About
Description
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 More the Dwarsberg Hills, just 20 suites are clustered in three intimate camps. With 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, and book-filled shelves in quiet corners entice and captivate, while large pizza ovens add a fun twist to meal times. Less

The chance of seeing a snake is about as close to zero as it could be. Even if you wanted to see a snake it would be hard! Most snakes will leave you alone, if you leave them alone, just stop and slowly walk the other way... More

The lodges all undertake on- and off-road guided excursions with four wheel drive vehicles. No private 'off roading' takes place in the reserve.
