Mateya Safari Lodge
Reviewed 16 September 2005

Mateya Safari Lodge represents all that a small, exclusive safari experience should be. The lodge itself is beautiful containing an amazing collection of African artifacts and artwork everywhere you look. The suites (only 5 of them) are complete with every amenity you could possibly need or want. The most comfortable beds and devine linens. The outdoor shower is a must! You can even watch herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, etc., coming and going to the waterhole just off the end of your private plunge pool deck...the lions roaring at night was a huge thrill! The staff was always friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The chef is top-notch. The game drive vehicles are super comfortable. We loved our morning tea during our early drives. We loved our sundowners too for that matter...fantastic sunsets! The rangers were very knowledgeable and capable...in fact, we saw the Big 5 the very first full day we were there! However, we never felt as if we were in a Disney setting. It's the real deal. We've been to other lodges in South Africa, many very nice indeed, but Mateya has spoiled us for good! We will definitely return one day soon!
