Limpopo Hunting Safaris

Matla Mamba Safaris

Matla Mamba Safaris is a private wildlife reserve in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, near the Waterberg Mountain range between Vaalwater, Lephalale, and Thabazimbi. We provide unforgettable Limpopo hunting safaris and one-of-a-kind lodging, perfect for family vacations or group getaways.

Matla Mamba is a malaria-free location in the middle of the Bushveld, bordering the Marakele National Park for more than 27 kilometers.

Live the African experience on Matla Mamba’s 10 000 hectares of unspoiled wilderness, which is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including three of the Big Five, leopard, and disease-free buffalo. The Mamba and Matlabas Rivers run through the reserve, giving it its name. Other game species seen on an open-vehicle game drive include sable, gemsbuck, eland, giraffe, hartebeest, roan, oryx, zebra, kudu, bushbuck, nyala, and many more.

Our luxurious resort on the banks of the beautiful Mamba River allows you to view the animals. Our lodge features six comfortable thatched en-suite chalets, a swimming pool, a covered lapa area, a central lodge area, and an open boma with a double storey thatched lounge/pub/dining area overlooking a large dam frequented by fish eagles and all species of Bushveld kingfishers, including the giant kingfisher.

If you want to fly in, there is a 1.5km dirt airstrip on the reserve. This landing strip can accommodate small and medium-sized aircraft.

A sundowner river cruise in a canoe on the Mamba River is the cherry on top of any visit.


On the banks of the scenic Mamba River, Matla Mamba Safaris provides high-end lodging options for visitors to Limpopo. Take in the breathtaking sights of the South African Bushveld up close and personal.

Each of the twenty-four tents in this thatched camp has a stunning view of the surrounding dam. Here’s who we have in camp:

Amenities including a loft DSTv room, fully-equipped kitchen, under-cover play area with table tennis, and a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a huge covered terrace.

Sundowners are frequently enjoyed in the outdoor braai boma, which features a two-story bar and an outdoor dining/conference area with breathtaking views of the dam.

There are six separate cottages, each with its own private garden and a view of the native trees and grass. Two of the cabins feature three beds, while the other four can accommodate four guests comfortably (two beds downstairs and two beds upstairs). The picture is finished with a tennis court and a pool.
