Morning wake up knock on the door, hot coffee ready in the lodge, Range Rover warmed up and standing by... Off for an adventure of a lifetime. Every game drive with Adam was different with each one revealing something new about the Bush and the marvelous animals that live within. A stop with a breakfast snack and a view of the sunrise. Upon return, Cherie waiting with warm steaming towels and a drink. A marvelous breakfast, luxury at every turn. Relaxation, massages, plunge pools, deep soaking bath tubs. Glorious views of the watering hole and the parade of animals every day that come to drink. High tea beautifully prepared with thought and style. Service impeccable. Evening game drives with vistas of the Kalahari over the border into Botswana, gorgeous sunsets, the sounds and smell of the Bush we will never forget. Dinners were beautiful, prepared to perfection, served with style and elegance, everyone's needs met. Royal Madikwe is intimate. In a very discrete and unassuming way you leave knowing you were treated like Royalty. 5 days went by just too fast. You will not be disappointed if you choose Royal Madikwe.
