With its earthy plastered walls, dry packed stone work and rough wooden beams, Madikwe Safari Lodge appears to grow out of the rust-red African setting like a gigantic termite mound.

Offering a commanding view of the game-rich plains, each room at this Madikwe Family Friendly Lodge overlooks the majestic panorama of the Dwarsberg Hills, as well as the Marico River, a green ribbon cutting through the landscape.

Both splendid and serene, yet as warm and approachable as an African sunset, Madikwe Safari Lodge offers an intimate bush experience with a humorous twist.

Rooms & Suites:

Take sanctuary among natural textures and rich materials in spacious suites with circular fireplaces. Glass doors blur boundaries between inside and out, and your private sitting area is the perfect vantage point for an afternoon spent gazing at the bush.

Watch elephant, giraffe and warthog from the depths of your deep, copper-plated bathtub, which opens out onto a private deck, or indulge in a cool splash in the strategically placed plunge pool.

Take your shower indoors or out, with only the whisper of the wind and maybe a curious yellow hornbill for company.

Food & Wine:

Traditional Southern African cuisine is complimented by a selection of world-class local wines when dining at the renouned Madikwe Safari Lodge.


Twice daily game drives - explore a network of tracks that leads through the reserve's various habitats on early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives accompanied by a ranger. The rangers have a deep knowledge of the local wildlife and their habits, and will do their best to cater for guests' specific interests.

Track the endangered wild dog or the rarely seen brown hyena. Some of these secretive animals have become accustomed to game drive vehicles and provide regular sightings. Late afternoon game drives often encounter wildlife around the many dams on the reserve.

The acacia savanna of Madikwe attracts bushbabies, which can often be spotted leaping from branch to branch on night drives.

  • To be honest, going on a game driving and getting the chance to see African Wilddogs is not a everyday occurrence, in fact this a rare experience no matter where you are. This is where the Madikwe comes into play, although it is never a guarantee that one will see them, Madikwe does offer one of the better chances.

  • All photos and pictures have been taken from a safari vehicle whilst staying at numerous lodges within the game Reserve itself. The Madikwe is truely a wildlife destination that can compete with the very best that Southern Africa has to offer and to top it all off the Reserve is "family Friendly" and "Malaria Free".

  • Over the course of the last few years we have had to opportunity to visit this amazing game reserve in the North west region of South Africa. One of the many striking features of the Madikwe Reserve are her vistas (other than of course her birdlife and wildlife), different to anything else that South Africa has to offer.

  • If there is one thing that the Madikwe Game Reserve has plenty of, and that is birds. As many as 360 species of these little fellows have been spotted in the Game Reserve to date, and that is a number that is spectacular no matter how you look at it. Looking for birds, then seriously consider the Madikwe.
