About Marataba Mountain Lodge

The lodge is cleverly situated on the hillside at the bottom of Waterfall Valley. It is surrounded by mountain streams, the source of the Matlabas River (which flows into the mighty Limpopo River, and eventually into the Indian Ocean).

The area surrounding the lodge has sweet savannah grasslands in the valley below, and broadleaved sour veld habitat on the hills above, while some of the gorges are filled with riverine forest habitats.

All units have spectacular views down into Waterfall Valley, which is particularly magical at sunset!

This is the place for the person who is after a “Digital Detox’, wanting to disconnect completely. With neither Wi-Fi nor cellphone reception the sun shares just enough of its energy to power selected equipment such as cameras, iPads and phones to ensure they are always at the ready to capture another glorious day.

With the absence of modern amenities and technology, the Lodge is utterly remote, promising authentic exclusivity where you are one-on-one with Nature.

A number of Trails are available, including Riverine, Gorge, Mountain and Interest Trails.
