Mateya Safari Lodge

Overview


Mateya Safari Lodge, located in the spectacular 75 000-hectare Madikwe Game Reserve, is among the most prestigious game lodges of its kind, and certainly one of the most exclusive in Southern Africa. The reserve is home to the Super 7 (lion, buffalo, cheetah, elephant, leopard, black and white rhino, and wild dog), plains game and over 350 species of birds.

Accompanied by experienced rangers and trackers, guests can venture on game drives in custom-built 4x4 vehicles, or track on guided walking safaris through the reserve. Each adventure will be planned around guests’ specific interests, with a maximum of four guests per vehicle. This ensures the fulfilment of their ideal safari experience.

The lodge accommodates 10 guests in five individually designed, air-conditioned luxury suites, beautifully blended with their natural surroundings. Each suite offers en-suite bathrooms with an open-air shower and a private pool deck. Guests can enjoy the luxury of total privacy, savouring the wonderful sights and sounds of their own secluded slice of Africa.

Mateya offers a bush boardroom with Internet facilities, a curio boutique, gym and health spa. Guests can relax in the lounge, elevated deck areas and African interest library, while admiring a superb collection of African art.

Whether soaking up the afternoon haze from their private rim-flow pool deck, or taking their place at the spectacular Fire Core dining venue for an evening of fine cuisine, accompanied by wines selected from the 8 000-bottle wine cellar, each and every feature of our guests’ visit will leave them with the indelible pleasure of having indulged in a memorable experience.

From our guests


"We were reborn at Mateya. My husband and I celebrated six years of life following my heart transplant with a trip to the beautiful, quiet Madikwe Game Reserve and are so glad that we chose to stay at Mateya Lodge. It is beyond luxurious: it is tasteful, warm, relaxed, and sincere. The food is fabulous."
