About Bontle Rest Camp Marakele National Park SANParks

 Sleeps 236
Check-in: 2:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
 Minimum stay: 1 Days

The Marakele National Park in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, as its Tswana name suggests, has become a "place of sanctuary" for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa. Contrasting majestic mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterise the park.

It's no coincidence that bontle means "beautiful" in Setswana. This pleasant rest camp consists of 36 camp sites with power points, arranged into three clusters with one communal ablution block per cluster.

The rest camp, with its unobstructed views of the unspoiled bush and mountain, is located in close proximity to the Park's main entrance gate.

PLEASE NOTE: the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Quotes will include the 1% Community Levy, but will exclude daily conservation fees, which are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.

Fairly dissapointed in the cleaning schedule at the ablution blocks with a full camp. Should imagine that it will at least be done twice per day. It was also dissapointing to trvel in the big 5 area to almost find no animals besides the elephants and rhinos. I couldn’t see any feeding process to assist during this extreme draught. All I can think is that most animals died because of the draught.... Read more

We drove for three days and saw very little game. We did not see any of the big five in the three days. We decided to go the main viewpoint. It is a amazing view from the top, we had to use a bathroom, there was... Read more
