About Us

After having explored Africa for many years on their travels and safaris, Daniela (acclaimed professional photographer), her husband and qualified guide Alberto, and their son Robby moved to South Africa in 2006 to run an exclusive lodge in Phalaborwa.

Over the last decade numerous guests have been able to experience the family’s warm hospitality, informative safaris, cultural excursions and photographic workshops.


Daniela and Alberto have always dreamed of owning a truly luxury lodge in an idyllic bush setting. The new Matimba Bush Lodge is the culmination of this dream, and their passion for Africa and in delivering an unparalleled lodge experience awaits their valued guests. 

Together with the resident elephant, hippo and giraffe in their extensive wilderness gardens, they are ready to welcome you!
