We have just returned from our trip to Africa and the highlight of our holiday was a visit to Madikwe River Lodge. This lodge is absolutely wonderful, the rooms (chalets) were large, clean and comfortable. They are very private and each one overlooks the river where we could see Warthog and Baboons playing on the other side from our room! We had monkeys on our verandah and really felt like were were in the middle of nowhere, but with all the facilities you could possibly wish for. The game drives were absolutely brilliant and our guide Ignatius was just a legend and knew the reserve backwards. We saw almost every animal we hoped for and were even "chased" down the road backwards in the truck by an elephant, it was soooo exciting and wouldn't have missed it for the world. Although a little frighening it added to the reality of being so close to nature and we fully trusted Ingatius and his professionalism and knowledge of the bush was amazing. The food was excellent, we throughly enjoyed the outdoor dinners with a truely African experience, from the staff singing and dancing to trying some of the traditional food....delicious. It was great to get to know the other guests who travelled on the same truck and shared meal times, a great bunch of people to spend some of our holiday with. I would recommend this lodge to anyone who is contemplating going. One final lovely touch was when we left, we were sent off on our jouney with a brown paper back containing bottles of water and fruit for the trip with a little goodbye note attached! What a thoughfful jesture! We can't wait to return!
