Stayed in 3 SANParks' rest camps during the winter holidays and this was the best one. Staff were great from the day I phoned to book (and had special requirements) 'till the day we left (in contrast to a very bad experience in the ADDO main camp shop). House is typical SANParks, but has everything you need while spending most of your time in the bush. The braai on the stoep is brilliant! Only small disadvantage of Matyholweni is that the southern part of the park is a bit bushy, so you have to drive a few km before you can really start game spotting, but then again you do get a much better bush feel an more silence than in the main camp.
If you only look at the accommodation you might think it's a bit overpriced, but remember you also get a whole nature reserve included! Get that WildCard - it's worth it!
