Each day at the Royal Madikwe is designed entirely by you with the guidance of your experienced ranger’s wealth of knowledge. A Dawn & Dusk game drive in an open vehicle, especially designed for optimum comfort and game viewing, is recommended daily to experience the unforgettable sights of the African bush. In addition to game drives, Bush Walks provide the opportunity to get closer to your surroundings, appreciating the quietness of the bush and the excitement of following game paths, in the footsteps of the animals. Bush Walks also allow you to gain interesting knowledge of the smaller creatures and plant life within the reserve.

Depending on your interests we can also offer the following activities:

• Photographic  Safari
• The Celestial Safari
• Ranger Skills Training

Notice prior to your arrival is requested for the above activities
