Hi, Thank you very much for your kind review. We are so pleased that you found Madi Madi as much a paradise as we feel it is. You are correct in saying that one night simply is not enough, and it is great that you booked for the 2 nights that you stayed. We truly appreciate every comment and I will ensure the kitchen team and Jessica know about the compliments you bestowed on them. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Natasha

Impeccable hospitality. The rooms are very welcoming with a breathtaking landscape and with many animals: impala, surice, horses. The breakfast is very good and international. Lunch and dinner tastes delicious.

Hi, Thank you very much for your kind review. I am extremely pleased that you enjoyed your stay here with us as much as you did. The animals here at Madi-Madi do truly make it special, and they are a big part of our family. I am sorry you only experience an average dining experience. I would appreciate if you could email the lodge direct so that I can focus on improving where you feel it might be needed. We hope to see you again soon in the near future - hopefully including a Sunset River Cruise this time. Kind regards, Natasha and the whole Madi-Madi team.

We stayed two nights, and loved Madi Madi, we had the river front cottage, large suite with a log fire. Don't think I have ever been somewhere so quiet, completely silent . Staff were friendly and discreet. Highlight is the 6 tame Meerkats and springboks who visits for a pet

Our drive to Madi-Madi was a fun one on the R62 from Ashton. The welcome was friendly and warm and our house was perfectly cool as it was a warm day. We were also welcomed by the resident meerkat family and some tame springbok. Even though the dam was empty the views and quiet

Hi, Thank you very much for your kind review. I prefer the R62 myself. I am so pleased that you enjoyed Madi-Madi and the magic it has to offer as much as we love this very special place. The animals around the lodge are certainly a big hit with all our guests, and I am sure they will be a fond memory for a long time. Please do come back when the river is full again, it is a different kind of beauty to experience again. Kind regards, Natasha and the whole Madi-Madi team
