My girlfriend and I stayed at the Matumi lodge for 3 nights. We received nothing but amazing service and hospitality. The staff were really helpful, the food had variety and was great. The rooms where also really nice and clean. Overall we had an amazing stay an would recommend to everyone.

We have recently returned from this lodge. Initially we were disappointed that the pool was still under construction and that we were the only guests, just 3 of us, so very quiet in the evenings, with no other guests to talk to. However, Rienie, who seemed to be managing just about everything, went out of her way to ensure that... More

To meet with my friends who were travelling already for 1 week in South Africa, we decided to go somewhere close to the Kruger National Park. The Matumi Game Lodge was a very good choice being close to the Orpen Gate. We loved our little "African" house, the pool, the atmosphere and the friendly and warm welcome of the owners... More

I can't speak highly enough of Matumi Lodge. I had a wonderful 3 night stay in October this year. My lodge was really wonderful. It was spacious, well equipped and beautifully furnished. Alida, her father and the staff made me very welcome. I was the only guest there during my stay and Alida would sit with me of an evening... More

Not arrived at nightfall (we had lost our way) Alida called us on cell phone and tried to instruct us; very precautionary! Beautiful grounds and a good room in a detached rondavel. Very nice staff and a good wine to acceptable price at the bar. However I found the room rate for the off season (winter) is comparatively high, but... More

Our family stayed at Matumi for two weeks and Alida and Pieter helped us to get to see 37 mammals, 100 different birds and a stunning countryside and some beautiful views. We went on many game drives in Kruger and in private game reserves. Not one was like the other. New guides and new places offered new experiences and new... More

This has got to be the worst accommodation we have ever had. On booking. com we should have been advised about the water situation. We couldn't even bath after a long journey. We were given a 200ml bottle of water to drink through the night, to brush our teeth and to make tea/coffee.Very expensive for what we got.
