Visit the vulture colony, spot leopards, and admire the spiraling horns of the kudu at Marakele National Park, a 670 sq km (260 sq mi) reserve. Located in a transitional area between the dry west and the moister, more fertile east of the country, the national park provides sanctuary for a great diversity of South African wildlife across its fast-changing, dramatic landscape of rivers, gorges, bluffs, forests, and grasslands. With the reintroduction of buffalo in 2013, the park boasts the Big Five game animals for which the country has become a popular safari destination. Marakele National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Waterberg Edition.

We were surrounded by ostriches that regularly came to inspect. From your seat a nice view over a meadow where the zebras, kudus and warts piggies came over. Spacious rooms with good facilities. In the first part of the park there are no predators but it is only a short ride to that part of the park where all the animals are found. We saw 8 rhinos of which 4 are very close. They do everything to protect the rhinos in this park as well as possible. From the air, along the gates and at the gate is well controlled.
