Madikwe Safari Lodge vs Kirkmans Kamp in Kruger

Really need help with this one. The cost per night is almost the same. They both look great in the pictures. I have stayed at Sabi Sabi before and was very pleased.

Anyone been to both of these lodges? while the quality of the game drives and the game viewing is upmost, the facility, food, etc. factors in also.

Thanks for any help

We've stayed at Londolozi near Sabi & at Morukuru Lodge in Madkwe. The animal viewing was superior at Londolozi, Morukuru was a much more luxurious & personal experience.

Hi there - I have been to both Madikwe Safari Lodge as well as Kirkmans (more than 10 times to Kirkmans, and 3 times to Madikwe Safari Lodge). Both are excellent lodges in terms of food, service, quality of rangers. If you have been to Sabi Sabi before, you may enjoy the difference in habitat offered by Madikwe.

Are there any specific animals that you would like to see? If for instance you would like to have good sightings of leopards, then Kirkmans would definitely be a better choice, but if you would like to have a good chance of seeing an animal like the endangered black rhino, then Madikwe is a better option.

If I had to choose between going to one of these lodges right now, I would choose Kirkmans, as I have found the game viewing to be very consistant, and of course they have the advantage of plenty of river frontage.

Hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any further questions!
