Home South Africa Madikwe Madikwe Safari Lodge Overview

Overlooking Madikwe’s game-filled plains, on a hillside nestled between rolling hills, Madikwe Safari Lodge is made up of three intimate camps.  Whether you are looking for a romantic bush safari experience à deux or bringing the family, here there is a lodge ready for you.  All are super stylish, organically designed around the hillside, open entertainment space and happily of all, each comes with their own private plunge pool.

Generally, each camp and suite follows the same strikingly organic design with beautiful decking, stone and huge leadwood branches reaching up to the thatch roofs and red, earthy colours matched with rich ivory and cream.  Most suites come with a comfortable sofa or wicker chair filled sitting area, a romantic fireplace in the bedroom, a large dressing area with personal bar, an ensuite bathroom with a large tub and wooden decking leading to a shaded private plunge pool. 

Whichever lodge you choose you can be sure that you will be closer to raw wilderness than ever before.  Game viewing is of an extremely high standard and the team is passionate about their country, land and wildlife. There are nature walks and morning, afternoon and night game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Aside from the big five, there are over 250 bird species to get you twitching.  And at the end of the day, each lodge’s boma is the atmospheric setting for evocative starlit dinners with the African bush all around.

This is the place to...
  • Go Big Five spotting – game drives are done morning and night, or go on foot…
  • Take the family – kids of all ages are welcome and there are heaps of activities for them
  • Be massaged, pampered and soothed in the spa
  • Take your binos – there is amazing birdlife here
