Set in an undulating landscape punctuated by enormous volcanic intrusions known as Inselbergs, Madikwe Safari Lodge has not one but three individual lodges to choose from.
Three, unique lodges make up Madikwe Safari Lodge. Family-friendly, Lelapa Lodge consists of twelve luxury suites boasting a lounge with a fireplace, a covered deck, a wooden viewing deck with outdoor shower, an additional deck surrounding a private pool, and an en-suite bathroom with shower, bathtub, toilet, and double vanity. Kopano Lodge, or “small gathering” lodge, provides a more intimate experience with only four suites and a beautiful common area. The walkway from the main lodge and boma leads to the private, luxury suites that have all the amenities of the Lelapa suites. Located higher on the mountain, Dithaba Lodge is perfect for families or small groups with its four suites. Each suite has a double bed, private plunge pool, air-conditioning, fireplace, ceiling fan, outdoor shower, safe, and mini bar.
Located in South Africa’s 185,000-acre Madikwe Reserve, this luxury lodge partners with local communities to protect and enhance the region’s natural sanctuaries for both abundant wildlife and visiting guests to enjoy for many years to come. As a malaria-free area, the reserve offers diverse wildlife populations, particularly the well-known “big five”: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo. Rich mammal biodiversity includes wild dog, brown and spotted hyena, oryx, eland, springbok, ostrich, and more. Birdwatchers relish the over 350 bird species that flourish in the area, and the Dwarsberg Mountain Range provides a magnificently beautiful backdrop.
