Madikwe River Lodge

Overview


The luxurious Madikwe River Lodge is situated on the banks of Groot Marico River inside the diverse Madikwe Game Reserve, located in the North West bordering Botswana, surrounded by 75 000ha of breathtaking scenery and endless malaria-free African sandveld, acacia savannah, river-forests and wildlife. Madikwe’s convenient location – only four-and-a-half hours from Gauteng, and a mere 45 minutes by aircraft – has ensured its popularity as being easily accessible with excellent service delivery and superb facilities in spectacular bush settings.

Sixteen comfortable and secluded split-level thatched chalets surround the main lodge, each individually decorated to create a rich African feel, with en-suite bathroom and outside shower, full range of guest amenities, separate lounge and private wooden decks overlooking the tranquil forest and river.

An outdoor boma is located on a central island in the river, accessed by a wooden bridge, with early-morning breakfasts served under acacia trees and fine-dining cuisine under sparkling and smiling stars. Madikwe River Lodge is the ideal venue to host intimate wedding ceremonies amid natural elements in an African ambience, and very popular for conferencing and incentive group packages with team-building activities such as bush dinners, Big Five spotting, treasure hunts, bird-watching programmes, group game drives, game walks, stargazing and swimming.

Safari experiences are in 4×4s through the untamed wilderness of the Kalahari Thornveld, home to 66 large mammal species and 350 bird species, with opportunities to view wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion, white and black rhino, buffalo, elephant and bush babies.

From our guests


" We are from Australia and this place was awesome. The lodge is luxury. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The safari driver was the best, really knowledgeable and made the experience even better. We were lucky enough to see the Big 5. Would love to go back someday."
