Madikwe Safari Lodge:
Madikwe Safari Lodge - accommodation with private plunge poolSet on a gentle slope nestled between two rolling hills, Madikwe Safari Lodge overlooks game-filled plains with the Dwarsberg Hills in the distance and the Marico River nearby. Madikwe Game Reserve is run as a joint venture between the North West Parks Board, the private sector and the local communities.

The rich red timbres of the African earth are reflected in the warm tones of Madikwe Safari Lodge. Featuring just 20 suites in three intimate camps; Lelapa Lodge (12 suites), Kopano Lodge (4 suites) and Dithaba Lodge (4 suites). Kopano and Dithaba Lodges are ideal for exclusive-use family safaris or for private safari getaways.

With huge circular fireplaces at the heart of every suite and big glass doors to blur the boundary between inside and out, Madikwe embodies the warm, bold heart of this spectacularly rugged corner of Africa. Spacious wooden decks embrace inviting plunge pools (in all suites), and book-filled shelves in quiet corners entice and captivate.

The superb safari experience only varies in temperature and not in quality of the game-viewing; making Madikwe an excellentl year round safari destination.

Rich biodiversity of mammals, such as Africa’s Big Five, cheetah, wild dog, brown and spotted hyena, oryx, eland, springbok and ostrich.

Excellent birdwatching with over 350 bird species, diverse geology and broad mix of habitats, exceptional field rangers, intimate accommodation with sweeping views over the game-filled plains with the Dwarsberg range forming a purple-hued backdrop.
