Junior Rangers & Kiddies

Truly Memorable Interactive Safari Experiences

The African bush is a unique and exciting playground for the youngsters. An intriguing experience for all ages. At Madikwe Hills we go the extra mile to ensure your kids leave educated and enlightened.

Madikwe Hills Main Lodge caters for children over 10 years, while kids of all ages are welcome at Little Madikwe. From experienced sitters for the babies and fun activities for the kiddies to informative Junior Ranger programmes creating an awareness of this special bush environment, Madikwe Hills creates memorable family experiences.


This is a must-do experience… The Junior Rangers learn all the different interesting aspects of the bush through a range of fun exercises. At Madikwe Hills the Junior Rangers enjoy a hands-on experience by touching elephant dung, looking at tracks, finding out HOW to track. Learning about termites while standing right next to a large termite mound etc this is an exciting and education experience for all ages.

The Rangers are given “funwork” not “homework”, a booklet they can complete before or during the afternoon drive which is marked and each child receives a certificates stating they are a Junior Ranger of Madikwe Hills. This programme can be run for 1 – 2 hours in one day, or if the guests are staying for more than two nights it can broken up into two days. The fun never stops at Madikwe Hills.

Large Family Vacation

We went as a large group for a family holiday before Christmas. The Lodge was beautiful and tranquil. The food was beautifully cooked and of a great variety. All of the staff looked after us incredibly well and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The rangers were very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions that we had!
