Madikwe Safari Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve

Deluxe - ££££


The Madikwe Safari Lodge sits in the eastern part of the Madikwe Game Reserve. It’s an incredible place for animal viewing, as all the ‘big five’ call it home. It’s not unusual to see cheetahs and wild dogs either (these are very unusual in most parts of South Africa), so make sure you go out into the bushveld as much as possible.

The entire team here is dedicated to making your holiday the best it can be; the extra effort the staff put in to make sure you see the animals is all part of the Madikwe Safari Lodge experience. The three lodges that make up the Madikwe Safari Lodge, Lelapa (‘family’), Dithaba (‘mountain’) and Kopano (meaning ‘small gathering’), have a warm and earthy vibe thanks to the red-orange coloured furnishings, brick walls and wooden embellishments. You’ll feel really close to nature here, and you are; the lodges aren’t too far from some prime animal viewing spots.

There are a few different rooms for you to choose from; whether you’re travelling with family, friends or that special someone, there’s definitely an option for you here. Each room is spacious, airy and decorated in a modern way with a natural twist, which makes it all the more comfortable.


If you need to relax after a day bumping and jolting along the reserve’s safari tracks, opt for a massage or another rejuvenating treatment in the Madikwe’s spa. It’ll make you feel so much better and prepare you for the rest of your holiday.

The lodge also offers buffet-style dining at its restaurant, with a range of dishes to suit all tastes.
