There's no holiday quite like an African safari and this four day adventure at the beautiful Madikwe Hills Reserve is the perfect introduction to life in the Bush. You will enjoy at least two game drives every day while at the reserve with every chance of seeing some or all of the Big Five. Beginning and ending in Johannesburg, this great safari package at a luxurious lodge makes the perfect add on to any longer stay in the Rainbow Nation.
Your adventure begins when you catch your one hour flight from Johannesburg to the unspoilt Madikwe Game Reserve. After an exciting touch down in the middle of the African bush you will be driven by Game vehicle to your luxury home for the next three nights. Meet for tea in the mid afternoon and then head out for your first safari experience. Madikwe is famous for sightings of the rare African dogs but there is plenty of other game to view with a strong chance of seeing all the Big Five.
Your day starts early with a dawn wake up and a quick coffee before heading out on safari. After your game drive a delicious brunch awaits in the restaurant with fantastic views across the plains. The middle of the day is your chance to relax and take advantage of your private plunge pool, and perhaps catch sight of the animals visiting the waterholes just yards away from the luxury of your room. Then enjoy afternoon tea followed by the second game drive of the day before heading back to the lodge for a delicious dinner under the stars.
Another great day on safari with two game drives, gourmet food and the chance to laze in the sun on your deck in between. There's no roughing it in the wilds of Africa here and between trips out into the Bush you can relax in comfort and style and soak up the sun. Every chance today of seeing the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and biffalo - either in the morning or the evening when the animals are at their most active. Another memorable dinner tonight under the stars.
Make the most of your final day at Madikwe Hills which begins early with your last game drive and final brunch. Then you will be picked up and driven back to the airstrip to catch the short flight back to Jonannesburg. Here you can either return to your hotel, catch an onward flight to a new destination, or begin your journey home. This short safari break can be combined easily with a longer holiday in South Africa.
