I found Marakele a great Safari destination because of the overall beauty and fauna and flora diversity. The reserve consists of anything from open grass fields to mountain ranges and the climate is moderate. It is highly recommended to make use of the excellent guides available on their safari tours. Nature lovers will find what they are looking for, whether it is plants, birds or the larger wildlife. Marakele is a great safari destination which I highly recommend...

When I camped at Marakele the roads were bad in wet weather and not having a 4 x 4 we got stuck several times. It is a relatively new reserve with no big game but good bird life.

Lots of animals for such a small park. It can't beat the Kruger but as it is small and very quiet, the experience is better. And scenery is awesome too.
