A Luxurious Safari Lodge Escape Into The Unspoilt Nature Of The Madikwe
With its earthy plastered walls, dry packed stonework 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 safari suite and central guest area overlooks the majestic panorama of the Dwarsberg Hills, as well as the Marico River, a green ribbon cutting through the landscape.
Madikwe Safari Lodge is split into three individual and separate options, each with its own take on decor and luxury levels and amenities. Each of the three lodges has its very own dining facilities that are separate and independent from each other.
Rooms and Suites
Madikwe Safari Lodge is unique in the fact that it consists of three separate options offering a total of 20 luxury suites.
All 20 suites offer double bed or king-sized beds, plunge pools, fireplaces and air-conditioning. An en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and indoor and outdoor showers.
Lelapa; (Lelapa means 'family') is a family-orientated establishment with 12 suites in total. For families, an option of 4x two-bedroomed family suites with the second bedroom having bunk beds and a sleeper couch.
Kopano; offers four luxurious suites but does not host children under the age of 16 years.
Dithaba; with only four suites but does not host children under the age of 16 years.
Cuisine and Wine
Traditional Southern African cuisine is complemented by a selection of world-class local wines when dining at the renowned Madikwe Safari Lodge.
Twice daily game drives - explore a network of tracks that lead through the reserve's various habitats on early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives accompanied by a ranger. The rangers have an in-depth 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 providing regular sightings. Late afternoon game drives often encounter wildlife around the many dams on the reserve.
The acacia savanna of attracts bushbabies, which can often be spotted leaping from branch to branch on night drives.
