Matatiele town is situated in the most westerly part of southern KwaZulu-Natal. A notable feature of the landscape is the wide valley, the Cedarville Flats. Matatiele Commonage lies due south of Matatiele town, and abuts directly onto it. Most of the site is pure grassland. Rudd's Lark Heteromirafra ruddi occurs at the site.
