    Guests at Mateya Safari Lodge can enjoy game drives and walking safaris with experienced guides, or simply relax and be pampered at the lodge’s health spa on their malaria-free safari in South Africa.

    Accompanied by experienced rangers and trackers, guests on their malaria-free safari in South Africa, can venture on game drives in custom-built 4×4 vehicles, or track on guided walking safaris through the reserve. Each adventure will be planned around guests’ specific interests, with a maximum of 4 guests per vehicle. This ensures the fulfilment of their ideal safari experience.

    Allow the talented trackers to guide you on foot across the vast plains for an exhilarating and unhindered experience of the true wild. Each game drive transports only 4 privileged guests into the unspoilt wilderness, allowing for spacious comfort, the studied attention of experienced rangers and full flexibility in the guest’s choice of time, length and destination of adventures.

    Mateya game drives are the culmination of a luxuriously rare and unforgettable malaria-free safari in South Africa. In the wild of the African bush the mind is inspired, the body revived and the soul comes to life. Alternatively, you can enjoy the freedom of the African bush by slipping into the cool depths of your own swimming pool.

    Mateya Safari Lodge offers a bush boardroom with internet facilities, a curio boutique, gym and health spa. Guests can relax in the lounge, elevated deck areas and African interest library while admiring a superb collection of African art.
