We stayed here with our four children and it was their first safari experience. As a reserve, its a really good one as its very well stocked with animals in a relatively condensed area so there is plenty to see. Our guide Kenny was superb and really went out of his way to ensure we saw everything we wanted to and that the children enjoyed some great memories.
The lodges are spacious and well equipped whilst not being 5 star but at the end of the day its much more about the animals and the rooms are perfectly adequate and comfortable. The food is also a bit average (meals never quite arrived all at the same time and on one occasion the children had to have plain pasta as they had run out of sauce ) and unfortunately there are some shortfalls on service, but thats made up for by the enthusiasm and general desire of the staff to make sure you are happy and of course by the superb game drives which is what the stay is all about.
- 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
