Marakele National Park - includes Marakele Ltd (private, no fence between)- About 90 000 ha, no lion. Stunning views, 600 breeding pairs of Lapped faced Vultures. Most game especially the elephants are found in the sweetveld of Marakele Ltd. The proposed dropping of fences between Marakele and Welgevonden has been put on hold due to the correct belief that Welgevondens' game will also move away to the sweetveld.
