About Madikwe Safari Lodge
Madikwe Game Reserve, in the North West province, is one of South Africa's largest Big Five game reserves and features a variety of lodges and camps, ranging from comfortable to luxurious.
Set in a malaria-free area in the historic North West province, near the border with Botswana, the 76 000 hectare (187 800 acre) Madikwe Game Reserve supports a diverse combination of bushveld and the semi-arid Kalahari.
The rich red timbres of the African earth are reflected in the warm tones of Madikwe Safari Lodge. Cradled between rolling hills, overlooking game-filled plains intersected by the Marico River and framed by the Dwarsberg Hills, just 20 suites are clustered in three intimate camps.
Each suite, strikingly organic in design, features a comfortable sitting area, romantic circular fireplace in the bedroom, and spacious dressing area with personal bar. The beautiful ensuite bathroom boasts a large bathtub, and indoor and outdoor showers. French doors open onto a wooden deck leading to an inviting private plunge pool.
Guest areas feature a series of intimate sitting areas and shaded outdoor seating on the expansive covered decks. There are fireplaces both inside and out for fun dining. A covered outdoor living room offers beanbags and cushions for casual bonhomie. The boma is the setting for evocative dinners around a blazing fire. Living areas are designed to be cool in summer and warm in winter.
An easy 4 hour drive from Johannesburg, Madikwe is great for families and those seeking an accessible, malaria-free wilderness experience.
