Tucked in the riverine forest of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, Makanyane Safari Lodge provides unique luxury accommodations and devoted personal service.
The lodge’s eight sumptuous air-conditioned suites feature wrap-around glass-walled bedrooms ensuring panoramic views of the Marico River and surrounding bush-land. Every suite is designed for optimal comfort and comes with open-fronted sitting areas and large en-suite bathrooms with roll top baths, inside and outside showers, and sliding doors that lead into the bush. Plus, each suite includes a private sundeck for relaxing and watching the wildlife meander past.
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.
