At the heart of the spectacular malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, the five-star owner-run Etali Safari Lodge is an exclusive, intimate haven, where body and soul are rejuvenated in surroundings created by people who understand luxury.
Built in harmony with nature, Etali is a small, eight suite, private safari lodge with tasteful minimalist accommodation. Each suite has its own private heated plunge pool and outside shower, all on a large private deck. You'll probably spot a few glances from roaming giraffe, elephants and even lions from the deck.
Go on game drives with highly skilled field guides with an excellent knowledge of the bush and see the Big 5 and more - such as the endangered wild dog. Go walking in Big 5 territories, birding and on specialised photographic safaris. Take time to rejuvenate your body and soul in the top class Wellness Centre or spoil yourself to a massage on your own sundeck. Treatments here include a reflexology walkway of rock, sand and soothing running water, aromatherapy massages, Indian head massage, hot-stone therapy, bodywraps, facials, a sauna and mini-gym facilities. What more could you ask for?
Etali is available for functions such as weddings and corporate events. Wedding ceremonies can be arranged in the bush within the reserve, with nature as witness.
