Overview
With over 3000 hectares of pristine African savannah veld at your disposal, Marrick Safari has plenty to offer in terms of excitement, adventure, sporting activities or more relaxing pursuits. At Marrick, there is indeed something for everybody.<br /><br />We have a variety of accommodation to choose from; there is our Guest House which is the original residence on the Marrick farmstead and it has been meticulously restored to reflect the elegant ambience of its earlier years. The house has five bedrooms sleeping 10 people in single or double beds. We have a honeymoon suite situated within the guest house; the room has a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom and is ideally suited to that romantic weekend away.<br /><br />There is the Impala Cottage for those who prefer a more functional yet comfortable lodging. The cottage is the ideal accommodation for you and your family or friends to experience Marrick's bounty from the convenient confines of your own private lapa. There are five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a fully equipped open-plan kitchen.<br /><br />The Hunters Cottage can accommodate up to six guests in two air-conditioned bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Enclosed by a reed boma, Hunters Cottage provides the seclusion you need for your own private party or family function. There is the Guinea Fowl Cottage which is similar to Impala Cottage in terms of style and functionality, but without the lapa. Guinea Fowl Cottage offers three bedrooms, three bathrooms and an open-plan kitchen.<br /><br />Lastly there is our Ribbok Campsite situated deep in the heart of Marrick's 3000 hectare expanse, sheltered beneath the shade of a rocky koppie lies the most rustic and basic of Marrick's accommodation options. Providing exquisite panoramic views over the Flamingo Pan and much of the reserve itself, Ribbok Campsite consists of six two-man tents and is equipped with an outdoor kitchen, a braai area and very rudimentary shower facilities.

"Disappointed with our stay at Marrick. We booked for the guesthouse but were given one of the cottages to stay in. In need of some refurbishment, bath and shower were dirty and needed a clean before using them. Little or no housekeeping, no fresh towels delivered. The one good thing about our stay was the night drive, informative guides and good wildlife. However this was over priced at 2000 Rand. Especially for a family of 3 like we were. OK if you are group that can share the cost. Would definitely have done more wildlife drives if the pricing was better, They price themselves out of the market for small families. One other point, we were booked for the guesthouse we assumed it would be B&B, however we had to order breakfast, which we did. First morning breakfast was fine but the second morning we went down for breakfast and no breakfast available. Ended up going into Kimberley for breakfast which turned out to be far cheaper. There was one more party staying at Marrick same time as us and it was apparent that this party were far more important guests than us."

"Probably best place to see otherwise highly elusive nocturnal species as Aardvark, aardwolf and black-footed cat.Nightdrives at Marrick reveal how diverse the wildlife can be in the Karoo.Friendly owners and staff.Great birding at Marrick and surrounding area."
"Worth it"

"Quiet and peaceful but very hot time of year. Swimming pool offered great relief and having air cons in rooms made it alot more comfortable. Evening game drive well worth it."
