Madikwe Safari Lodge

Located in the central-eastern region of Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa in an area well known for its superior game viewing, Madikwe Safari Lodge is cradled between rolling hills, overlooking game-filled plains intersected by the Marico River and framed by the Dwarsberg Hills. The family-owned lodge consists of three self-contained camps, providing intimate accommodation in 20 luxury suites.
Guests at Madikwe Safari Lodge have a choice to stay together as a group of family and friends, or to have a more private bush experience as a couple in Lelapa Lodge, Dithaba Lodge and Kopano Lodge.
Each suite at this Madikwe accommodation is strikingly organic in design and comprises a comfortable sitting area, romantic circular fireplace in the bedroom and spacious dressing area with personal bar. The spacious en-suite bathroom boasts a large bathtub, and indoor and outdoor showers. French doors open onto a wooden deck leading to an inviting private plunge pool. The focal areas feature a series of intimate sitting areas and shaded outdoor seating on the expansive covered decks. There are indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a covered outdoor living room offering beanbags and cushions for casual bonhomie. Living areas are designed to be cool in summer and warm in winter and the boma lends the perfect ambiance for evocative dinners around a blazing fire.
Madikwe’s game viewing is of a very high standard, aided by the fact that all guides are in radio contact with one another, and provides regular sightings of zebra, Impala, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, white rhino, lion, wild dog, elephant, white rhino, brown hyena, and spotted hyena.
