Situated between two rolling hills, Madikwe Safari Lodge lies in the heart of the richly diverse and malaria-free 76 000-hectare Madikwe Game Reserve – one of South Africa’s biggest wildlife sanctuaries. It overlooks game-filled plains, with the majestic Marico River cutting a winding green swathe through the landscape. The lodge consists of three exclusive, intimate camps with a simple yet sophisticated Madikwe style.
The guest suites in this lodge feature intimate sitting areas and outdoor seating on the expansive covered decks leading to inviting plunge pools. There are luxurious bedrooms with circular fireplaces, spacious dressing areas with personal bars, and bathrooms with twin hand basins, large bathtubs, indoor and outdoor showers and private toilets. There are several fireplaces both inside and out with pizza ovens for a fun dining experience. Enjoy down time in the well-stocked libraries and starlit dinners in the nearby boma. Madikwe Safari Lodge is ideal for family safaris and is in a malaria-free area.
Madikwe not only has the Big Five but also cheetah and wild dog. On your morning or afternoon game drives you can look forward to sightings of a variety of wildlife, including mountain reedbuck, oryx, sable, eland and zebra, and up to 350 species of birds. Game drives are in open game viewing vehicles led by trained rangers delivering a world class interpretative experience of the bush.
