Jamala Madikwe


Luxury in the unspoilt African wilderness

Jamala Madikwe is a royal establishment that has set the standards for others to follow in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. A new addition to the 75,000 hectare game reserve, Jamala is a luxury lodge nestled under a grove of ancient Leadwood trees with panoramic vistas of rolling plains and a waterhole that abounds with wildlife. The lounge area invites you in with its comfortable couches, wooden antiques and African artefacts and roaring fire for those chilly winter nights. Catch a tan between game activities and wallow in the crystal clear swimming pool.

Accommodation is of the highest standard with five gargantuan villas that epitomise the lap of luxury in the heart of the bush. Each villa has a decadent double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and opens out onto a polished wooden deck that provides a bird's eye view of the wildlife and lay of the land. Throw in a private plunge pool, outdoor shower and sala - and you are certainly spoilt for choice! The restaurant is run by an awardwinning chef who will prepare cuisine to tantalise your tastebuds - either enjoyed in the elegant dining room or under the starlit sky.

Jamala Madikwe is the ideal base from which to explore the game reserve's 75,000 hectares of untamed and malaria-free wilderness. Home to the Magnificent Seven - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, cheetah and wild dog - as well as abundant plains game, mammals and over 360 species of bird, you are assured an unbeatable bush experience! Plus you have a luxury bush villa all to yourself and your loved ones. Each suite offers unrivalled luxury with a private plunge pool and deck with sweeping views of the bush. Spot game gathering at the busy waterhole with an ice-cold drink in hand, or head out on daily game drives and guided bush walks.
