Situated on the top of a hill on the eastern boundary of the hunting concession is the Matetsi Unit 3 camp. The camp overlooks a large open grassland with a stunning dam. This converted old farmhouse comfortably sleeps 8 clients, all in luxury en suite rooms. Although the bones of the camp are steeped in history, it has all the modern-day furnishings, including a crystal clear swimming pool, wifi, satellite t.v and comfortable hand crafted beds.



This landscape has a diverse range of terrain. These include vast tracts of wide-open grasslands, rocky outcrops, and sandy forests, to name a few. Matetsi Unit 3 plays home to numerous animal species including four of the big five: lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo. This well-managed eco-system has natural seasonal rivers and three large dams, the biggest of which (Guyu) is home to a resident pod of hippo. During the dry season the constant pumping of water aids in supplying this precious resource to numerous waterholes throughout the property. These waterholes play a vital role in providing the resident plains game species, predators, elephants and often big herds of buffalo (sometimes numbering in the hundreds) a place to quench their thirst in the dry months.



The climate in Matetsi falls under the umbrella of the “Southern Tropical belt” and is considered mild. There are two very distinct seasons, they are classified as the “wet” and “dry” seasons. The dry season usually begins in May and runs through autumn, winter and spring before ending in October. The wet/green season begins in middle of November, where the rainfall consistently increases making hunting more difficult. Temperatures in the dry season usually vary between 40°F in the mornings and evenings and peaking at 85°F during mid-day, with temperatures in the wet season peaking at around 100°F
