  • Description
  • Facilities
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.

25 Reviews on Matlapa Lodge

I had a great time with my husband at the lodge, its such a wonderful, peaceful get away place if one want to have some time to themselves.


12 May 2014

Had an amazing time! The hosts were friendly and the room very neat! Can't wait to go back!

Love the place. Everything was perfect including the breakfast. Love it and most definitely going back.

Overall we had a pleasant stay. The rooms and facilities are nicely decorated, the garden is lush and green and the owners and staff helpful and friendly. The breakfast was pretty standard but tasty. The enclosed outside shower is a winner! Minor niggles: The ceiling in the bathroom had serious mildew on it, which is maybe understandable after two weeks of solid rain, but it looks like no attempt was made to clean it. Also the really cheap hollow core bathroom door has seen better days and even if new would be out of character with the general standard of the buildings. Another Suggestion: While much of the quasi-antique furniture adds to the rustic atmosphere, some items of furniture look more like they come out of an 80s motel room and actually detract from what is otherwise a tastefully decorated "rustic" look.

Thanks to Gustav, Rika and all Staff at Matlapa! We had a wonderful weekend at the peaceful Matlapa Lodge. Just a little more than an hours drive out of JHB, it is a quick and easy breakaway spot to get some rest from the hustle and bustle of JHB.
