Matingwe Lodge

Matingwe Lodge is situated near Vaalwater in Limpopo. The thatch-roofed lodge and free-standing rooms are surrounded by indigenous garden. Bird life is plentiful! Sable antelope, and other plains game, roam the grounds. It is quite safe to walk the hiking trails on the reserve.

The plush, 4-star graded rooms, decorated to suit the South African safari setting, accommodate couples and families. While there will be no need for screens, a cosy, communal loft lounging space in the lodge is fitted with a TV.

Meals are served in the restaurant in the lodge. Enjoy a sunny breakfast in the lapa overlooking the bushveld and dine by candlelight as you settle in for dinner later in the day. The bar is fully stocked, and the temperature-controlled cellar holds some of the best wines South Arica has to offer. Outdoors, a large firepit provides the setting for long, lazy conversations and the customary South African braai!

In Summer, the rock pool and deck are popular with guests. In Winter, find a cosy nook in the living area, where a fire is always ablaze.

Matingwe borders the larger Welgevonden Game Reserve, where the Big 5 roam the ultra-protected land. Guests are treated to guided Big 5 game drives in Welgevonden. Join an early morning or late afternoon drive, or both! You will not be disappointed by the sightings.
