We stayed at the Motswiri lodge, luxurious accommodation under attractive leadwood trees. The main lodge had very comfortable common areas, a small pool, pleasant bar, walkway to the water hole, etc. Our sleeping quarters was a very large lodge, comfortably and tastefully finished with a patio overlooking the water hole. Food good and pleasantly presented. Staff very helpful. Fauna and flora in plentiful supply. Lisa, the manageress of the lodge made our stay particularly enjoyable. Performed her duties most efficiently and discretely, always helpful and in full control at all times. Stewart, ranger and driver on our morning and evening drives was the second star of our stay. A man with unfathomable knowledge of the bush and natural ability to communicate it with his charges. Like Lisa, always in full control and no question, however trite, was a problem. Both great asset to Motswiri and Madikwe Game Reserve.

We had an excellent time in the Madikwe Nature Reserve. We saw the Big 5 all on one game drive and wildlife was in abundance. So many elephants!

Madikwe is a relative new private game reserve (about 20 years old) but it is off to a great start. We saw a wide range of animals including most of the big 5. Overall, very good place for our first Safari adventure!
