The Madikwe Game Reserve, situated against the Botswana border, just 3 hours’ drive or 45-minute flight from Johannesburg, is now one of South Africa’s prime safari destinations. Madikwe, the fourth largest reserve in South Africa, is a malaria-free, Big Five Game Reserve covering an area of almost 150,000 acres. The rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of game and the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. The reserve consists of vast plains of open woodlands and grasslands, dissected by the rugged Rant van Tweedepoort and bordered in the south by the Dwarsberg Mountains. The area is dotted with huge rocky hills.
The entire reserve has been enclosed to prevent the escape of elephants and the larger predators as well as preventing neighboring livestock into the reserve. Guests are taken on guided day and night game drives or bush walks. Excellent accommodation is available at various private lodges in the reserve. There are no day visitor facilities; only lodge guests may enter the reserve.
This is an semi-independent program – you will be hosted by your chosen lodge/camp (we have numerous to choose from). Any number of nights can be arranged. This itinerary is perfect to combine with any of our Southern Africa programs.
