Mateya Safari Lodge
Mateya Safari Lodge lies on the rocky outcrops of Gabbro Hills in the Madikwe Game Reserve. It’s designed for the discerning traveler offering the very highest standards of service. This is possible because Mateya Safari Lodge is an intimate lodge with only 5 suites.
Mateya Lodge has five individually designed luxury air-conditioned thatched suites. The suites were designed to be in a radial configuration around one of the hills so as to blend in with the natural surroundings as much as possible. Here you can relax in your private rim-flow pool at your suite and enjoy spectacular views over the surrounding plains and the waterhole. The original African artworks in each suite seem to reflect the very essence of the Madikwe Reserve – a beautiful, vital, and untamed stretch of bush.
Activities at Mateya Safari Lodge
Custom built 4×4 game drive vehicles give you the opportunity to view the Madikwe area over vast distances, or take a guided bush walk where Mateya’s specialist rangers and trackers take you to experience game and wildlife up close. After an adventurous day of game viewing by foot or vehicle take some well deserved time out at Mateya’s Wellness Centre. The wellness centre facilities include a well equipped cardiovascular gym, a Jacuzzi, body and facial treatments. An ideal end to any safari filled day.
After pampering a dining experience awaits you under the African skies. Enjoy an open air roaring fire where a delicious South African dinner is prepared. Dining is also available in the Wine Cellar for a more personal and intimate dining experience.
