Set in 240 square kilometres of private reserve, guests will often have wild game all to themselves.
Even if you didn't see a single animal, a stay at South Africa's Marataba Safari Company would still be memorable. The surroundings are that beautiful, the accommodations and gourmet African cuisine that good. But, of course, you'll see all the wildlife you can imagine - lions, leopards, elephants, cape buffalo, and rhinos, to name just a few.
Life here is deceptively simple, yet full of experiences you'll likely remember your whole life. A discrete wake-up call will rouse you from a restful slumber in your exotic tent suite. First breakfast, then the morning safari. Afterward, you'll have time for a lengthy lunch, and perhaps a siesta or dip in the pool. High tea precedes your second game drive or walk of the day.
On returning to the Marataba Safari Company lodge, all that's left is to share stories of the day's adventures over dinner. Later, a cocktail and some lounging are in order, and then early to bed to rest up for tomorrow's morning safari. Simple, yes, and perfectly so.
