The Marakele National Park is in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains. As its Tswana name suggests, it has become a ‘place of sanctuary’ for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa.
With its spectacular scenery and great diversity of flora and fauna, Marakele now rivals the Kruger National Park. After the neighbouring private game reserve joined forces and all fences were removed, the Greater Marakele area now boasts a range of approximately 75 000 hectares.
