Royal Madikwe Luxury Safari Lodge comprises of 2 Luxury Suites, the Honeymoon Suite, a Premier Royal Villa and The Emperor Suite. All suites, except The Emperor Suite are spacious with air-conditioning, elevated viewing decks, private plunge pools, indoor and outdoor rain showers, and a cosy wood fireplace. The Emperor Suite is located on the second level of the main Clubhouse and offers an elegant sunken lounge with spectacular views of the waterhole, exclusive use dining space and a TV area for the children.

Royal Madikwe has a contemporary rustic charm that combines organic textures and materials underpinned by clean lines and a soothing, colour-punctuated palette. The public areas, lounge and dining room are perfectly composed for comfortable, intimate gatherings. But you will more likely find yourself on the elevated sun deck, soaking up the splendour of the surrounds.

A day at Royal Madikwe unfolds with an early morning game drive incorporating a brief stop for a light snack, then back to the lodge for a gut-expanding brunch. The next few hours are spent at your leisure, then a glorious Lunch preceding the evening’s game drive.

Royal Madikwe has settings for extraordinary dinners: outdoors under the stars, or indoors, a glamorous chandelier to highlight the immaculately presented melange of African and contemporary flavours. Children of all ages are also welcomed at Royal Madikwe, and a personalised programme is designed on arrival according to their ages and interests.

With its postcard-perfect African bushveld surrounds, regal standards of luxury, quintessential A-list service and welcoming atmosphere, The Royal Madikwe stands as the jewel in the crown of South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve.
