This is a follow-up to my previous post on my Safari to the Madikwe Game Reserve with a Madikwe Lodge Review, the second nights Lodge that we stayed at is called “Mateya Safari Lodge”. Luxury and complete and utter service from the minute one arrives to the minute departs, very much an old school kind of Safari Lodge with emphasis on space, artwork and ambiance.
Yes this is upmarket Lodge where prices are quite expensive but then again pay for what you get, And what you get here at Mateya Safari Lodge is privacy by the bucketloads. There are five suites each with private plunge pools and more room then you can swing a cat at, the bathrooms are a sight to behold there is marble Bath’s, sinks and indoor shower areas. Let’s not forget the artwork that hangs on the walls is of the finest that one can find, this is certainly an area that I could stay easily for three or four nights.
The only downside to this Lodge is the walk from the main Lodge to the individual suites, I am relatively fit but boy did I struggle to get up and down the stairs (I think it’s the smoking) but anyway that is what it is and just remember those stairs are steep and long. That my friends is really and truly the only downside of this Lodge.
The main area where the bar is and where you will eat hosts a library as well (Here I go again about artwork) as some of the finest African artwork I have ever come across outside of my art gallery, I am seriously not joking about this I could have Spent all day walking around and standing every aspect of this Lodge ( that is why said I could stay easily three or four days). This Madikwe Lodge Review is from a safari that I undertook around the end March 2012…..
