Beyond exceptional safari experience.
During our 3 day stay at Marataba Safari Lodge, we were overwhelmed by the personal attentiveness of every staff member and their focus on comfort and our relaxation. Our accommodation was absolutely luxurious and it was an "Out of Africa"dream come true. Our safari experience was augmented by our field guide Hugh, who managed to find and introduce us "at close proximity" to the "Big 5" and their delightful animal baby's playing around. Hugh explained so clearly every aspect of the interactions between animal and their environment. Our stay was unforgettable and we hope to go back again.
This is the most perfect place on earth. The attention to detail is mild blowing. The wildlife on safari - incredible. The staff - flawless. I couldn’t fault a single thing, nothing I asked for was too much and they had usually already thought of everything. Best hotel I’ve ever stayed in.
Splendid and glamorous gateway
It was a pleasure to come back again to Marataba to try the mountain lodge and my experience was spectacular. I loved the cinematic view of the mountains and again the friendly staff made me feel at home. The food was amazing (big shout out to Gary for the delicious food). I enjoyed the game drives every day and our ranger (Anzelle) is one of the best. She has a great knowledge about the bush the animals the birds and everything related to the wildlife. I really enjoyed every drive. I tried Miss Mara water cruise twice (morning and evening) and each experience was different and superb (big shout out for James for being a great host) Of course I couldn’t come to Marataba and miss the chance to try the treehouse again. Every times feels like the first time. I was thrilled and I spend spectacular time out there in the bush.
Wonderful bush experience
We had a great time at Marataba! Thanks to all the team that made us feel safe and confortable in every way, specially cause I am 7 months pregnant and we have a 3 years old kid, and we felt so relaxed and happy all the time!
MARATABE SAFARI LODGE
This was our first trip to this lodge, and whilst the game viewing exceeded our expectations, what really made this place so memorable, is our exceptional guide who really went the extra mile to personalise our experience, and the variety and landscape experiences from mountains, to plains, to water. We will definitely be back.
