The setting is fantastic. We went as part of an intrepid tour. Greeted on arrival but then no significant welcome atmosphere from management. The staff otherwise were fantastic. Bitten lots by Mosquitos and then found out all the other rooms were provided with mosquito nets when we asked staff for a net they said they had no extra nets and... More

Matumi is a great place to stay if you are visiting Kruger National Park. The accommodation is excellent for a quiet bush setting. The staff are professional, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The meals are delicious and good South African food. Nellie, the owner, personally makes sure everything is ok. Thoroughly recommend Matumi.

Totally overhauled 2 yrs ago, this group of thatched roof bldgs was a true delight. Wonderful meals, clean & comfy rooms, hot water, A/C, huge pool & lanai, very reasonable drink prices, friendly staff, gardens, impalas jumping in & out of the property, Kruger Park pickups for mega animal viewing, and decent Wifi. Definitely worth considering.

We stayed at Matumi Lodge because the accommodation we were originally booked into was full. It was the best thing that could have happened to us. This lodge is much better than the 3 star rating it has, mainly because of the efficient and friendly service given by all the staff and the delicious food. The only problem is the... More

We brought alarge group here and there is very little to complain about, and those are more to do with bad cell coverage than the lodges accommodation.
