Madikwe Safari Lodge
Welcome to Madikwe Safari Lodge - Situated in one of South Africa’s largest and malaria-free sanctuaries – the 75 000ha Madikwe Game Reserve. Rich biodiversity of mammals, such as Africa’s Big Five, cheetah, wild dog, brown and spotted hyena, oryx, eland, springbok and ostrich. Excellent birdwatching with over 350 bird species, diverse geology and broad mix of habitats, exceptional field rangers, intimate accommodation with sweeping views over the game-filled plains with the Dwarsberg range forming a purple-hued backdrop.
Madikwe Safari Lodge radiates the warmth and vibrant energy of the rich red soil on which it is built. Although décor is elegant, fresh and contemporary, every brick, stone and column is almost a direct extension of the earth. Trees are as much a part of the Lodge’s interiors as they are of the untouched bushveld.
Madikwe Safari Lodge’s three lodges, Lelapa, Dithaba and Kopano are each uniquely different and give guests a choice to stay together as a group of family and friends, or to have a more private bush experience as a couple.

Lelapa Lodge – Connect all generations through adventure and safari - Lelapa literally means ‘family’, and this is exactly how we want you to feel - there is no restriction in terms of age or generation. Each of the 12 Suites is spacious, comfortable and ever respectful of the natural environment beyond. Indoor and outdoor showers, private plunge pool and woodburning fireplace are just some of the added creature comforts to enhance Mother Nature’s subtle signature
Children of all ages are welcome at Madikwe Safari Lodge’s Lelapa Lodge. There are many activities available for children including: family safari drives, bush orientation, bug CSI, dung tracking, track pack with Plaster of Paris, baking in the kitchen, making pizzas in the boma, star gazing, games night and much more. Children between the ages of zero and five years stay free of charge and children aged six to fifteen pay 50% of the per person adult rate. Unfortunately no game drives are allowed for children under the age of two years and children between the ages of two and five are only allowed on the late morning family safari drive. The family safari drive for children aged two to five departs at 11:00 in winter and 10:00 in summer, and lasts approximately two hours.
Kopano Lodge – A gathering of private spaces - Kopano directly translated means ‘small gathering’. The Lodge comprises just 4 Suites (each with private plunge pool) which share a magnificent common area. Fine dining to the hoot of an owl, the roar of a lion or the crazed whoop of a hyena is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Dithaba Lodge – Views that reach out across the vast open plains Dithaba (meaning ‘mountain’ in the local dialect) is located slightly higher up and has a spectacular view over the open plains. With only 4 Suites (each with private plunge pool), this Lodge is well suited to a group of friends or family members making it their own while on safari. Or for those who simply prefer the sound of nature and little else.
The rich and undulating landscape is punctuated by enormous volcanic intrusions (known as Inselbergs) and the unique topography reveals astonishing wildlife sightings. Madikwe’s animal population includes lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, spotted hyena, giraffe, antelope and the endangered Cape hunting dog. In excess of 300 resident and migrant bird species tint the ample skies.
It would be difficult to find a team of more enthusiastic guides who enjoy nothing better than starting and finishing each day out in the wild in search of animals big and small. Whether leopard or chameleon, rhino or dung beetle, they will share a riveting story and teach you something you never knew before. Guided walks are another way to appreciate the bush, and to enjoy a different perspective from terra firma.
Whether it’s your first breakaway as a couple or your second honeymoon, you want it to be an unforgettable experience. Romantic, idyllic, private and secluded – Madikwe Safari Lodge is the ideal setting to celebrate the start of a new life together or to fall in love all over again.
The suites are private and spacious, equipped with their own private swimming pools with great views over the surrounding landscape. In Winter, May through to August, the wood burning fireplace in each suite makes for once of the most romantic turndowns, falling asleep as the soft light flickers throughout the room.
Surrender to the beauty and serenity of the bushveld and enjoy being pampered and looked after by our staff, while you get to relax and truly enjoy each other’s company. Surrounded by nature and all its charms, a honeymoon at Madikwe Safari Lodge is without a doubt one of the most romantic getaways you’ll ever experience.
