Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge
The North West province of South Africa is amongst some of the best kept secret safari experiences in the country. Quieter and less frequented than the infamous Kruger National Park, the Madikwe Game Reserve is 75,000 acres of rich biodiversity. The ‘Big 5’ is accompanied by over 66 mammal species and 300 diverse bird species, making it some of the most vibrant wildlife reserve in the whole of South Africa. Modestly accommodating up to 24 guests in the glass fronted suites that are nestled into the hillside, Madikwe Game Reserve is a sensational safari lodge. In the centre of the lodge is the main lodge, where the spa, dining and deck are all overlooking the waterhole, so there is always a chance to glimpse the wildlife as they seek out water. Built around the ancient leadwood trees, their twisted trunks are the centre of accommodations, intertwining the lodge with the land and emphasising the sense of place that will attract you back to this remarkable corner of the world again and again.
