We had the perfect stay at Matimba. We were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble for the team. Breakfast was delicious and our bedroom perfect. Wish we could stay longer but we will certainly be back!

This is without doubt the most perfect place I have stayed in South Africa. It has a sublime setting being situated on the edge of a picturesque dam where you can happily spend hours on the desk watching crocodiles drift by and birds catching fish and listening to the hippos.
The rooms were beautifully appointed and I especially enjoyed the outside shower - a very unique feature!
But, by far the best feature of the lodge is the unparalleled hospitality. Daniella, the hostess, is warm and friendly and it was a real pleasure whiling away the time in conversation about Phalaborwa, the local communities and the Kruger Park.

The week spent here was exceptional in many ways.

Exceptional are the owners Daniela and Alberto: Daniela with her love and care for the people, Alberto with his passion for the wildlife.

Exceptional is the staff: Martin's fantastic dinners. Sharon, Shirley and Patience always attentive and pleasant.

I'm sure I will return soon to this beautiful place, where I felt instantly at home.

We stayed here for five days and had the best time ever. The location is wonderful, the service is excellent and there are a lot of outdoor activities organized by the owners of the lodge. They know the place very well and can introduce you both to the wild side of nature and to the local community. Daniela is a very friendly and open minded woman and you can really tell that she loves what she does. We can highly recommend this bush lodge.
