Recently stayed at the Madikwe Safari Lodge for 3 nights. The property is beautiful and well maintained. It does appear to be more spread out than usual because rooms are far from the center. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. The included minibar is stocked every morning. The food was always amazing. There was no change in breakfast menu but the dinner menu changed nightly. Some dinners were held outside in the Boma. The staff makes this place exceptional. My ranger was Andre Nell who was amazing. He is very smart and knows a lot about the animals and the topography. He even took the time to go over some constellations with us during a nighttime drive. However, I still don't understand the spitball games (had to be there to understand)! Sam Moralo was the manager during my stay and he was excellent. I had a couple of major challenges and he handled them efficiently. Merriam and our butler were welcoming and courteous. The massage I received on the deck of my room was nice as well. I have been on several safaris in the past but I chose this area for the wild dogs and the bird with multicolors (?). It was truly fascinating chasing a huge pack of wild dogs and getting those shots of the multicolor birds during the last morning drive. Unfortunately, did not get see the Big 5 but the EXCELLENT service and wild dogs made up for everything. Will be back soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The rich red timbres of the African earth are reflected in the warm tones of Madikwe Safari Lodge. Cradled between rolling hills, overlooking game-filled plains intersected by the Marico River and framed by the Dwarsberg Hills, just 20 suites are clustered in three intimate camps. With circular fireplaces at the heart of every suite, and big glass doors to blur the boundary between inside and out, Madikwe embodies the warm, bold heart of this spectacularly rugged corner of Africa. Spacious wooden decks embrace inviting plunge pools, and book-filled shelves in quiet corners entice and captivate, while large pizza ovens add a fun twist to meal times. ... more less
