MADIKWE Safari Lodge
|Nestled on a gentle slope of the rolling hills above the flat plains of Madikwe, the conical roofs and chimneys of the Lodge blend imperceptibly into the surrounding bushveld. Seemingly part of this wild landscape, Madikwe Safari Lodge reflects the legendary but whimsical hospitality of the often tough inhabitants of this untamed corner of South Africa.|
Sweet as a midnight treat of hot chocolate with marshmallows, yet sharp as the tang of a traditional shot of mampoer liquor, Madikwe will enchant and entertain you.
|With only 20 suites split into three camps, Madikwe offers a personal touch that leaves you feeling pampered. Groups gather around large fireplaces and compare wildlife encounters, whether in the snug sitting areas with their board games and books or over the full flavours of meals in the dining rooms.|
Colours bursting with warmth and easygoing layouts, like the casual covered living room filled with beanbags, swinging chairs and cushions scattered directly on the floor, reflect a carefree and comfortable lifestyle.
Take sanctuary among natural textures and rich materials in spacious suites with circular fireplaces. Glass doors blur boundaries between inside and out, and your private sitting area is the perfect vantage point for an afternoon spent gazing at the bush.
Watch elephant, giraffe and warthog from the depths of your deep, copper-plated bathtub, which opens out onto a private deck, or indulge in a cool splash in the strategically placed plunge pool. Take your shower indoors or out, with only the whisper of the wind and maybe a curious yellow hornbill for company.

The acacia savanna of Madikwe attracts bushbabies, which can often be spotted leaping from branch to branch on night drives.
