Situated on a beautiful 400Ha game farm, two and a half hours from Jhb on the main road to Botswana. Matamba has two camping options.
Tau Camp, is built in a lovely open woodland, it has only three sites, Drongo, Hornbill and Francolin. These are about 200m apart so are very private. The facilities are rustic but superb, and consist of a thatch family bathroom with shower, flush toilet and Basin, and a separate toilet, there is also an outside shower and toilet built around large trees.
Mara's Camp is a private camp for one group only, in a thick woodland with beautiful big trees this is a very special camp. Two outside bathrooms are cleverly designed and blend into the surrounding bush. Both camps are unfenced and game is regularly in and around the campsites.
There are Four water holes, a thatch hide and a viewing deck three meters up in a tree.
Walking only is permitted, there are four marked trails but over 60 km of sandy tracks,however the wholefarm is open to be enjoyed.
There is a large selection of plains game at Matamba is very relaxed, over 300 birds and many beautiful trees and grasses. Matamba is ideal as a weekend break or a stopover on the way to Botswana
