We had an amazing time in Madikwe Safari Lodge. We stayed at Kopano lodge. The staff was so friendly with a very personal touch. You really felt at home. The food was lovely, especially breakfast was great. Lots of fresh fruit, an hot a la carte menu and other things to choose from. On our last evening we were the only ones in whole Lelapa lodge and the staff prepared a wonderful candle light dinner on the deck of our lodge. What a great surprise!
The room with plunge pool was very nice, large, clean with great views over the bush. There were always 1 or 2 spiders in the room, which you probably can't change when you are in the bush.
Our ranger, Andre, was really great. He was so knowledgeable and was not only able to find the big animals but also was able to amaze us with stories and knowledge about the small animals in the bush. We were lucky and had three game drives alone with him, on where we took a 1, hours walking safari which was an amazing experience.
One suggestion for the management: Maybe you want to think about a FAQ section on the website. I was looking for information on weather and things to bring and couldn't find anything.
- 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
