Madikwe, meaning “Africa in its majesty,” sits in the uniquely beautiful and malaria-free North West Province, close to the Botswana border. It is one of the largest and most exclusive private game reserves in South Africa with 75,000 hectares to explore and discover Africa’s notorious Big Five.

Experience & Activities     

Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or a family, you can look forward to a peaceful escape in the bush. As a family-friendly lodge, Madikwe Safari Lodge is designed to create unforgettable memories in nature for every age group. There’s an Eco House and Kids Safari Club that are geared to engage and entertain kids with tailored experiences. Plus, there’s the option to utilise child-minders if you need a moment alone.   

Madikwe Safari Lodge offers guests experiences to embrace the spirit of Africa, with thrilling day and night game drives, world-class dining experiences, spa treatments and even the opportunity to participate in rhino conservation with a team of specialists. After an action-packed day you can simply gather on the star deck under the night sky or enjoy a shared meal in the boma. 


Madikwe Safari Lodge offers guests three luxurious camps, each combining warm hospitality, thoughtful comforts, excellent cuisine, and a chance to get closer to nature. 

Lelapa: All Lelapa luxury suites offer stunning views of the Madikwe Game Reserve that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your suite’s private deck, which includes an outdoor shower and plunge pool. Four of the camp’s suites are best suited for families with young children. Each family suite provides a kids’ room equipped with bunk beds, gown and slipper sets, and bedside hot-chocolate mugs as well as an array of toys, games, and books   

Kopano: Each of the four Kopano suites has its own private lounge, viewing deck, open-air shower, and plunge pool. From the comfort and privacy of your suite’s raised viewing deck, you can survey the vast plains of the Madikwe Game Reserve, while indulging in an outdoor spa treatment. Or just enjoy a “deckchair safari”, looking out for zebra, giraffe, elephant and various buck, with drink and snacks within reach. 

Dithaba: Enjoy a game reserve getaway in the truest sense. The Dithaba’s four luxury, private suites can accommodate both solo travellers and couples. Your suite is your personal haven. Enjoy reading by the fire, taking a long bubble bath, yoga on the deck, in-room spa treatments, or simply sunbathing on the deck, while taking in the views of the vast plains of the Madikwe Game Reserve.
