    Madikwe Game Reserve

    “Already planning our next trip!!”

    My family and I stayed in the Lelapa lodge for four nights and it certainly did not disappoint! Our whole trip was a surreal experience, it truly is a magical place. The food was delicious and the staff were very accommodating to your every need, not only regarding food. A special mention must go to our safari guide, Mitchell. Who without, our experience would not have been the same, his animal tracking skills were top notch! If you’re thinking about staying here, I wouldn’t even question it, just do it.

    “Loved it so much we came back”

    We love everything about this lodge!
    The cottages are super comfortable the staff just delightful and so helpful.
    Chef went out of his for our friend with a food allergy, and all the meals were amazing.
    Our driver guide was very informative and patient with our love of grey bottoms.
    They also have stairs and a platform so that old legs can get in the vehicles easily.
    Our only negative comment is in regards to smokers, they should smoke outside away from diners.

    “First safari”

    We love Madikwe! We took a 45-minute flight from Joburg and on the 19 minute Land Rover Rude to the lodge we got to see giraffe, zebra, elephant and impalas! October is a great month to visit as we were treated to babies of almost every animal we saw.
    Saw the “big five“ within 3 days. The accommodations are superb!, the staff is First Class – thank you, Johan!!! Guides were great – don’t miss Madikwe!!!

    “Magical Madikwe”

    We have just returned from our holiday to SA and had the most wonderful time. We stayed 2 nights at Madikwe Safari Lodge – Dithaba and all I can say it was truly magical from beginning to end. Everything was just perfect, the staff were so helpful, warm and friendly, the game drives were just amazing and the accommodation more than met our expectations. There is nothing I would change about this place and loved the fact they always added some special memorable touches as well – will certainly return here without a doubt if I ever get the opportunity again. I would highly recommend this place.
