Everything about this trip was excellent. The staff at the lodge were welcoming from the moment we arrived--greeting us with lemonade, sherry, hot cloths, etc. every time we got back to the lodge. There were many choices for food and they did a great job...More

We were in the same situation and decided to stay at Matla. Best decision ever. Staff is fabulous, rooms are so much better than at Tau and you still have a small water hole in front of the main building to watch animals. The staff is from Tau so very experienced and wonderful. The game drivers are awesome. I am trying to find a way to go back.

Good day, at the moment it is not that cold yet, so a jacket will be enough it is only in May - July that you would need warmer clothes. We also provide blankets on the landrovers should you still need some extra warmth.
