Mateya Safari Lodge accommodations consist of five individually designed luxury air-conditioned thatched suites. Each suite blends with its natural surroundings and offers uninterrupted views of the waterhole and plains. Guests can enjoy a balance of sophistication and comfort, in total privacy and harmony with nature, savouring the rare pleasure of their very own secluded slice of Africa.
Indeed, the original African artworks that adorn each suite seem to reflect the very essence of the Madikwe Game Reserve – a beautiful, vital, and untamed stretch of bush. Reclining in hand-crafted mahogany furnishings, looking out as the Zebra lead the plains game to the waterhole, the immediacy of your experience could not be more vivid. Lying under the shade of your natural window sala, or immersing in the cool water of your rim-flow pool, each and every feature of your suite provides total privacy and comfort. Your en-suite bathroom complete with a secluded open-air shower invites you to luxuriate in a sensual setting that is designed to satisfy your ultimate enjoyment.
The ambience of a fresh and clear night is warmed by the heat from the custom-designed fireplace, and as you settle down to admire the myriad of stars speckling the sky, the whispering breeze utters magical words that speak of tomorrow’s promise.
From our guest’s
To everyone in Mateya lodge,
We had a wonderful time here! we enjoyed al of our safaris with Paul and Werner. On our first night drive we even saw a pangolin!
The food was fine as last time and everyone was so friendly. It was our family holiday.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The lodge and staff are so warm and welcoming. Kenneth and Sam gave us so many memorable experiences. Mateya is a very special place.
We are so glad to have spent four enjoyable days at this majestic place that capture the spirit of Africa. The art work is terrific and the lodge itself is a work of art.
Werner and Paul took us on memorable drives with wonderful sighs and Werner is so knowledgeable and informative-the best guide for any of our five safaris.
Dear Mateya Team,
After a long journey we are back in Germany. Now we look back at the past 14 days South Africa experience. It was absolutely awesome! The Mateya Safari Lodge is a beautiful place with breathtaking scenery and beautiful views.
Werner and Paul are very experienced, have given us lots of interesting information and are great as a team. The staff as well as the service staff were always attentive and courteous. We were allowed to enjoy the finest South African food and wine and lived in a luxury suite with every imaginable amenity.
We have felt very comfortable with you and had an awesome time at Mateya Safari Lodge with the African ambiance!!
It was great to meet you and we hope we'll see you again in the near future.
Thank you for everything,
