Madikwe Hills Safari Lodge is a set on landscape teeming with wildlife, breathtaking sunsets all in peaceful seclusion… If Madikwe sounds like the ultimate bush destination, it is. And there are few better places to realise the dream safari holiday than at Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge.Luxury is the order of the day, beginning in the ultra-deluxe, glass-fronted villa suites (there are ten in total). Think supremely elegant Afro-Chic decor, a private deck, plunge pool, outside shower, inviting sofas and cotton picot bedding. Under floor heating and a fireplace keep the winter chill at bay, while in summer ceiling fans and air-conditioning help you keep a cool head (and body!). The central guest area is also a hedonist’s paradise. The lounge is resplendent with old world glamour, while the bar is an enticing place for a chinwag with fellow guests and rangers.
Dinner is a silver-service affair, though you will likely be won over by the experience of dining alfresco in the boma. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are distinguished by a soulful fusion of wholesome and sophisticated flavours using the finest homegrown ingredients.
Opportunities for indulging yourself abound at Madikwe Hills, from relaxing spa treatments using indigenous botanical formulations to a private candlelit dinner on the deck of your suite. And all of this woven around exhilarating twice-daily game drives conducted by expert rangers. There is a downside to a stay here though, which is no subsequent safari experience is likely to live up to that at Madikwe Hills.
Wallow in luxury and live the Big 5 safari dream at the super-deluxe Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, located in South Africa’s scenic Madikwe Game Reserve.
