Madikwe Game Reserve is a 75 000 hectare malaria-free reserve located northwest of Johannesburg (an easy four hour drive) along the Botswana border. It didn't take much to be enamoured by Madikwe. Everything about this place is vast - its landscapes, its heavens, its wildlife. This is rugged Africa, and then some.
The rich and undulating landscape is punctuated by enormous volcanic intrusions (known as Inselbergs) and the unique topography reveals astonishing wildlife sightings. Madikwe's animal population includes lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, spotted hyena, giraffe, antelope and the endangered Cape hunting dog. In excess of 300 resident and migrant bird species tint the ample skies.
Madikwe Safari Lodge radiates the warmth and vibrant energy of the rich red soil on which it is built. Although decor is elegant, fresh and contemporary, every brick, stone and column is almost a direct extension of the earth. Trees are as much a part of the Lodge's interiors as they are of the untouched bushveld. Three Lodges at Madikwe Safari Lodge - Lelapa, Dithaba and Kopano cater to families, couples, friends or singletons.
