We just arrived back from SA yesterday and all in our group agreed we had a great time on the Madikwe safari. Transfers to and from the lodge were punctual and comfortable and the driver was careful, cheerful, knowledgeable about SA and happily answered all our questions on the 4 hour drive! The lodge too was very comfortable – a real oasis in the desert. The food was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive – Alyson was thrilled by all the surprises they provided on her birthday. The waterhole and hide at the Lodge were a real bonus, providing great animal viewing between game drives and fabulous photo opportunities as well. The game drives themselves offered up almost everything there was to see in Africa – lions, cheetah, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, wild dogs, eland, oryx, impala, kudu, hyena …and more. Furthermore, our guides Stuart and Michael were really friendly and a wealth of information.
Thanks so much for your arrangements – we will be recommending both Safari With Us and Madikwe to any friends who want to safari in SA in the future.
