We were in South Africa and we wanted to see animals. We struck out at other National Parks in the area so we decided to try Marakele since it was only a 90 min drive from our home camp.
We also signed up for a private tour at the park. I highly recommend this private tour! We had a choice of early or late, when the animals are most active. We decided on the late tour which started at 4:00. It was only 170 rand per person so roughly $17 each for the three of us. Our tour guide was fantastic and he rode us into sections of the park that were off limits to the general public. We saw tons of animals and it was the dry season. This is a must visit park.
On a side note they have restrooms and a little store to purchase some snacks. Everything was super clean.
