JOHANNESBURG, 27 February 2024 – Marataba Residence in the Marakele National Park is added to MORE Family Collection Residences, a selection of exclusive-use properties in sought after locations in South Africa.

Marataba is a 23 000ha (56 834ac) privately managed reserve within the malaria free Marakele National Park. Encircled by the sweeping Waterberg Mountain vistas, the park hosts an impressive wildlife diversity that includes the Big Five. Set in a remote corner of the reserve, along the Matlabas river, Marataba Residence offers privacy and exclusivity for families. With its own professional field guide and safari vehicle, guests have complete flexibility on safari.

“We are excited for this new addition to our MORE Family Collection Residences. Marataba is an incredibly beautiful area with its iconic mountain range, the serenity of the Matlabas River, and a diversity of wildlife that includes a healthy rhino population. Marataba Residence provides an additional and exciting option over and above our two luxury lodges,” says CEO and Custodian, Robert More. “We are grateful for the opportunity extended by the original Founders family to share this space and add this Residence to our collection. They have always prioritised conservation and nature experiences that align with our ethos.”

Marataba Residence offers a tranquil retreat set in nature as the unique layout ensures maximum privacy – four bedrooms have been built as stand-alone accommodation with a main, shared lodge comprising a spacious lounge, bar and dining room, as well as a swimming pool and fire deck with an incredible view over the Matlabas River. The Residence caters for up to eight adults and two children, with the team catering for young ones with nature treasure hunts, spoor identification and mould making, arts and crafts, stargazing and more. There’s also an opportunity to take part in the veterinary care of endangered rhinos from April to September.

For Robert More, it’s about valuable time together, “Families need time together to reconnect and there’s nowhere better than in nature to pause and feel replenished. It’s a memorable African adventure experience where guests can set their own pace and simply be.”
