  • 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.
  • Madikwe Bird Photos

  • 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.
