About the Lodge

Marataba, a 21 000-hectare (52 000-acre), privately managed section of the Marakele National Park, is uniquely situated where lush bushveld gives way to the Kalahari sands, in South Africa’s Limpopo Province.

Glamping in one of Safari Lodge’s 15 luxury Tented Suites brings you closer to nature, without trading comfort for the experience. You might spot a passing elephant or giraffe right from your deck!

The lodge is a simple extension of the natural environment beyond its walls – natural, rich, and bold. If you sit quietly for long enough, you can feel the energy of the countless people who have made this place home for aeons. And while Safari Lodge’s stone and canvas Suites my look ‘down to earth’, they are anything but basic, with all the modern features included.

The 11 two-sleeper Tented Suites are contemporary chic, but still manage to capture the essence of classic 'out of Africa'. Each features a king-sized bed, fully-stocked minibar, freestanding bath, en-suite and outdoor showers, along with a shaded deck raised on stilts to make the most of the bush views.

Each of the four Family Tented Suites gives children their own en-suite bedroom. It’s just like home (only better!) with a bunkbed, ample toys and games, fun bath-time amenities, robes and slippers, and a spacious shower. There’s plenty of room for everyone, and the separate, en-suite main bedroom gives parents more of their own space to feel right at home, too
