MADIKWE HILLS PRIVATE GAME LODGE
The edge of the Marico River and under a grove of Tamboti and Marula trees alike, you will find yourself enchanted by a world of intrigue and majestic beauty. Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, in the heart of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, is where the plains still team with game and the acacia savannah symbolizes a paragon of beauty. Black rhino roam freely amongst the Big 5 – giraffe gallop across the plains at sunset and zebra call out to one another in the early hours of the morning, after enduring a night of the “savage beast” upon the plains – Lion.
Traversing over 75,000 hectares of true, untamed Africa and set in magnificent kopjies amongst boulders, Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge gently ebbs to the pulse of Africa’s drumbeat. The luxurious suites are ingeniously placed amongst the boulders. The unusual, yet subtle décor integrates natural elements with colours highlighting Africa’s ambiance.
After a mere 45-minute flight from Gauteng, or a scenic four-hour drive, you will be met by our warm and friendly staff in the main reception area. It is here where you can select gifts for your friends and family back home from our curio shop, which boasts a breath-taking view of the boulders and rocks of Madikwe Hills. Open Land Rovers with bucket seats and fold-down armrests stand ready to take you on safari. Your knowledgeable ranger with his friendly disposition will ensure that your experiences are not but a “whisper on the winds of a timeless eternity”.
Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge consists of a Main Lodge with ten suites and a private camp, Little Madikwe Hills Private Camp.
Main Lodge, where your suite has been designed for complete relaxation and comfort, boasts soft sofas, voluptuous mosquito netting and cotton picot linen. Overhead fans and air-conditioning are a welcome respite from the harshness of the African heat. Salute the timelessness of Africa with sundowners from your fully stocked mini bar. For the energetic, Madikwe Hills offers a fully equipped gym and health spa; for the businessman, your Internet connection beckons!
Little Madikwe Hills offers the ultimate in luxury and privacy. A 2-bedroom villa, its own private Land Rover and game ranger and a personal butler to take care of all your needs form a completely private camp. A gourmet kitchen and entertainment centre completes the picture.
Children of all ages are most welcome and are accommodated with their own game activities and where needed. Nannies can be arranged to baby sit.
A library full of verse and history awaits those yearning for knowledge of the African continent. Fables of Scorpio and Orion of Greek mythology may be told by your ranger, whilst dining in a rustic boma where dramatic and exotic flames dance to the uneven beat of life’s drum. Perhaps you will discover the navigational skills of the Southern Cross before dining in the sophistication of silverware. Breakfast on the deck is an absolute must!
