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.
For the adventurous, Marataba is an escape into the wilderness. Whether keen on exploring the spectacular gorges that cut through the foothills, walking through the awe-inspiring mountains, or just taking a relaxed, family stroll to enjoy a picnic and a swim in one of the crystal-clear mountain streams, this is the perfect place to dip into nature and explore on foot.
Our guides are always available to discuss expectations and design your perfect expedition, from slow, rambling nature walks, ending in a refreshing river swim, to longer ‘wild walks’ that will definitely get your heart rate up! It is also possible to book one or two nights at the Sleepout, in addition to a stay at Founders or Explorers, and embark on a full day walking expedition followed by a night in the wild.
