The jungle assault course on the...

Perfect hotel, great breakfasts, very clean and big rooms, easy access into Phantasialand. Very nice interior design (Africa style), helpful staff, comfortable parking, fast check-in/out. We would prefer in-room wifi of course! Be aware of restautants capacity! It looks like there is more guests than places in restaurants. We did not book restaurant in advance - no chance to have...

Extremely convenient for visiting the park. Make sure you check the combo deals that include park tickets - they make the price much more attractive. The rooms are nice, clean and have great noise isolation - very important when people are screaming on a roller coaster just 100m from your window. The food in the restaurants is ok, but not...

We stay here for 1 night with our adult son and friend. Perfectly clean and big rooms. Nice bathroom with walk in shower, a hairdryer was also available. Park entrance and parking were a few minutes walking. Breakfast was excellent and rich. The only thing that bothers us was the very poor WiFi network. The hotel is providing WiFi in...

I could not fault the friendly helpful staff. Was looking forward to African buffet but sadly was closed on our visit and we had to go to ling bao for an overpriced buffet. Our room and hotel location were perfect.

Matamba provides an immersive experience setting the stage for a wonderful night on the African Savannah. The lobby, rooms, and halls feel authentic and provide a comfortable experience. Breakfast is fantastic and includes an omelet station. There is no direct entrance to the park, which means there is a bit of a walk every morning. The parking situation is tricky...

I love it so much I wish I could live in it. The only bad part is that it was someone else’s idea and not mine. I’m an Africa lover down to the core of my bones, and this place just makes perfect sense. It might seem a little kitsch at first, but when you look deeper you realize it’s...
