Marakele, at the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, is a scenic destination in remote wilderness. The park is home to the Big Five, but sightings are hit-and-miss. Big cats aren't encountered very often, but white rhino is seen regularly. A highlight is the vulture viewpoint where Cape vulture can be spotted. The park is divided into two sections: the first contains easy-to-drive gravel roads but not many animals; the second is far wilder but also richer in wildlife.
