Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of the world’s natural gems and for those who can afford the time we strongly recommend an excursion to the park. The Kruger is one of the world’s foremost national parks and the diversity of animal and plant life is astonishing.

Pilanesberg National Park

This National Park in the North West Province offers spectacular landscapes ranging around a central lake. Pilanesberg National Park, adjacent to Sun City, hosts a wide variety of southern Africa’s mammals, including the Big 5, on 55 000 hectares of pristine natural beauty.

Sun City Resort

Sun City is internationally renowned as South Africa’s premier holiday resort offering a multitude of attractions and activities to keep everyone occupied. With a combination of golf, game and gambling, as well as world class hotels, Sun City is the perfect place to spend a few days while on safari. Sun City lies adjacent to Pilanesberg National Park and is about a 2 – 3 hour drive from Matlabas Game Lodge.

Scuba diving

South Africa has some magnificent diving spots, and although diving conditions vary greatly, the sea life is spectacular. Most dive sites have reefs that cater to both novice and experienced divers. It is not uncommon to see bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales, whale sharks, loggerhead turtles, manta rays, ragged-tooth sharks, bull sharks and tiger sharks at many of the dive sites, in addition to the multitude of reef fishes, corals, nudibranchs and other sea creatures.

Fishing safaris

A variety of fishing trips can be organised. Fish in our local rivers, dams and streams or go on a quest for tiger fish or bass. Extended trips for saltwater fishing is also available.
