We kind of decided to stay at Mattanu as a last minute decision. From the time we rang up and booked, nothing was too much effort for anybody. We got there and we're welcomed by our guide and shown to our luxury tent where chocolate and champagne was waiting. After, we explored our gorgeous tent, we sat on the balcony... More

We wanted to see more than just the Big Hole, so decided to stay for a week at Mattanu (enjoyed it so much that we stayed a few days extra). What we received as guests was amazing: fantastic food; interactive game drives with some of the most... More

In February I made contact with Jacques from Mattanu and was pleasantly surprised by the level of service and professionalism in which they responded. I planned a surprise for my loved one and they even offered me a helicopter charter from the Kimberley Airport to their private reserve which included a helicopter game viewing experience I'll never forget. They dropped... More

They had a luxury tent available and we could truly not have wished for a better short stay. Jacques the Lodge... More
