We stayed in the Dithaba lodge. We were a group of 9 and so had sole use of the lodge. The food and service was fabulous and our children were well catered for as they were taken to the lelapa lodge for children's activities in between drives. We had a great bush dinner and boma meal. Our ranger, Gerhard, was... More

If the rating system could go to 10 stars, my rating would be 15! We stayed at the Kopano lodge as one of the 3 properties from MORE Madikwe Safari lodges. Isaac and his team are marvelous. Pampered with stress free environment, outstanding cuisine, dinner in the bush (with style!) and candlelight dinners, from morning to evening, there is no... More

We were at Madikwe Safari Lodge for our honeymoon. All was just perfect (room, ranger, team, reserve). A lot of attentions for us, all the staff were incredible with us. Specially our ranger. We got an excellent massage there also.

Trip of a lifetime. Amazing game, friendly staff, luxury accommodation, fed far too well. Staff remembered what we liked to drink at Breakfast and dinner. Food was fabulous. Setting great with many visits from Elephant, zebra and Giraffe to the water hole beside the swimming pool.

I stayed at the Kopano Lodge of the Madikwe Safari Lodge Group. It was perfect! Adults and children of 16 or older. Only 8 guests. The lodge was breathtaking and the staff could not do enough!

We stayed at the smaller Lodge with only 8 guests and it was truly magical! The rooms are exceptional with the perfect balance of luxury and Bush beach room feels completely secluded and has its own private plunge pool. The staff were friendly, the food great! Highly recommend this spot!

Overview: First things first....we absolutely loved this vacation, we loved the people, we loved the lodge and would go back in a heartbeat. We are a family of 5 with 3 small children (ages 7, 5, and 1.5). Many thought we were crazy for traveling with such young children to the middle of the bush in South Africa. Lelapa Lodge... More

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
