Our Location in Madikwe Game Reserve

Madikwe Game Reserve covers about 75 000 hectares of bushland stretching all the way up to the Botswana border. It is located in North-West Province, roughly 300km from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Once farmleand, the reserve has been restored over the last 30 years to a haven of wildlife. During the 90’s, the relocation of entire breeding herds of elephant, various antelope species, buffalo, black and white rhino, zebra, lion, cheetah, spotted hyena and endangered wild dog have increased the large mammal population to over 16 000.

Today, the reserve is home to roughly 90 mammals, 420 bird species and 104 tree species.
