Mattanu Private Game Reserve is located in the Northern Cape Province, the biggest, safest and Malaria free province in South-Africa, approximately 50Km north-west of the diamond digging city of Kimberley. Nestled in the shade of indigenous Camelthorn trees, this family owned and managed business offer unparalleled intimacy and seclusion in their luxury tents and is characterised by exuding warmth and effortless hospitality. The only reserve in South Africa where you can view breeding programs of Roan, Sable, Buffalo, Royal Oryx, Golden Oryx, Golden Gnu, Black Impala, Tsessebe and Livingstone Eland together on the same property. Dr Johan Kriek, a wildlife veterinarian and owner along with the rest of the family, has been in the wildlife industry since the early 1980s and their passion for conservation is infectious. The farm was bought in 1991 and developed as a breeding area for rare antelope species and it was only in 2006 that Mattanu opened its doors to the public as an eco-tourism destination.
Here you will savour uncompromising high standards of service, efficiency and personalised attention. Come and relax in the African Kalahari Bushveld Savannah amidst the Camel-thorn trees. Enjoy your evenings in our air-conditioned luxury restaurant and bar and experience true South-African cuisine. For the wine connoisseur, we also provide an extensive wine selection in our underground wine cellar. Relax at the pool after a hot day, be pampered by our therapists with some of our massage treatments or partake in any of our numerous activities at Mattanu or the surrounding area.
Game Reserves (especially in South Africa) are large areas of land set aside and protected for wild animals.
South Africa still has a wealth of wild animals. We also have a beautiful list of birds that you will find at most of our Game Reserves.
