Limpopo, Marakele National Park

2678
VIEWS

The Marakele National Park in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, as its Tswana name suggests, has become a ‘place of sanctuary’ for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa. Contrasting majestic mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterize the park. Rare finds of yellowwood and cedar trees, five metre high cycads and tree ferns, are some of the plant species found here.

All the large game species from elephant and rhino to the big cats as well as an amazing variety of birds including what’s probably the largest colony of endangered Cape vultures (more than 800 breeding pairs) in the world, have settled here. The park offers safari tents accommodation, caravans and tents camping, dormitory accommodation at the Environmental Centre (group bookings), guided game drives and walks, picnic site and also clients are welcome to do self-game drives at their own leisure.

Directions
From Gauteng take N1 to Bela-Bela (Warmbaths) and from there follow the R516 via Mabula and Leeupoort to Thabazimbi or travel via Brits and follow the R511 via Beestekraal to Thabazimbi and the park is 12km East of town on the Alma Road
