I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. It was very romantic, quiet and peaceful. Prepare to do a whole lot of game driving and then a whole lot of nothing afterwards. Special attention was given to our specific dietry requirements and the service was excellent. We were made to feel very special and welcome.... More

The unspoiled African bush is therapeutic - the big 5; the little 5; the silence; the stars - you name it. But it's wonderful to find a special place to wash off the dust and sunblock; eat like a prince / princess; laze the siesta hours away alongside your own plunge pool and watch elephants in theirs - in your...

My son and I spent 4 days at this wonderful lodge. The staff are extremely gracious, warm, inviting, and will quietly go about providing everything you ask for or need! I loved the little chalk board messages the housekeeper left twice a day and that we could respond with a note. Texting in the bush! Our guide was JP. Wonderful!... More

We truly enjoyed our stay and the bush activities has been great thanks to the strict rules of the park (not more than 2 cars per cheetah or leopard sights) - We were lucky to see the magnificent 7 in 4 drives. Jepi has been a great ranger, polite, humble, respectful and funny. The park is amazing and the experience... More

My husband and I went to the Madikwe Safari Lodge in November 2012. The staff was amazingly kind and helpful, the food was amazing and our safari guide Gabriel was great. Gabriel is a zoologist by training and had a lot of wonderful information to share about the topography and the animals. Our huts were luxurious and the sitting decks... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time with our 4 year old daughter. All the staff were very helpful. The individual safari experience with our guide Andre was fantastic. The wine tasting in the bush with Clive was a unique experience. BOMA evening was enjoyed by all of us especially the pizza making by our daughter. We would recommend... More

What a wonderful stay, made especially special by the personalized service and small touches. Nothing was too much trouble and every request attended to. Beautiful accommodation, our son loved his very kid friendly separate bedroom. Food outstanding, Moses and Clive ensured Everything was to our liking and ran smoothly. The cherry on the top was the game drives. Joe, an... More

We spent 4 days and 3 nights with our two 8-year-olds and a couple who live in Johannesburg. This place is great. Its web site is informative and accurate. The lodge is beautiful (it executes the theme of bringing the outdoors inside quite well), the family suite was perfect for us and our kids, the operation is very accommodating of... More

(26 July – 30 July) A fantastic experience, everything was excellent and the individual lodges superb. A cosy and personal feel to the place that made you totally unwind and relax. The staff did everything to make our stay perfect – checking on us to make sure things were OK, leaving us messages on a blackboard in our room and... More

We spent 5 wonderful nights at this very special place during late July. This was a holiday to remember forever. Africa, especially the Kalahari, has always had a profound effect on us. It is beautiful and magical - almost spiritual. What made the holiday so special, however, was the way we were treated by ALL the staff at Madikwe Safari... More
