If you’re heading between Johannesburg and Gaborone, Madikwe River Lodge is just the place to hang up the car keys. Situated in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve near the Botswanan border, you’d never guess that not so long ago, this region was little more than abandoned farmland.
With the Groot Marico River on your doorstep, Madikwe River Lodge offers a front-row seat to all the animal action. A conservation triumph, the surrounding wilderness is brimming with game, including African wild dogs and cheetah, which along with the Big Five, form the ‘Madikwe Super Seven’. We offer twice-daily game drives, guided bush walks, and more than enough quiet nooks to kick back and soak up the scenery.
At Madikwe River Lodge, we also welcome families with open arms, so bring the kids! Our accommodation options include well-equipped Deluxe River Chalets, Deluxe River Family Chalets and a Luxury River Chalet. With fireside boma dinners, bush breakfasts and an attentive team, there’s enough to keep everyone happy.
