Bordering Botswana in North West Province

One of the most luxurious lodges in North West Province, Madikwe Hills is approximately 4.5 hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria (last hour is spent driving in the park). Situated near the Botswana border, the Madikwe Game Reserve is the fifth largest game reserve in South Africa. The reserve boasts a rich diversity of vegetation ensuring a wide range of game while the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is conveniently located in the middle of Madikwe Game Reserve.

Traversing over 75 000 hectares of true, untamed Africa, Madikwe Hills is ingeniously placed amongst the boulders and gently ebb to the pulse of Africa’s drumbeat. If you’re looking for the best lodges in North West, then you’ve come to exactly the right place. The reserve consists of vast plains of open woodlands and grasslands and is dotted with huge rocky outcrops known as inselbergs. Madikwe is one of few game reserves in the world that was proclaimed a wildlife reserve purely on the grounds of being the most appropriate and sustainable land area for such use.

The Reserve is bordered by Botswana on the northern boundary and the Dwarsberg mountain range to the South. The main Gaborone/Zeerust road to the west and the Marico River to the east with additional land protruding across to the eastern side of the Marico River.
