Lelapa lodge offers a great all round experience in the African bush. Our room No 10 was excellent, so spacious - huge comfortable bed, indoor and outdoor shower, big bath, big deck with loungers and private plunge pool. There is a choice of meals to suit most tastes and prepared and served beautifully. I have food allergies and they were fantastic in catering to my needs. Our Ranger Jacques was very knowlegeable and went the extra mile to try and find the animals that we wanted specifically to see and kept gving us snippets of information about insects, trees etc. The Game reserve is huge but on each trip out in the game vehicle we had a great viewing experience of animals, birds and other creatures. One has to remember that the animals are wild and move around a lot so a great deal of luck and the rangers experience is required and some game drives will provide more that others but that is what makes a safari trip so special, that anticipation of what you will see and experience on the day. All the staff go out of their way to ensure one has a fantastic time. Beauty our housekeeper ensured our room was clean and tidy, Maureen our bulter waited on us with a wonderful smile and enthusiam and the rest of the staff were alway friendly and efficient, great hospitality! Wish we could have stayed longer, but we will be back.
- 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
