As I sit sipping a cocktail and watching the sun set over the beautiful Waterberg Mountains, it's hard to imagine I could ever want to be anywhere else. Marataba is simply stunning! This luxurious game lodge is designed to evoke the imagery of ancient African remains, and the scenery is simply out of this world. Huge expanses of glass in the main lodge maximise the views.
I stayed in one of the charming tented suites, shaded by a canopy of trees and designed to blend in with the natural surroundings. My bedroom has an amazing view of the river and the bush, which when combined with mountain, sky and the trees makes for quite a sight indeed. And of-course the cuisine is always excellent! Situated in Marakele National Park, home to the Big Five and other wonderful animals, this pristine sanctuary is perfect for game viewing, offering an experience I will cherish for a very long time.
