Visitor Tips

  • Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, a hat and sunscreen lotion. Also remember to take along medicines such as anti-histamine and lotion for insect stings and bites.
  • Cool clothing for summer and warm for winter – the region is subject to sudden changes in weather, particularly in the mountains.
  • Remember charcoal or wood, as this is not available in the park.
  • Visitors should also remember to take a torch along, as the camp has no illumination between units at night.
  • The safari camp has not been fenced and therefore visitors to Marakele are warned to stay within the confines of the tent and deck area. Walking outside the confines of the camp will put you at risk of dangerous game and negatively affect the experience of other visitors.
  • No open vehicles are allowed. Passengers on the back of an open vehicle are also not allowed.
  • Medical, pharmaceutical, vehicle repair, fuel, post office and police at Thabazimbi.
