One of the beautiful things about South Africa is the diversity. I’ve slept in a bush treehouse one night, then been whale watching on the beach with a wild picnic the next.

Stay at Mateya Safari Lodge

Mateya Safari Lodge is luxury accommodation at its best. Situated in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve this lodge oozes comfort and elegance as it melts into the untamed wild of the South African bush.

Hosting a maximum of just 10 guests, Mateya Safari Lodge has five exclusive suites that are arranged around one of the Gabbro Hills with uninterrupted views of the waterhole and surrounding plains (which you can enjoy from the comfort of your private infinity pool). The suites also have large en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, a vast private deck area with sun loungers and are styled with beautifully unique African artwork.

The boutique nature of this lodge means that there will never be more than 4 people in any game drive vehicle unless you want there to be. The small numbers of each drive mean that

when you are observing the likes of the super 7 – buffalo, cheetah, elephant, lion, leopard, rhino (black and white) and wild dog – your view will be unobstructed. Mateya are also able to offer bush walks to guests over the age of 16 (although anyone over the age of 60 will need a written Doctor’s Bill of Health).

Mateya Safari Lodge is named after the legend of Queen Mateya and the beautiful story stands so prominently with the lodge ethos. Crafted from materials found locally, the lodge has a majestic African feel that makes it the most memorable experience.

– Mateya Safari Lodge unfortunately cannot host children under the age of nine unless the lodge is taken exclusively

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Luxury Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!

Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.

EXPERIENTIAL:

These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
