Tucked away in the far north of South Africa is a 75000 hectare, malaria-free wilderness inhabited by a profusion of species from Vervet monkeys to Leopard and – of course – the odd very fortunate human. Madikwe is widely acknowledged as being one of the finest conservation areas in Africa.

The sheer, unadulterated wilderness of this place is breathtaking, as is this remarkable lodge – crafted from an exquisite palate of rich woods, raw stone and soft muted tones. Elegantly proportioned suites offer individual rim-flow pools, sweeping wooden decks and private outdoor showers.

Guest facilities are of the highest quality whilst service is attentive and warm, never intrusive. Designer dining is of the highest standard and a team of Chef’s prepare gourmet dishes for guests who dine within the plush surrounds of the elegant dining room, al’fresco beneath a million stars for those glorious African evenings, or in the privacy of their beautifully appointed rooms.

    “Beautiful, serene, relaxing property”

    We had a wonderful time at Jamala Madikwe. The property is small- only about 12 guests at a time, so know this is a very quiet, relaxing place. Staff is very good, but keeps a low profile, it almost feels as if everyone here whispers when they speak. Nico, the manager was available and a very good source of information for all our questions.

    The food here is very good, but the portions small For hearty eaters, you likely would have to request seconds- our 24 year old son was hungry a lot.

    The weather here, in December is VERY hot, so be aware of that. We had temps in the high 90’s. The air is dry and there is AC in the rooms to keep you comfortable in the evenings. The rooms are very well appointed and spacious- very comfortable beds and bathrooms.

    This reserve has an amazing watering hole on the property where animals come throughout the day and night. It was fantastic to be sitting pool side or walking through your own villa and seeing a parade of elephants walking past- a sight to remember!!

    Our guide for our stay was Lazy who we loved! He was a terrific guide- a native to the area who gave us a thorough, fun, insightful safari. Lazy left no stone unturned and chased every opportunity available to show us everything Madikwe had to offer. He was very in tune with the land and the animals and provided us with an outstanding experience. A very kind hearted, soft spoken person- we will remember him fondly!

    We really enjoyed this malaria free safari and would recommend Jamala highly to those seeking to see the big 5 and stay in a very quiet, peaceful safari lodge

    “Return visit”

    This is our second stay at Jamala Madikwe and I only wish we could go every year – it truly is magnificent. Every game drive was a memorable experience, the rooms are just gorgeous and the food is exquisite . Impossible to rate this place highly enough!
