Marataba is a malaria-free 23000-hectare private concession within the Marakele National Park, just four hours from Johannesburg, this is a sanctuary where busy people can find themselves again by connecting with nature. The dramatic Waterberg Mountains, vast plains, rich animal diversity and winding rivers cut through the landscape. Marataba is about contrasts. Between verdant plains and the ochre-red mountains; between modern and ancient; between animals mammoth and miniscule.
