We spent a week at Matomo Safari Lodge and really enjoyed it. Matomo is located at a very special spot: It’s built directly into the cliff. From the outdoor area as well as from the lounge, the dining room and the bedrooms we had a stunning view into the river valley and watched elephants and all sorts of other animals gathering and bathing. The lodge with its modern African-inspired decor has everything you need for a pleasant and relaxing stay.

The safaris were truly lifetime experiences. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting insights. We saw elephants, buffaloes, lions, rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes, a chameleon, zebras and many other animals from close proximity.

Also, Corinne and Stéphane were super friendly hosts who did everything to make sure we enjoy our stay. We had a fantastic and exciting time at Matomo and can only recommend it.

Wow! An unbelievable and unique experience! The lodge is incredible, with views that take your breath away. The staff are amazing, so friendly and accommodating - truly making all of us feel like family. We were so lucky to have some amazing sightings - cheetah, black rhino, elephant, civet, buffalo…and a lion kill!! I can say one thing for sure - we’ll be back!!! Thank-you!

Un lodge à couper le souffle! Un grand merci aux propriétaires, Corinne et Stéphane, pour nous avoir fait rêver pendant une semaine !
La décoration est faite avec beaucoup de goûts par Corinne. La vue est juste extraordinaire depuis toutes les pièces: elle domine une rivière où les animaux viennent y boire.
Toutes les chambres sont spacieuses, confortables et une excellente literie.
Notre guide Simon est un grand passionné de la réserve. Très gentil et à notre écoute à chaque sortie dans le bush. Éléphants, guépards, rhinocéros, lions, buffles, girafes… tous au rdv !
C’est clair c’est une adresse où revenir!

Hi Claudia, Yes, they are included. During your stay, you will have a private vehicle with an accredited field guide at your entire disposal which means you can schedulde your own time of departure and length of your safari according to your desire. We are an exclusive use lodge so we won't share the vehicle with other guests. All day birding or cats'exploring ? No problem, you can have it all ;-)
