Richly diverse and malaria free, 76,000 hectare Madikwe game reserve is in the North West Province on the border with Botswana. A short flight from Johannesburg will transport you into this stunning wilderness, home to Africa’s Big 5 and thriving populations of Black rhino, Cheetah and Wild Dogs. We’ve chosen four very different style lodges, from the traditional thatch to the ultra modern.
You’ll get the very highest levels of service at each along with superb game viewing. There are species found in Madikwe that are not present in other reserves such as the Kruger area. We think you’ll find Madikwe every bit as good as it’s more famous rival, if not better. Why not visit Madikwe along with a stay at Sun City, only 2 hours drive or a short hop by plane, it makes the perfect relaxation and safari combo.
Sun City is located just 2 hours drive from Johannesburg. Set in the caldera of an extinct volcano, the resort caters for the whole family with plenty to do and see. There are hotels for every budget from the opulent 5* Palace of the Lost City down to self catering cabanas. The resort has all manner of sporting activities and entertainments including the Valley of the Waves pool, 2 golf courses, a water sports lake and a casino. There are over 20 restaurants and food outlets with every cuisine represented, as well as bars, a cinema and a theatre show. Just outside of the resort is the Pilanesberg National Park which can be visited for a guided day safari or is open to visitors who want to self drive.
Situated in the west of the Madikwe Game Reserve, Impodimo Game Lodge is carved from the hillside. Eight glass fronted luxury chalets line a natural spring, with each enjoying striking views over the bush.
At the edge of the Marico River and under a grove of Tamboti and Marula trees, you will find Madikwe Hills Safari Lodge. Where the plains teem with game, and the acacia savannah symbolizes a paragon of beauty.
