They managed to find the animals regularly and...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.
