Madikwe Lodge Experience Overview

By Madikwe Hills on October 31, 2019

An experience at a Madikwe lodge is a combination of pure relaxation, fantastic game viewing and warm South African hospitality. Your days will be filled with long drives exploring the bushveld, delicious meals – enjoyed at the lodge and in the bush – spa treatments and lazy afternoons spent game viewing from the comfort of your private suite.

We’d love to tell you more of what there is to look forward to from a Madikwe lodge experience.

Your Accommodation

You’ll find your accommodation in one of our 10 Suites scattered around the main areas of the lodge, each with a unique view of the surrounding wilderness. We have suites to suit couples, families or friends travelling together. We’ll do our best to select the room that we think best suits your needs.

Each suite features a luxurious bedroom, cosy living room and large en-suite bathroom featuring a bath and ball-and-claw bathtub. The rooms open up with floor-to-ceiling glass doors onto a private verandah with a plunge pool, outdoor shower and sun loungers.

If you are celebrating a special occasion or have booked the Honeymoon Suite, you won’t be able to resist the claw-foot bath tub built into a well-concealed outdoor corner for secluded soaks under African skies. There is absolute privacy here, and it really is quite a feat to tear yourself away for your game drives.

Your Activities

Speaking of game drives – at Madikwe Hills, you are invited to embark on twice daily game drives with a personal guide and tracker. Madikwe Hills is situated in the middle of the 75,000 hectare reserve offering a huge advantage on game drives compared some other Madikwe lodges.

Malaria-free Madikwe is home to all of the Big 5, as well as cheetah, wild dogs and abundant plains game. Our team looks forward to showing you Africa’s wonderful wildlife.

Wildlife can also be viewed on walking safaris and from the privacy of your suite deck.

Getting There

From Johannesburg you can drive to Madikwe Game Reserve via Zeerust or Sun City. Both routes will take you between four and five hours, depending on your speed and traffic. You can find very comprehensive directions here.

We can also help to arrange road or air transfers to best suit your time frame and schedule. Our road transfers are undertaken by registered, professional transfer companies. Road worthy, comfortable, air-conditioned vehicles are used for transfers. The vehicle type used will depend on the number of people on the transfer.

All flights are undertaken by professional and highly experienced commercial pilots. A meet and greet can be arranged for guests arriving at O. R. Tambo at no extra cost.
