Taking luxury to a level you don't expect out in the South African bush, the Mateya Safari Lodge promises utter relaxation - and a few lion sightings, too.

Stop by the lounge to admire the stunning Robert Glen bronze sculpture.
When you hear "lodge," you probably think rustic. Well, think again. Mateya Safari Lodge provides the kind of luxury you'd expect at the very finest big city hotels in a stretch of gorgeous South African wilderness.

Each day you'll have a choice of safari options, from game drives in a custom-built 4x4 to a guided walking safari around the reserve. You're assured of seeing the "Super 7" - buffalo, cheetah, leopard, elephant, rhino, wild dog, and lion.

Mateya Safari Lodge hosts a maximum of 10 guests at any one time. That makes for an incredible level of personal attention. And the spaces, of course, are beautiful. Each room is decorated with unique African art, and the amenities are luxurious: marble baths, canopied beds, and air conditioning. Try your private infinity pool for a relaxing end to a day of animal spotting, and follow it up with dinner under the stars beside a roaring fire.

The Mateya Safari Lodge is in the midst of the spectacular (and malaria free) 75,000 hectare Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa. It's a three-hour drive from Johannesburg, on the north edge of the country.

The reserve has its own airstrip, with regular flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town, via Sun City. The airstrip is just 10 minutes from the lodge.
