"Madikwe Safari Lodge is a collection of three fantastic properties, offering an exceptional ‘malaria-free’ safari – there is something for everyone here."

OVERVIEW: Impressive & malaria-free lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve

The lodge lies on a gentle slope of rolling hills and overlooks the Madikwe plains. It is split into three smaller lodges that are only a few minutes walk apart – Lelapa with twelve suites, Dithaba with four, and the more exclusive Kopano which also has four. (Dithaba Lodge can be rented exclusively by a large group or family.)


Madikwe Safari Lodge is situated in Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa's North West province. The area is a mix between the semi-arid Kalahari and bushveld. 


The lodges are thatched, with packed stonework and wooden beams. They all have spacious bedrooms with a comfortable sitting area, ensuite bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers, and French doors that open onto a wooden deck with a private plunge pool. Madikwe is particularly suitable for families with young children as it is malaria-free. Children are welcome at Dithaba and Lelapa Lodges, but not Kopano.


Game-viewing is extremely good here and includes all of the Big Five. The guiding is also impressive. Meet the Madikwe Safari Lodge guides here and learn more about their fascinating experiences.

*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
