Mateya Safari Lodge honors the legend of Zimbabwean Queen Mateya, who settled in this area after her epic journey to save her people from drought. 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 Dwarsberg mountain range forms the reserve’s southern boundary, and the Tweedepoort Escarpment divides it north from south. To give ten very special guests unrivaled luxury and unforgettable views of the vast plains, this exclusive lodge offers just five individually designed suites.
