Mateya Offers Up An Unforgettable Wildlife Experience, A Luxury Safari Lodge In The Madikwe
Mateya Safari Lodge is for the more discerning traveller who is looking for exclusivity, privacy and the very highest standards of personal attention.
Nestled in the rocky outcrop of the Gabbro Hills with the Dwarsberg Mountain Range in the distance, Mateya Safari Lodge has uninterrupted views out over the "Malaria Free" Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa.
From the minute you walk through those ancient Zanzibar Elephant Doors, one is in an art gallery like no other establishment in Africa. From sculptures to hanging works of art, every piece of work is spectacular; in fact, so overwhelming is the art that we forgot about the wildlife for quite some time.
A five-star property in the Madikwe that we at Uyaphi.com can highly recommend.
