Madikwe River Lodge – Madikwe Game Reserve

The Lodge:

Positioned on the banks of the Groot Marico River, bordering Botswana, the luxurious Madikwe River Lodge offers guests the chance to enjoy the sights and sounds of Africa, whilst relaxing on a shady wooden deck in riverine bush.  Sixteen split-level suites surround the main lodge, with the outdoor dining boma located on a central island, accessed by a wooden bridge over the river.  Your safari experience takes you to the untamed wilderness of the Kalahari Thornveld, where dining under African stars and early morning breakfasts under Acacia trees are the norm.  Home to 66 large mammal species and 350 bird species, Madikwe River Lodge offers the opportunity to view Black Rhino, Wild Dog and even Bush Babies.
