Accommodation

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.

Location

An easy 4 hour drive from Johannesburg, Madikwe is great for families and those seeking an accessible, malaria-free wilderness experience.

Game Drives

Game drives showcasing Africa's most impressive wildlife, led by expert rangers in 4x4 safari vehicles, as well as excellent bird watching with over 350 recorded species. Or simply choose to relax and enjoy this beautiful, historically rich area.

Childrens Programme

Between family game drives, the fun continues with our tailor-made kids’ programme of experiences. There is everything from animal ‘spoor’ tracking, meeting Debbie the bearded dragon, and pool games; to baking, arts and crafts, and dress-up plays to get excited about; before an evening of outdoor movies and dinner.

We had the privilege to stay at Madikwe for our honeymoon in 2010, and we were blown away by the service, food and scenery. We are planning a trip back there as soon as possible. Its worth every penny spent!! They made us feel very special espcially with it being our honeymoon they truly went the extra mile for us! And to this day, nearly 3 years later, its an experience that will never leave our memories and we hold close to our hearts!! Keep up the FANTASTIC job to all the staff at Madikwe Safari Lodge! :)
