Framed by dense bush forests that peter out into distant grassland and a meandering river, Makanyane Safari Lodge offers superb game-viewing from the comfort of its intimate 8-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.
