Our stay at Matamba was a wonderful exposure to the South Africa Bushveld - . The camping sites are beautifully located and the facilities are perfect for the environment. We would highly recommend this to all nature lovers.

We loved every part of our experience at Matamba. The facilities are amazing, and totally catered for campers. We spent our 2 year anniversary here and couldn't have asked for a better weekend away. We even got a complimentary bottle of champagne to enjoy as the sun was setting.

Great facilities. Well maintained. Real bush feeling so close to Gauteng. Did a stopover on 16 December 2014 on our way to Botswana. Owners passionately involved with guests. Highly recommended.

Arrived on Friday the 31st of October to a warm welcome from Alan's staff members and ready to assist us with all that was needed. Had a lovely three day stay. Ablutions (both under roof and open to the skies) spotless. Sites are kept extremely clean at all times. Didn't see much of the game but still good just to sit in the bush and listen to all the unfamiliar sounds.
