Little Madikwe Private Camp

Discover Little Madikwe Private Camp

Little Madikwe Private Camp is a luxurious exclusive-use camp, situated in the heart of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa. Home to the Big 5 of Africa (lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino and leopard) the reserve is also home to 66 mammals species, including cheetah, giraffe and rare African wild dog, and a range of more than 300 resident and migratory species of birds.

The ultimate in privacy, Little Madikwe is a self-contained, 2-bedroom villa (±390m²) accommodating 4 to 5 guests. When you book the camp, you will enjoy your own game drive vehicle and game ranger, as well as a villa attendant to take care of your every need.
The villa particularly suits families and friends travelling together, and should you require more space, by reserving suites 9 and 10 at the adjacent Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, you will form a completely private camp, accommodating up to 8 guests, ideal for memorable celebrations with family and friends. As a family or group, you will be able to set your own meal and safari game drive times, making this the ideal, exclusive escape in Africa.
You can opt to spend the whole day out in the bush, stopping for a decadent picnic or dinner in a river bed, or you can split your day up with a morning game drive and an afternoon walk. Or you can simply spend the entire day lazing around the pool soaking up the sights and sounds of the surrounding African bush.
Children of all ages are catered for. The team will happily tailor-made activities to suit your children's ages, optimizing their stay in the bush and creating lasting memories. Babysitting services are also offered at an additional cost should parents wish to dine at the Main Lodge, attend the spa or enjoy a quieter game drive without the kiddies. For a little down time for the children, the reception room at Little Madikwe is also equipped with a satellite TV and DVD collection.
The Junior Rangers programme will allow your children to learn the different aspects of the bush through a range of fun exercises including touching elephant dung, looking at animal tracks, finding out HOW to track etc. The junior rangers will receive a booklet they can complete before or during the afternoon game drive. This is then marked, and each child will receive a certificate stating that they are Junior Rangers of Madikwe.
Each suite at Little Madikwe offers luxurious décor, outdoor showers, open-air decks, fireplaces and air-conditioning.
Your personally tailored gourmet experiences will be enjoyed in the beautifully decorated dining room or outside deck area. The food is prepared by the private chef in the state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen and you can even pick up a few culinary tips whilst you watch your meal being prepared. Your villa attendant will always be on hand to attend to your every requirement including assisting you to decide from the very diverse wine selection
