We are old African hands who have seen innumerable elephant, lion etc - still love seeing them, but we wanted to find some of the more elusive animals. Marrick was recommended and we did two night safaris there - both about 3-1/2 hrs in bitterly cold July weather, but we loved every minute. The highlights were Bat-eared Fox, Cape Porcupine,...

We had an awesome few days at Marrick. We went there for the excellent mountain biking and we weren’t disappointed - it was like a safari on two wheels! We went out for a couple of long bike rides around the extensive property, encountering all types of animals – giraffes, gemsboks, springboks, bat-eared foxes, warthogs, mongoose, etc – really a...

We stayed 2 nights at Marrick and had such a lovely time. It included the best night drive we have ever done - we saw black footed cat, aardvark, bat-eared foxes, aadwoolfs, porcupines, gerbils, spring hares, barn owls & a marsh owl. Can't wait for next time!! Richard and Inger from Hobart, Tasmania

Marrick is run by a small passionate team. The owner, Trevor, grew up on the farm and his love and passion for the veld and the wildlife are infectious. We were told we were almost 100% sure to see an Aardvark and we did! Our night drive all includes meerkat, hedgehog, Aardwolf, African Wild Cat and many more. The food... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Marrick at the start of a 2 week trip, as we'd read good reports about the night drives. We were certainly not disappointed! The farm itself provided very comfortable accommodation - we were in the Honeymoon Suite! Hubre was an excellent host and provided very tasty and filling food each night, as well as... More

My wife and I drove all the way to Marrick near Kimberley because a friend had told me that this is the place to go to if I wanted to see aardvark. And I did. So the two of us made the night drive with the father and son team on a chilly August night - and it was brilliant.... More

Marrick Safari has become a favorite of serious mammal watchers and naturalists, and for good reason. This lodge is set amidst a nice expanse of great habitat for game and nocturnal wildlife. You can arrange night safaris to see some of Africa's most difficult-to-spot critters, and the father/son team of Ben and Johnnyboy September are skilled guides to make sure... More

We stayed at Marricks for a couple of nights during a month long trip around South Africa. The night drives in particular were a highlight; lots of animals including Aardvarks each night, Aarwolves, Black-footed Cat (one night), Porcupines, Hedgehogs and more. The guys who run the drives are very, very skilled. The place has a lot of character and the... More

A delightful place to visit and the most amazing night drives. We stayed for two nights high spots being 5 Aardvarks in 90 minutes, Aardwolf and many other great mammals such as Bat-eared Foxes. Highly recommended.
