Madikwe Safari Lodge is situated in one of South Africa’s largest malaria-free wildlife sanctuaries – the Madikwe Game Reserve. The family-owned lodge consists of three camps, providing intimate accommodation overlooking Madikwe’s game-filled plains.
The three lodges, Lelapa, Dithaba and Kopano are each uniquely different and give guests a choice to stay together as a group of family and friends, or to have a more private bush experience as a couple.
Lelapa which means “family” in the local language Tswana and it means exactly that. It has the spirit and comfort of being at a home and is the Lodge where we allow guests of all ages to stay. Ideal for family getaways with the children.
Situated on a hillside looking out over the reserve, the twelve luxury suites that comprise the Lodge blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. The architecture is open with grand volumes, yet still feels homely and natural. There is complimentary wireless in the reception , as well as both an indoor and outdoor dining area. You can relax in the bar lounge, or wander outside to take in the night sky and star gaze from the verandah.
Each of the luxury suites has its own private plunge pool and what we call a Gym-in-a-Basket, which is 2 x 1kg dumbbells, 2 x 3kg dumbbells, exercise mat, and core strengthener ring for those who want to work out while on vacation. The suites are all air-conditioned for your comfort in summer and fitted with a fireplace and electric blanket for the more cold winter months. There is also an international adaptor, hairdryer, insect repellant, safe and mini-bar for your convenience.
Kopano which means “small gathering” in Tswana comprises only four suites with a beautiful common area offering an intermit and private experience.
There is both an indoor and outdoor dining area for you enjoy, as the weather determines. Relax in the library lounge, indoor lounge with roaring fireplace, or outdoor lounge area and boma.
