GAME VIEWING

Game viewing, however, is Madikwe's main activity, and the reserve is the fourth largest game reserve in South Africa and boasts the second largest Elephant population. Game Drives and Bush Walks are conducted daily by our excellent rangers, and although children under the age of 8 years are not permitted on the standard game drives, specialised Children's Drives are offered.

Outdoor catering is a main part of life at Madikwe River Lodge, and, weather permitting, meals are usually served outdoors. Dinner is served in our Island Boma or in the lodge dining room, lunch is served on the main lodge deck, whilst breakfast is served in the dining room or outdoor deck. The summer months allow for the added experience of Bush Dinners, which can be arranged on request.

Regrettably, children under the age of 8 years are not permitted at all outdoor dining venues, however provision is made for children's meals in the main dining room

MADIKWE GAME RESERVE

Madikwe Game Reserve is situated in the North West Province and is bordered by Botswana in the north, the Dwarsberg Mountains to the south, and the Marico river to the east. The diverse habitat in the reserve, from acacia savannah to riverine, ensures a unique combination of species, including wild dog, cheetah, lion, white and black rhino, buffalo and elephant. The birdlife is spectacular and it is also one of the few reserves in South Africa that is malaria free.

In 1992, Madikwe Game Reserve saw the translocation of 10000 head and 27 species of game over a six year period. The government-sponsored programme involved re-stocking and conserving flora and wildlife, which had disappeared from the region, and its huge success has ensured excellent game viewing.

Verified reviewexcellent

This was my first African experience and I can't express how much I enjoyed it.It was the trip of a lifetime for me and my stay at Madikwe River Lodge was the ultimate introduction to the African bush. The accomodation was more than adequate, the staff exceptionally courteous and entertaining. Nothing was too much trouble for them, day or night.The drives were interesting and very informative and at times exciting. (We saw a Pangolin). The respect for and understanding of the animals, by the drivers, is to be greatly admired.Seeing animals in their natural environment has forever spoiled zoos for me.I hope to have the opportunity to visit Madikwe River Lodge again.
