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.

My ladies and I enjoyed ourselves. We quit disappointed with the size of the pool,  but all the resources were there, such as pots, plates, stove and the breakfast was wonderful. The hosts were wonderful too. It was a great quiet weekend away from home.

Not a place to be visited again.  On arrival the first thing the owner said after greeting was "you better pay the balance now as I don't and won't have time to be chasing you around tomorrow". It was clear after seeing the room why he insisted on receiving paying before we had stepped into the room.  Cob webs lined the thatch room and spiders regularly strolled the wall.  The breakfast offered is sub standard even for a 3 star hotel.  Re: staff and customer service.  The less said the better.

We had a lovely relaxing weekend away! Hospitality was warm and welcoming. The rooms are well appointed and have everything you need to make the stay comfortable. We will definitely be back.

I so enjoyed my stay at Matlapa Lodge and would do it again any day. The cosy chalets with clean linen were the best. I loved the intimacy of the chalets lapas which allow for an intimate braai with friends.I also enjoyed the breakfast and the hospitality of the staff. Rika is great and we found his husband to be great too. The Chinese Chow dogs are adorable and give Matlapa Lodge a unique and homely feeling.For a quiet weekend away with friends or family, Matlapa is your best bet in Magaliesburg.Monako & Friends
