Parked on the north-western border of South Africa is one of the countries largest game reserves, Madikwe. This malaria-free safari destination is an exclusive and spectacular game park that straddles the transition from savannah woodland to the semi-arid desert of the Kalahari. Home to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, wild dog and cheetah as well as a large number of plains game and over 360 species of birds, there’s certainly plenty to see. There are a variety of spectacular lodges to choose from in Madikwe, each with its own distinct character and atmosphere. Madikwe Safari Lodge and Jamala Madikwe are two of our favourites.
