About Matumi

matumi Lodge 11 is situated on the banks of the mighty Sabie River which is one of the main streams  in the world-renowned Kruger National Park which supply  wild animals with water the whole year around.

The lodge is part of the Elephant Point Estate, a 290 ha private resort consisting of several mostly privately owned and individual lodges. There is no fence between the Estate and the Kruger Park.  For logistical reasons our guests use the official Kruger entry gates  for daily safaris.

We look forward to welcoming you as our guests!


Born out of love for nature and a good shot courage to adventure the  matumi Lodge 11 project started in September 2014. As owners we wanted to be part of the whole construction process. We didn't miss a single opportunity to be present on site, skipped being helped by interior designers and invested all our energy into the design of Matumi. It was our dream and our target to create an exclusive bush hideaway in harmony with nature, modern and cosy, filled with African flair and a feel of luxury. The architecture of the house matches perfectly with the surroundings. All used colours and materials for interior and exterior decoration and furniture are found in nature as well and show our respect for this particular place. Many pieces of furniture were specially designed for Matumi by local cabinet makers and are therefore unique.  Matumi Lodge is welcoming guests from the whole world since June 2017.

Let your dreams come true...

Hippos are playing in the Sabie River whilst Elephants quench their thirst after a hot and dusty day in the bush. A grazing herd of buffalo is wandering along the river bank, a young waterbuck decides to give them priority and runs away. A lonely rhino bull is slowly crossing your field of view on the other side of the river. The call of a fish eagle gliding above the water suddenly breaks the silence. The setting sun is dipping the landscape into a magical light. You are watching the scene from the wooden deck of your private swimming pool. It's sundowner time, the most precious moment of the day, just minutes before millions of  stars light up the breathtaking sky of the southern hemisphere ...
