Mateya Safari Lodge
Mateya is designed for the discerning traveler, offering a graceful fusion of relaxed comfort in a beautiful setting. The lodge, located in the malaria-free Big Five Madikwe Reserve, caters for a maximum of 10 guests. As such, guests are assured exclusivity, privacy, and the very highest standards of personal care and attention at all times.
Nestled in the rocky outcrop of the Gabbro hills, the lodge, comprising dining, lounge, and relaxation areas, provides a high elevation, uninterrupted view of the reserve. The suites are arranged in a radial configuration around one of the hills, each with a private, rim-flow pool deck and natural window sala overlooking the waterhole and plains.
The emphasis at Mateya is on elegance; an atmosphere of comfort that in harmony with the natural surroundings reinvigorates the body, mind and spirit with an experience to be forever cherished. Close your eyes. Imagine your ideal safari destination. The scene is breathtakingly beautiful, the game is plentiful, and the comfort is unsurpassed. The artwork and literature capture the essence of an untamed spirit. Savored with either a glass of chilled Chardonnay or well-matured Merlot, the Mateya gallery and library offer the delight of sharing in the many breath-taking adventures of those to whose cannon of experience your Mateya safari will be the latest addition.
Whether soaking up the afternoon rays whilst walking through the reserve on a guided tracking safari, or sitting down to an evening of fine dining, each and every feature of your visit will leave you with the pleasure of having indulged in an unforgettable experience. Gazing out through the glass walls of the main dining room, or watching the cinders leap into the starry night from the bonfire in the open air fire core, you will feel that Mateya offers a sublime fusion of luxury carved into the edge of an untamed African wilderness. It is this balance which makes Mateya a truly remarkable destination.
The lodge consists of five individually designed, luxury air-conditioned thatched suites. Each suite blends with its natural surroundings and offers uninterrupted views of the waterhole and plains. Guests can enjoy a balance of sophistication and comfort, in total privacy and harmony with nature, savoring the rare pleasure of their very own secluded slice of Africa.
The ambience of a fresh and clear night is warmed by the heat from the custom-designed fireplace, and as you settle down with a mug of hot coffee to admire the myriad of stars speckling the sky, the whispering breeze utters magical words that speak of tomorrow’s promise.Get More Information
