About Matlapa Lodge

Matlapa Lodge is situated in Magaliesburg with the most beautiful natural surroundings on 60 hectares of pure countryside. Enjoy a magnificent view and the most beautiful sunsets. The thatched roofs and stone masonry add to the natural earth-like charm.

The accommodation consists of en-suite thatched chalets with old-fashioned baths, an outside shower and wooden decks. They are furnished with antique beds and cupboards that complete the romantic picture. Each chalet is well placed in a garden to secure privacy amongst the 70 species of indigenous trees and South African flowers in bloom throughout the year. Bird species are present in abundance.

A restaurant with a magnificent view provides a combined breakfast as well as a three-course meal on prior arrangement. Matlapa Lodge is a malaria free zone and we are situated 16 km from Maropeng with the Cradle of Humankind.

We stayed there over two nights and had a fantastic time. Rika and Gustav are both so friendly and the Lodge is beautiful. They went the extra mile to help us enjoy a romantic weekend away. We will definitely be coming back!

Our stay was very nice and the owners friendly and helpful. The thatched chalets are lovely and loved the outside shower. Will definitely recommend the lodge as a Base camp for all the activities offered in the Magaliesburg area
