find yourself a secluded spot where the spectacular scenery, silence and smells of the bush can help you slip into a mindful meditation.
