Founders Camp occupies an enviable position in a 21 000 hectare (52 000 acre), privately managed section of Marakele National Park. The upscale tented accommodation provides a pleasant retreat in Africa’s untamed wilderness, perfectly blending a classic safari experience with the comfort of modern luxuries.
Guests enjoy spectacular views of the lush surrounding bushveld and majestic Waterberg mountain range, as well as encounter South Africa’s rich wildlife on day and night game drives as well as walking safaris. The highlight at staying at this camp, however, are the conservation activities on offer. Guests have the opportunity to make a difference during their visit by getting involved, applying their minds and actively contributing to Founders Camp’s efforts to conserve the area. These activities include community outreach, wildlife interventions, elephant and predator management, DNA collection, camera tap analysis and other exciting projects.
A stay at Marataba Founders Camp promises the perfect mix of hands-on activities, pioneering conservation projects and spectacular scenery – all with a comfortable bed to lay your head on at the end of the day.
