Worth getting out of bed for
The dramatic Marakele National Park encompasses plains, dense bushveld, mountains and rivers. There is a very good chance of seeing the Big Five: lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, black rhino and elephant. The park is also home to a multitude of other animal species including rare antelope such as roan, sable and mountain reedbuck. This malaria-free wilderness also has the world's largest breeding colony of the endangered Cape vulture. Birdlife within the park is prolific with more than 400 species having been recorded.
