There is arguably no better place to celebrate the start of a very special union than in the African bush. Whether small and intimate, or more extravagant, Marataba Safari Lodge is highly fixable and can accommodate groups of up to 30 guests.



15 canvas-and-stone Luxury Tented Suites are exquisitely furnished and decorated with a contemporary twist. Each Suite has its own private deck overlooking the sweeping plains, meandering river and dramatic scenery of the Waterberg Mountains.
