About Marataba Explorers Camp

Marataba Explorers Camp is an immersive glamping safari experience in the beautiful Waterberg region of the Limpopo Province. Tucked away inside the vast 21,000-hectare Marataba Contractual Park at the base of the scenic Waterberg Mountains, Marataba Explorers Camp offers lovers of nature the opportunity to experience the wild in its purest form – with all the comforts of home.

The camp offers just six tents under the shade of indigenous trees, and allows a maximum of just two bookings at a time for a truly immersive, intimate getaway in the bush. Marataba Explorers Camp also features a swimming pool, spacious outdoor deck overlooking the private watering hole, and a main lodge area with a bar, dining area, lounge and indoor fireplace – making it an ideal choice for families and groups of friends who are looking for an all-inclusive safari experience.

Safaris, conservation activities, swimming, hiking, and other adventures in the surrounding gorges and mountains are just a few of the activities on offer, while relaxation takes centre stage back at camp where guests can kick back with a cold drink as they watch the waterhole in front of the deck.
