For my wife and me, this was our first safari, and the team from the Madikwe Safari Lodge made sure it was a five-star experience. The food was wonderful (felt like we were always eating!), the rooms were luxurious (especially considering we were in a remote area of South Africa) and the game drives were very educational and exhilarating. Martin was a delight with his encyclopedic knowledge of the bush -- from ants and termite mounds to birds and plant life to the Big Five.
And when our ride back to Jo-burg broke down, the lodge worked to get us on a plane out on short notice to connect successfully with our international flight. All the staff were very courteous and friendly. I highly recommend the Madikwe Safari Lodge.
- 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
