I stayed here for a short break on the 15th of November. The lodge is wonderful. One of the best I have stayed in Madikwe. The food was excellent. The best aspect of all was the game drives. The highlight of which was a wild dog sighting. Definitely a great place to stay.

My second trip to Madikwe and it didnt disappoint. If I have one complaint it would be too much food! As usual, the luxurious rooms were beautiful, private plunge pool, outdoor as well as indoor showers, huge comfortable bed .... And the place was spotless. The best bit about the five days there was definitely the game viewing. Andre is... More

This review is well overdue to be written as my husband and I stayed at Madikwe Safari in March this year. I'm not really quite sure where I can start or for how long I can write about this Lodge, but to say it was OUTSTANDING is an understatement! We have been on 5 previous safaris and this was amazing.... More

Our safari and stay at the Madikwe Safari Lodge was amazing! Be prepared to eat more than 3 meals a day as they offer breakfast muffins before the safari, breakfast during, hot breakfast upon your return, lunch, tea, cocktails on safari, and dinner. The accommodations are very nice, especially the outdoor shower. I would've liked a little more light in... More

Absolutely loved every minute of our trip. Staff was wonderful and our ranger (Andre) was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. It was... More

The entire staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful, the accommodations very clean and exceptionally comfortable. JP, our ranger, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. His genuine love and concern for every creature large and small, was impressive. We will never forget our time shared with the special people of Madikwe Safari Lodge.

Most definitely to safari and even more, most definitely to Madikwe Safari Lodge. A simple yet delicious setting with everything you could want or dream of needing supplied but not an ounce of clutter more. The staff are warm welcoming and delightful. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and inclusive of the irresistible private plunge pool on the deck which looks... More

Madikwe Lodge (and Africa in general) exceeded our highest expectations. This was our first trip to Africa, and it was truly magical. Madikwe Lodge was a major reason for our high satisfaction level. The accommodations are fabulous - if anything they're even nicer than the pics at the web site. The deck, plunge pool, and outdoor shower were heavenly. We... More
