My husband and I have just enjoyed a great weekend at Royal Madikwe. We loved our room, as warm as toast with a roaring fire lit each night (we were there in winter), a beautiful private patio overlooking the watering hole and a lovely, kingsize four-poster bed. The food was simple but good and varying the formula kept things interesting. We had some awesome elephant sightings and were even treated to seeing a leopard. Although we were without our children, there was another couple with three children aged from 3 to 11 years. They were blown away by the kiddy-friendliness of this five star lodge. The kids were presented with activity packs on arrival, were allowed to accompany mom and dad on game drives, had their own TV and playroom to spend time in and enjoyed child-friendly meals. We also had wi-fi in our room and a docking station for an iPhone. If you’re looking for a wonderfully hospitable luxury bush experience, give Royal Madikwe a try.
