x 24

Ingeniously set amongst boulders and age-old Tamboti trees, the lodge is situated in the middle of Madikwe, giving visitors a huge game drive advantage over other lodges situated on the borders of the reserve.

Accommodating up to 24 guests in vast, well-spaced and utterly private glass-fronted suites scattered across the hillside, camouflaged by tamboti-beamed thatch roofs. Wooden walkways lit by hurricane lamps criss-cross the grounds and connect the secluded suites to the central open-plan lounge, bar, wine cellar, TV-room and dining where giant twisted trunks of leadwood trees hold up the vaulted ceiling.

Each suite has a cosy living room with huge slate-clad chimney (perfect to snuggle up in front of an open fire on cooler nights) leads into the peaceful bedroom with a gigantic pillow-strewn four-poster bed from where it’s possible to lie and gaze in wonder as herds of wandering animals make their way to the watering hole.

Throw open the floor-to-ceiling windows and retreat to a sunbed in the shade of an acacia tree, or grab a towel and jump into your own personal plunge pool for the ultimate in relaxed game viewing – you’ll be amazed at what passes by less than a hundred feet from your deck.
The cathedral-like bathrooms are ultra-luxurious. A large deep tub takes centre stage in front of fold-back windows that reveal the same wilderness views and a cavernous step-up circular shower is built into the opposite wall. Just outside the far door is an open-air extension with a private outdoor shower.

Guest Feedback

Luxury in style, fit with the ambiance!

If you like nature but don’t want to miss being pampered and spoiled, this is the place. It is a super luxury boutique lodge, in absolute harmony with the surroundings. Everything is there, but without exaggeration. The facilities are exquisite and, most important, in full respect of nature. The team is fantastic. Everybody appears to love what she/he is doing and know very well his field. Bear in mind that the staff outnumbers the guests, so any request will be met promptly and professionally. The food is great and there is an effort to feel part of a large group, discretely blending with other guests. But the hit is the reserve. Madikwe is an excellent place to see wildlife in its real environment, unaffected by overcrowding . We saw more species than we ever hoped to, but that’s also thanks to our guide, SAM !
Trust me, it’s worth every penny you will pay and when they say it’s all inclusive, they mean it.
Definitely a five star lodge !

Long Stay Rate

Long stay rates depend on duration of total stay and season of travel. The total stay can be in Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge only, or be made up of shorter stays in Sanctuary Makanayane Safari Lodge and one or more other Sanctuary Retreats camps or lodges anywhere in Africa together. Stays in more than one camp or lodge do not need to be consecutive, but must belong to one itinerary. For example, if booking a total of 6 nights with Sanctuary Retreats in 3 different lodges or camps with 2 nights in each, use the ‘4 – 6 nights’ rates for each of the camps.
