Mateya Safari Lodge offers the most luxurious safari accommodation to be found in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. The lodge is a 20 minute drive from the Eastern Airstrip and is set on a hillside overlooking the veld. Mateya comprises five enormous suites set apart from each other for optimal privacy. Each room has a six foot wide four-poster bed, vast en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower, an extensive private deck area with sunloungers and plunge pool plus its own unique art work giving the room an authentic African feel.

The main lodge has magnificent decking with sumptuous sofas overlooking a waterhole where game can be seen drinking. Game drives are of the highest caliber as both rangers and trackers are extremely knowledgeable. Each drive has only four guests per open vehicle for fantastic game viewing. Mateya also offers bush walks, a rarity in the Madikwe.

During your stay here all extras are included such as laundry and minibar.
