Luxurious Accommodations at Madikwe

Beautiful and comfortable accommodations with the best service

Staying overnight at one of the Madikwe Safari Lodges is quite an experience! First of all, the game reserve does not allow day trips which will add a more personal touch to your trip. So no rush, you’ll be invited to just take your time and enjoy your stay.

Secondly, the rooms are absolutely gorgeous! The staff at the lodges pamper every guest after an adventurous game drive and offer delicious meals in between. No expense is spared at the Madikwe luxury lodges. But that doesn’t mean that you have to dig deep into your pocket. The prices are – believe it or not – affordable!
