Feel like in Heaven in Matumi Lodge 11!
The large central living space has a fully equipped kitchen where you find things like a little collection of spices, vinegar and oil for your convenience. Heart of the bespoke dining area is a beautiful and unique Matumi table the lodge was named after. During the cooler evenings guests will appreciate to sit by the designer fireplace on the comfortable leather sofa or in a cosy rocking chair .
Frameless glass sliding doors connect the interior to the covered patio which offers an inviting lounge area and a dining table overlooking the pool and allowing a nice view onto the Sabie River.
A crocodile especially made by a local wood carver looks after your private swimming pool whilst you are having a little nap on the cushy sun loungers. It's quite common that zebras and impalas come to the garden to graze.
The patio's Chad-o-Chef gas braai is a good alternative to the open fireplace in the sheltered boma where you can sit and relax around the fire chatting about the day's adventures accompanied by a last sip of red wine or coffee to finish off your day.
And who knows …? You could be the one to spot the rare Pel's Fishing Owl or an elusive leopard strolling past!
Some animals come very close to the fence !
Your stay at Matumi
The staff at Elephant Point Gate is informed of your arrival and will introduce you into the particularities of the estate and Matumi Lodge. Please don't hesitate to contact the management for any queries during your stay.
Best place for your shopping is Hazyview which is a short 30 minutes drive away. In several supermarkets you will find everything your culinary heart desires. As many touristic points of interest are close by, this nice little town is a tourist magnet and therefore offers a good variety of nice cafés and restaurants guaranteed to attract you for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For further information about tours and activities in the surroundings please consult our individual Matumi folder in the lodge and the Infothek of this homepage.
Kruger's Skukuza Camp also offers a supermarket with good food variety. The prices are a bit higher there but after a full day safari in the park it's a good opportunity to shop your dinner.
