We went there Feb. 24/25, 2012 and really enjoyed the Luxury Tent Camp. It is a "must try" because of the beautiful
scenery of the Waterburg Mtns and fun being on the only watering hole, watching animals come in to drink. The little
monkeys "swinging through" the camp, make it perfect for picture taking!
We enjoyed our days driving and looking, but the park is not well stocked with any Big 5 animals. Luckily we were at Pilansburg the week before and saw an abundance of animals including 4 of the Big 5, but that also was a guided tour, whereas in Marakele, we were on our own which was also very fun!
Both parks offered their own experience, but the Luxury Tent Accomodation is the draw at Marakele, for sure!
