Directions to Madikwe Game Reserve
The Madikwe Game Reserve, is not as well known as the Kruger National Park, but it is in fact one of the largest game reserves in South Africa. It has the big 5 animals in the Reserve, which also has the advantage of being malaria free. There is a wide variety of birds and animals in the Reserve, and the vegetation is varied and interesting.
An interesting feature of this Reserve is that no day visitors are allowed in to view the game - only people who have booked into one of the luxurious lodges are permitted to experience the enjoyment of Madikwe. Game walks and night drives are offered to the Reserves guests.
There are 21 lodges spread throughout the Reserve, all of which can be regarded as being luxury. These lodges are: Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge, Etali Safari Lodge, Impodimo Game Lodge, Jaci's Safari Lodge, Jaci's Tree Lodge, Jamala Madikwe Royal Safari Lodge, Madikwe Hills, Madikwe Mooifontein, Madikwe River Lodge, Madikwe Safari Lodge, Makanyane Safari Lodge, Mateya Safari Lodge, Morukuru Lodge, Mosetlha Bush Camp, Motswiri Safari Lodge, Rhulani Safari Lodge, Royal Madikwe, Tau Game Lodge, Thakadu River Camp, The Bush House, Tuningi Safari Lodge. Reservations are made directly with each of the individual lodges,
Unlike the parks in the South African National Parks umbrella, Madikwe is run by three different stakeholders: the North West Parks Board, the private sector and the local communities. Government funding is not required to run the reserve as this is all generated by the private sector.
A visit to Madikwe Game Reserve is an unforgettable and special experience.
