Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in the marvellous Madikwe

Arrive at Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport and transfer to Madikwe Private Game Reserve, located on the edge of the Kalahari in South Africa's North-West Province. Madikwe is considered one of the country's prime safari destinations due to its long list of resident animals and its malaria-free setting.

Madikwe is a region of grassland and open woodland environments bordered by rugged mountain ranges and studded with rocky hills. It's home to Africa's famous Big 5 as well as cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, giraffe, hippo, zebra and many species of antelope and other herbivores. There are also more than 300 recorded bird species in Madikwe, and there's an intriguing blend of familiar savannah animals and more unusual desert specialists.

Unwind after game drives in the outdoor sitting area, set on an expansive deck with lovely views over the reserve and complete with comfortable cushions and bean bags.
