Marataba Conservation Safari

Tour Details
Marataba Conservation Safari

An experience which extends way beyond your average safari as guests physically take part in the immobilization and DNA sampling of a rhino in Marataba.

Guests joining us for this unique safari experience will be funding both the rhino immobilization and DNA sampling as well as donating a camera trap to the Marataba team – all of this in addition to the standard conservation fees which keep both of these reserves functioning.

As a contractual National Park, Marataba is one of South Africa’s most innovative conservation models. From the vision of an iconic president to the unique public-private partnership that exists today, the focus is firmly on protecting the area’s diverse flora and fauna through modern and hands-on conservation practices.
