Why stay here?
Madikwe Game Reserve is a 75 000 hectare malaria-free reserve located northwest of Johannesburg (an easy four hour drive) along the Botswana border. It didn’t take much to be enamoured by Madikwe. Everything about this place is vast – its landscapes, its heavens, its wildlife. This is rugged Africa, and then some! The rich and undulating landscape is punctuated by enormous volcanic intrusions (known as Inselbergs) and the unique topography reveals astonishing wildlife sightings. Madikwe’s animal population includes lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, spotted hyena, giraffe, antelope and the endangered Cape hunting dog. In excess of 300 resident and migrant bird species tint the ample skies. Madikwe Safari Lodge offers three luxury lodges, each with its own appeal. The right lodge for you will depend on whether you are travelling with the family, with a group of friends or on your own, and on your personality. Do you prefer a smaller and more intimate lodge environment, or a more social atmosphere in the company of other guests from around the world?Information
