There is a wide variety of flora and fauna, a chance to see the Big Five and over 40 special of game including the highly endangered Sable antelope.

Marataba Safari Lodge is in a 23,000 hectare private area at the foothills of the Waterberg Mountains and forms part of the Marakele National Park in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The Marakele National Park is a haven for an impressive variety of wildlife, thanks to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and wetter eastern regions of South Africa.
