The best time to visit the Madikwe Game Reserve are the South African spring and autumm seasons, as you wil get nice sunny days and not to chilly evenings.
Best months are September and October, the park is dry, animals congrate at pools and rivers which makes them more easy to find, temperature is hot during the dy and nice summerevenings.
December-March is rainy seasons, but this rain comes mostly in afternoon thunderstorms. In general Madikwe catches only 600-800 mm of rain so that isn't very much. During the day it can be come hot. The scenery will be green.
April till August are also nice months with clear bly skies during the day with temperatures around 20-25 degrees but during the nights temperatures can go back till 0 degrees.
