Camping in the Waterberg

Matamba offers a unique camping experience. Inspired by a lifetime of travelling in Africa, Sue and Alan Jarman have built two exclusive upmarket bush campsites, for the discerning bush lover.


·       Mara's Camp situated in the middle of the farm is a private camp for one party only.  This beautiful campsite in a thick woodland, with huge        wild Syringa trees,  is very reminiscent of Zimbabwe or Zambia.


·       Tau Camp spread over four hectares has four individual campsites.  Drongo, Hornbill, Francolin and Oriole.  These sites are about 200

         meters apart.  Set in a beautiful open woodland this is a very tranquil, peaceful camp.


Both camps have rustic, but superb facilities, they are unfenced allowing the game to wander freely through, Wake up to find a herd of Eland or Sable grazing between your tent and the bathroom, or watch the Giraffe amble past while sipping sundowners.
