“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle

Our Guides take great pride in what they do, as well as in the environment around them. This attitude is what enables us to give the most genuine and un-spoilt view of Africa’s wildlife and landscapes as we venture out into the bush everyday.

It would be difficult to find a team of more enthusiastic guides who enjoy nothing better than starting and finishing each day out in the wild in search of animals big and small. Whether leopard or chameleon, rhino or dung beetle, they will share a riveting story and teach you something you never knew before.

We strive to give each and every guest an experience that they will never forget, and in the process hopefully to also create awareness of the need for conservation in Africa. We hope to share this really special place, and experience, with you.

“JP was our ranger, and he had an infinite amount of knowledge about the wildlife, in addition to being very courteous. Over the course of 3 days, we saw the Big Five animals, plus hyena, cheetah, and usual game like zebra and giraffe.”

Teachers. Guardians. Friends. Some have called the Madikwe Guides the equivalent of the Pied Piper!

A safari is so much more than The Big Five. These Guides have an interest in every creature – big and small.

“The Rangers and Trackers who accompanied/led our daily drives through the bush were friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable of the plant, bird and animal life throughout the reserve. Our most recent Ranger, Daniel (can’t remember his last name), was so passionate about the subject that it made what would normally be a rather boring lecture fascinating.”

The Madikwe Safari is never an ordinary safari!
