Put it on your bucket list! I don't even know where to start since the experience was so amazing, incredible and over the top in every way. A giraffe met our plane on arrival and we saw impala and elephants on our way to the lodge. JP, our field ranger, was intent on showing us as many animals as he could during our six game drives. His genuine love of animals and enthusiasm for every aspect of the bush was infectious, and as a result we saw all of the Big 5, although the one leopard we saw was quite a distance away and could only be seen well through binoculars. The staff is committed to ensuring you have the best experience you can. The website gives you a guideline for tipping but everyone we spoke to wanted to tip more! Between the game drives we were treated to wonderful meals, great drinks, a massage, and the use of our own plunge pool from where we could watch elephants and wildebeest in the distance. My husband and I took a bush walk one day and had a very close encounter with a rhino - a bit too close, but sooooo exciting! We enjoyed every single minute of our stay and can't recommend Madikwe Safari Lodge highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The rich red timbres of the African earth are reflected in the warm tones of Madikwe Safari Lodge. Cradled between rolling hills, overlooking game-filled plains intersected by the Marico River and framed by the Dwarsberg Hills, just 20 suites are clustered in three intimate camps. With circular fireplaces at the heart of every suite, and big glass doors to blur the boundary between inside and out, Madikwe embodies the warm, bold heart of this spectacularly rugged corner of Africa. Spacious wooden decks embrace inviting plunge pools, and book-filled shelves in quiet corners entice and captivate, while large pizza ovens add a fun twist to meal times. ... more less
