My wife and I went on our 25th anniversary and what a beautiful place to go!!
The guides were fabulous and the wildlife that we saw was a bucket list thing to see.
I would highly recommend Mateya lodge to anyone!!
The food we were served was superb and the staff was so courteous and helpful.
We will definitely be returning ASAP.
I myself really enjoyed the private pool and had a dip daily.

We spent 3 nights over the holidays at Mateya and it was amazing. The art, the facilities, the hospitality and the guides were world class. Every wish was catered to and the safari views were breathtaking. I can’t say enough about our stay. I can’t wait to go back.

we were there for 3 nights and had wonderful game drives. we have seen black Rhino, lions, wild dogs, cheetah, buffalo and most of the wild game you can view in game reserves. this is my sixth time i am visiting game reserves in South Africa and second time in this lodge and i can say that this is the best place to go.
excellent rooms with view to water hole with lots of animals coming to drink, good food and great wine cellar. The African art collection is remarkable and worth exploring for its self which gives you the feeling of coming into a museum with all the rare artifacts.

Room tip: come in dry season when all the animals go to water holes and you can view them from the rooms.
