Marvel at Madikwe & its Big 5 with Sanctuary Makanyane

Framed by dense bush forests that peter out into distant grassland and a meandering river, Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge offers superb game viewing from the comfort of its intimate eight-suite haven. Found in the illustrious Madikwe Game Reserve, near the border of Botswana, guests will have the opportunity to spot the Big 5, over 350 different bird species and a host of endangered predatory species. 

Since its inception in 1991, the 75,000ha reserve has painstakingly introduced a vast array of wildlife to the reserve who have since flourished in their environment. Madikwe’s unique landscape, encompassing an important transition point on the fringes of the Kalahari Desert, ensures a highly biodiverse safari experience. 

Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge is comprised of eight tastefully furnished Suites that include indoor/outdoor showers, underfloor heating in the bathroom, a freestanding bath, a fireplace and a private viewing deck. Guests can enjoy game drives, nature walks and specialised activities such as birding and tree safaris. The lodge also boasts a bush spa, gym, hides and the opportunity to enjoy a sleepout beneath the stars on a raised viewing deck.
