overview

The exquisitely designed Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge provides a luxury safari experience in South Africa's malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. Situated under a grove of tamboti and marula trees on the edge of the Marico River, the lodge makes the most of its position and offers spectacular views from the main building and each private suite.

Knowledgable rangers guide you through this Big 5 Kalahari environment and will introduce you to its magnificent wildlife but part of the Madikwe Hills experience is back at camp with a health spa and fully-equipped gym, curio shop, swimming pool, library and wine cellar on hand to enhance your stay. Moreover, this family-friendly lodge welcomes children over the age of 12 and will provide them with their own game viewing activities.

Dining

Full English or buffet breakfasts are served after game drives each morning on the deck but the lodge likes to say that no two dinners will be the same.

Private dinners are offered to couples who want to spend time together in the privacy of their own room or viewing deck.

Traveller Reviews

  • Madikwe Hills - fabulous lodge with all of the perks. This lodge was an interesting contrast to Bukela. Both were very nice and wonderful experiences. But there was a very noticeable difference. The best analogy I can think of to compare them is that Madikwe is like a large chain store and Bukela is a mom and pop store. Both were very personal but Bukela was more quaint and homey while Madikwe had all of the luxury perks. I mentioned to the manager several times that I was impressed how not only he remembered the names of all of the guests, but every staff member as well, especially with the constant turnover of guests. Location was fantastic; we were treated to elephant shows right in front of our deck each afternoon!

  • The set-up at Madwike Hills Main Camp is very professional and the quality of service is excellent. The guides and trackers were great, so we saw the Big Five within 24 hours. They were knowledgeable and made the drives and the walks very interesting. I will certainly recommend Madwike Hills Main Camp to friends and family when they visit me in South Africa.

  • Wow! Thank you so much. Madikwe Hills was amazing. We got the big 4 in our first morning drive and picked up the leopard in the evening drive. Hannes is the consummate host and very helpful. Truly a wonderful experience. I would love to go back and will certainly recommend it.
