The Most Amazing Safari Lodges In The "Big Five" And Malaria-Free Madikwe Game Reserve
Madikwe Game Reserve offers up some of the finest lodges found in South Africa; this is our selection of what we at Uyaphi.com know to be the very best. Whether you are looking for a pure wildlife experience, something romantic or looking for a safe safari destination for the family, then the Madikwe has all your bases covered.
The Madikwe is a favourite amongst the team here at Uyaphi.com. For a good reason, the game reserve is spectacular, wildlife sightings are exceptional, and world-class lodges abound in terms of accommodation options.
The Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in South Africa and is situated in the North West Province. Madikwe boasts a diverse bush experience with a wide range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, black and white rhinoceros, African wild dog and Cape buffalo, to mention only a few. Over 350 species of bird species have been recorded in and around the game reserve.
The best time to visit the game reserve for game-viewing sightings is between May and October during the dry winter months. The wetter summer months are best for birding opportunities between December and March. We have visited the game reserve in both summer and winter and can say that we experienced excellent wildlife during both seasons.
The Madikwe Game Reserve is a malaria-free zone and is, therefore, a popular destination for families and those seeking a destination devoid of the disease.
All the Madikwe lodges within our portfolio are graded four and five stars and offer excellent service, luxury suites and relaxation. The below lodges in Madikwe Game Reserve options are suitable for single travellers, romantics, honeymooners, groups, and families. A few of the lodges will offer a private plunge pool; some offer a spa, wellness and gym facilities, while others offer the utmost luxury. No matter what you are looking for, we have it available.
If Madikwe is on your list of dream destinations, then you will be happy to know that it is not difficult to book a lodge or add one to your South African safari itinerary.
