Mateya Safari Lodge
The Mateya Safari Lodge is situated in the spectacular 75,000-hectare Malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. The reserve is characterised by extensive plains which slope in a north-easterly and easterly direction towards the Marico River. The Dwarsberg Mountain Range forms the reserve’s southern boundary and the Tweedepoort Escarpment forms the dividing line between the reserve’s northern and southern sections, rising to 1328m at Tshwene-Tshwene.
The Madikwe Reserve is located in a Malaria-free area of the North-West Province, a mere three and a half hours drive from Johannesburg and 120km from Sun City. The Madikwe Reserve has its own airstrip and regular SA Airlink flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Sun City and then onto the lodge which makes Mateya easily accessible. Arrangements can be made for direct, chartered flights, landing at the Madikwe Reserve airstrip, which is a short 10-minute drive from the main lodge.
Built in an ecologically sensitive manner with materials found in the Madikwe Game Reserve, the lodge resides in extensive plains that slope toward the Marico River. The Lodge accommodations consist 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, savouring the rare pleasure of their very own secluded slice of Africa.
Mateya Safari Lodge reveals to you a world rich in ecological and cultural history, opening your mind to a truly unique and fascinating safari experience.
