We really enjoyed our stay. We were received with warm and open hearts. The food was excellent and the game drives very informative and enjoyable. Thank you to the hosts and Nadia, it was a stay we will always remember.

We had a great experience at Mattanu Private Game Reserve. The weekend away was our first holiday after five, long, months of the lock-down, so it was a relief that the stay at Mattanu was all that we expected and more. We specifically enjoyed the sunset game drive; sumptuous dinner; and interacting with Dr Kriek, who founded Mattanu, and his son and the reserve's Director of Marketing, Jacques Kriek (both are salt of the earth people). For accommodation, we had chosen a luxury safari tent, which turned out to be the ultimate glamping experience. We will most definitely consider another stay at Mattanu, the next time we find ourselves in the Northern Cape.
