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.

Absolutely no words to describe what a wonderful time we have had. This was our 3rd safari and was definitely the best. A big thank you to Dylan and Tom who made sure we saw so much. The attention to detail was phenomenal and the food superb.
We will be back
