Marataba Safari Lodge is a simple extension of the natural environment beyond its walls – rich, bold, organic and patently magnificent. If you sit quietly for long enough, you can feel the energy of the countless people who have made this place home since The Stone Age.

Whether you prefer your own company or that of new-found friends, there are a number of spots from which to soak up the view – pool lounger or grassy patch.
