Our Review of Mateya Safari Lodge:

Mateya Safari Lodge is a strikingly designed enclave offering majestic views from a rocky outcrop in the Madikwe Game Reserve, an hour by light aircraft northwest of Johannesburg. The lodge incorporates indigenous materials and comprises a glass-walled dining room, bar/lounge, library and wine cellar, and contains a vast collection of African art. Gourmet meals are served on the deck or by the fire pit. Five luxurious, air-conditioned thatched suites have sundecks with infinity pools and uninterrupted views of the waterhole and plains, fireplaces and mahogany furniture. Baths feature indoor showers, tubs with views, and open-air showers. Gym, Jacuzzi and spa treatments complement dawn and dusk game drives and bush walks. The reserve’s large mammal species include buffalo, cheetah, elephant, leopard, lion, black/white rhino and wild dog; also more than 350 bird species. No children under age 9 permitted at Mateya Safari Lodge.
