Madikwe Dithaba Lodge | Madikwe Game Reserve | South Africa
Madikwe Game Reserve
Located in the central-eastern region of Madikwe Game Reserve, also known as one of South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuaries, Madikwe Dithaba Lodge invites guests on a magnificent safari odyssey.
Covering over 75 000 hectares of wild plains, Madikwe Game Reserve is known for its rich biodiversity, diverse geology and flora habitats, and exceptional Big 5 sightings.
The malaria-free location of Madikwe Dithaba Lodge looks onto game-filled plains and the Dwarsberg Mountains from atop a hillside. Each luxury suite provides a couple’s romantic retreat or, together, an exclusive home base for a group of friends or family. Natural design elements invite the surrounding beauty into each luxurious haven of relaxation making for a truly restful getaway.
Home to the Big 5, cheetah, wild dog and more than 60 species of mammal, game drives in open safari vehicles promise to be an enthralling adventure. Head out each day at sunrise and again in the late afternoon with your expert ranger and tracker team to find the reserve’s many fascinating animals, both diurnal and nocturnal. After-breakfast join an armed ranger for a walk on the wild side. Bush walks are the perfect way to immerse yourself completely in the bushveld, getting up close to smaller mammals, birds, insects and learning about fascinating plant life. Your private guide will get to know exactly what you like and what your particular areas of interest are, tailor-making your safari to optimize the experience according to your preferences.
For a heart-throbbing thrill join in on a scheduled rhino conservation experience. Here you will participate in ‘notching’, gathering DNA samples from a rhino on the reserve, and experience conservation in action.
Roll up your sleeves to help out with More Community Trust’s development programmes, which empower local communities with access to basic education, childcare, skills development, and fresh water. This local community experience takes your safari to a new level of personal giving and touches your heart as much as those receiving your involvement. Learn about the vibrant culture and be touched by the African hospitality of the local community.
Evenings in the bush are undoubtedly made for stargazing. Astral safaris across the Southern African sky can form part of evening game drives or romantically set bush dinners, showing guests the magical enormity of the planets and constellations.
After so much excitement its time to sit back and be pampered by expert therapists in the comfort of your own suite. Massages and reflexology will leave you rejuvenated. All you need to do is relax and soak it all in.
