|MARATABA SAFARI COMPANY
ACCOMMODATION IN THE HEART OF LIMPOPO'S MARAKELE NATIONAL PARK
There is a mystical place at the foot of the Waterberg Mountains on the ancient trade route through southern Africa, from the mighty tower of "Great Zimbabwe", across the raging Limpopo River and past sweeping plains teeming with game. In this hidden place, discover Marataba, epitomising all that is Africa.
This luxurious game lodge reflects Africa's ancient wisdom and culture, the glorious forms and colour presenting a vibrant haven at the epicentre of modern design. Enter a sanctuary of mystery in harmony with the energy of nature and the environment, built of indigenous stone, sand and soil, enhanced by murmuring waters and vast vistas through glass walls.
Inspired by the discovery of primeval ruins, Marataba embraces both the contemporary and the ancient in an exciting union of innovative architecture, design and technology, paying tribute to, and confirming, the concept of the African Renaissance. Lulled by the heartbeat of the bushveld, awed by towering mountains, enthralled by the abundance of wildlife, secure and sensually nurtured in the indulgent atmosphere, live your dreams of safari at Marataba, a place where the plains touch the mountains.
Over the next three years Hunter Hotels plans to open an additional two beautiful lodges at Marataba - each uniquely individual, each created in the service excellence tradition associated with Hunter Hotels.

Evocative of ancient African remains, stone-masonry characterises the main lodge with huge expanses of glass taking full advantage of the spectacular panoramic scenery. Admire the view while enjoying a cocktail in the Ladies Bar or simply relax in one of the lodge's sumptuous lounges with a book from our library, housed within the stone tower offering a birds-eye view of the breathtaking surroundings.
Gourmet cuisine with fresh African flavours is served either in the elegantly appointed dining room or outdoors on the dining verandah or, alternatively, under a glorious African sky in the boma. And, as temperatures rise in Limpopo, cool off in our crystal clear pool. The main lodge also boasts a Guest Business Centre for those guests who can't totally escape from the outside world.
