A Fairytale Wedding at "The Matalatala Venue"

(Max 130 Guests)
Matalatala Venue

Imagine a retreat in the close proximity of the City of Tshwane but with the feel of the African Bushveld, close but yet just far enough where you can escape from the humdrum of city life.


This hidden gem of a private wildlife reserve, is near Dinokeng and Roodeplaat dam and allows you to just have a private function, enjoy your dream wedding, host a conference, enjoy nature with the amazing wildlife of Africa or if you wish, just relax and savour the ambiance and peace offered by MaTalaTala Venue.

MaTalaTala possesses an old world elegance rarely found in this day and age.

Thatch roof buildings consist of a lovely main building, a wedding chapel, Individual en suite rooms and an al fresco facility that graces the countryside.


An open-air Boma for up to 100 guests makes this venue ideal for “braais” or “potjiekos” and is particularly well supported by groups wanting to have a private function.


Accommodation is available in the form of 12 chalets and an executive suite within the main building. This makes it possible to break away for more than one day or evening, stay over after a meal or function and prolong the experience or just giving oneself some well deserved rest.


The “Al fresco” caters for up to 130 people and is ideal for large functions or weddings.

Should you wish your own, Ma Tala Tala can be viewed by arrangement and you are welcome to make use of external catering.



The wedding chapel can seat up to one hundred guests. Alternatively you may choose to have an outdoor wedding ceremony on the spacious lawns. 


Conferences and breakfast are held in the main building with tabled seating for up to 50 people, whilst Team building is easily catered for.


Each chalet accommodates 2 people as does the executive suite.

Ma Tala Tala further offers family accommodation through a 2 bedroom self contained family unit for up to 8 persons and an unequalled view over Dinokeng.


What nature has to offer truly does not have an equal. The spacious reserve has Kudu, Impala, Springbok, Giraffe, Nyala, Waterbuck, Zebra, Ostrich, Blue wildebeest, Blesbok and duiker roaming freely on this private wildlife reserve.


Our game drives are a must!


A dedicated 4x4 will take you on a tour of the reserve where you will find a natural watercourse of lakes hosting indigenous ducks and birdlife to the multitude of game within the Koppies and savannah plains.


Further unsurpassed views include sunsets from the Koppies where we take our guests to “The Lookout” being a beautiful spot with a panoramic view whilst enjoying a wonderful “sunset puza”.
