Nestled in the Madikwe Game Reserve’s malaria-free bushland, Madikwe Kopano Lodge is praised for magnificent family game viewing adventures, including Big 5 sightings. Stretching all the way to the Botswana border, the Madikwe Game Reserve is home to over 10 000 wild animals, more than 60 species of mammal and 300 species of bird.

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. Salut!

With glorious creature comforts, plenty of space for the whole family, and all dietary needs catered for, this is sure to be a stress-free getaway for the entire clan.

    “The “More” they give, the “More” you want......”

    With over 10 years safari experience, on this trip alone we visited six camps and lodges in Botswana and two in South Africa. Last year we spent a month in the Kruger and my wife has spent at least 30 nights in the Masai Mara plus other Kenyan camps and without doubt, Kopano was by far our best lodge ever. The camp is beautiful, the accommodation is luxurious, totally private and air conditioned rooms with sundeck and plunge pool. The large swimming pool 250 meters away in the sister camp was immaculate. The food and wines are carefully selected and excellent. The guiding by Steph was first class with amazing sightings. Every member of staff did an excellent job to ensure a good time was had by all. The “More” attention to detail is second to none, from a fully cooked breakfast in the bush, gin cocktails in the bush, rose petals and candles in our prepared bath to name a few – even their safari vehicles drove up to a dismounting block how incredibly thoughtful. Our only complaint- six nights was not long enough…….

    “We had the best experience ever at Madikwe Safari Lodge!”

    My husband and I came here to celebrate our honeymoon and it was the most incredible experience of our lives. We stayed in Kopano and the lodge was beautiful, with incredible views and the plunge pool on the balcony was nice on hot days to cool off. A short walk down the path and you could go to the main pool that had a watering hole very close by. We enjoyed watching all the animals come in and out for water each day! It was amazing.

    Our guide, JP, was extremely knowdlegable about every single thing you could imagine. JP knew every animal, every plant, every bird – every thing. He made us feel incredibly safe and comfortable. He had us laughing the entire time. We saw more than we had ever hoped for! This was our first safari but we felt we walked away learning so much about nature, thanks to JP. JP made us feel like family and our experience wouldn’t have come close to being the same without him.

    The staff at the lodge – Rebecca, Celestina and Maureen took fantastic care of us. They were very attentive and had made sure we were happy the whole time. Not to mention, we had so much fun with them! They were super kind and had a new surprise for us each day/night. Our chef’s name was Jack, who was amazing and served us a large variety of food. We got to try new food each night and loved that!

    Our experience here was incredible. You are safe but also well taken care of and everyone makes you feel like family. The room was beautiful, the drives were filled with amazing animals and the staff was incredible. We never wanted to leave! You will not be disappointed with your stay here!!! Best decision we ever made.
