Information about Marakele National Park

Marakele National Park is set in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains in the Limpopo Province in South Africa. As it's Tswana name suggests, Marakele is a 'place of sanctuary' for an outstanding array of bird and wildlife species. It offers breathtaking mountain scenery.


A narrow tar road takes visitors up to the top of the Waterberg massif. Views and scenery are spectacular. The park hosts one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of this endangered species.

While birds may be seen in the air catching thermals anywhere in the park, the drive up to the Sentech Towers is nearest to the colony and close encounters with these enormous birds will leave visitors breathless.


Marakele National Park features 400 types of birds and 765 plant species including Yellow-wood Trees and 5 meter high Cycads. Marakele has a high density of both Rhino species and most visitors should see these animals, particularly the more gregarious and diurnal White Rhinoceros.  As browsers, the Kudu antelope are in their element at Marakele, visitors can be on the look out for the magnificent bulls with their towering spiral horns.  The African Elephant had previously been reintroduced into the park and although one of the highlights, it was the release of the Tuli Elephants in 1999 that captured the public’s and media’s imagination.  The not-so-often-seen-elsewhere antelope species such as Reedbuck, Mountain Reedbuck, Eland and Tsessebe can also be found here.


Summers in the Waterberg region are hot but the area does not suffer from the stifling humidity typical of the eastern Lowveld of South Africa.


Marakele National Park provides guests to the area with great photographic opportunities of the surrounding mountain landscape and stunning sunsets.


Marakele National Park is about 3 hours drive north of Johannesburg.
