Madikwe - An African phoenix
The rich red timbres of the African earth are reflected in the warm tones of Madikwe Safari Lodge. Cradled between rolling hills, just 20 suites are clustered in three intimate camps. With huge circular fireplaces at the heart of every suite and big glass doors to blur the boundary between inside and out, Madikwe embodies the warm, bold heart of this spectacularly rugged corner of Africa. Spacious wooden decks embrace inviting plunge pools, and book-filled shelves in quiet corners entice and captivate.

“We were treated like royalty and I especially loved the decked out, beautiful rooms, with your own private splash pool outside. I would have loved a warm jaccuzi too. The food was very South African, and the vast variety of food and interesting tastes kept us totally indulged! The game was fantastic and the rangers had a great knowledge of the birds and plants. I also really appreciated the small touches, like a massage, the candles and braai set up in the middle of one of our trips.”
