AFRICA WILD TRAVEL

​Not many people have heard of Roan antelope, let alone seen one.

These graceful creatures need a specialized habitat, and mix of grasses, to thrive. Marakele National Park, a malaria-free Park in South Africa, just 3 hours from Johannesburg, is home to these magnificent animals, as well as the usual culprits -lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino. You won’t see Roan in Kruger Park, and so think about Marakele as an all-in-one destination, with quicker access than Kruger as well.

Recommended accommodation? 

Griffons Bush Camp inside Marakele National Park. Contact them for self-catering and catered rates, via their website www.marakelelodge.co.za

And I hope you see some Roan !
