Facilities & Services
Along with a warm and friendly atmosphere, Madikwe Hills offers the highest standard of service, ensuring that each guests’ needs are satisfied during their luxury South African safari stay. The central area is an important part of everyday life at the Lodge. From the threshold of majestic, age-old East African doors, you immediately feel the cool breeze emanating throughout our central area. Each table in our lounge is stocked with beautiful books, waiting to be read and explored.
The bar entices guests to enjoy a pre-dinner drink and fireside chat with your friendly game rangers and managers, while the main deck overlooking the waterhole is the perfect place to while away the day under a cool umbrella. Our main swimming pool offers cool respite from the harsh African sun, and is a great way to relax with a cocktail in the afternoon. Dinners in our dining room are a silver-service experience of memorable proportions.
Beautiful Teak tables in the dining room await guests to serve up meals of the highest standard. With beautiful artwork on the walls and cutlery and crockery fit for a king, the dining room is the perfect place to spend an evening. Fine cuisine is accompanied by superb South African wines, which can be found in our extensive wine cellar next to the dining room. The cellar is a treat for the avid wine connoisseur as well as the learning amateur, and our staff will assist you by suggesting the perfect wine in accordance with the menu of that evening.
An intimate, circular room at the Main Lodge has a television with a satellite decoder for anyone who has to watch an important sports game or news. There are also a few books for those who wish to read a bit on the deck of their suites. For those wanting to keep in touch with family members back home, complimentary Wi-Fi is available in your suite, reception and the Main Lodge.
During the day, guests are welcome to wander up to the reception area to browse through our well-stocked curio shop, where you can select gifts and African memorabilia for your friends and family back home. The shop is stocked with an assortment of beautiful safari gear. Our winter gear and fleece scarves, hats and gloves are perfect for keeping the chills at bay on your evening game drives.

The best of the best!
Our stay at Madikwe Hill Private Game Lodge was (once again) incredible in every respect. Wow – what a great few days! From the rooms, to the food, to the service from every single staff member – each component was 5-star. […] Our room was sensational, with its views over the waterholes, with various animals “entertaining” us 24-hours a day. We almost did not need to go on the game drives. We have been to many lodges in and around South Africa – Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge stands out as one we cannot give a high enough rating to!
