Madikwe River Lodge
Located in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, Madikwe River Lodge owns a tranquil ambience, situated alongside the flow of the Groot Marico River. Surrounded by beautiful wilderness, guests are free to drink in the many bird and animal species that populate the area, including the big 5. The lodge is very much child friendly, with cots available on request and 6 family rooms.
There are 16 rooms in total, divided between 1 suite, 3 double rooms, 6 twin rooms and 6 family rooms. All accommodation is en-suite, with private viewing decks that overlook the river. The split level rooms provide guests with ceiling fans to stay cool and the 1 suite features the luxury of an outside shower and separate lounge area.
One of the lodge's biggest draws is its incredible game viewing. The surrounding 75,000 hectares of African sand veld provides some exciting wildlife sightings, including all of the members of the big 5 and over 300 bird species. The lodge provides facilities for weddings and small conferences, secluded and intimate; the property works well for both. The lodge also includes a lounge area, mini bars and boma area.
