Madikwe: Where Wildlife Flourishes

Since joining Madikwe Safari Lodge last year, I have been treated to some truly incredible wildlife sightings.

The abundance of animals in this reserve has always blown me away – impala, zebra, wildebeest, elephants, giraffe – the list goes on. It also includes some slightly more rare and sought-after animals.

In my first week I had already completed the checklist of the Magnificent 7, namely, the Big 5 as well as cheetah and African wild dog. Any guide will know that all of the above can be challenging to find, but when the bush spoils us, it doesn’t stop!

The quality of the sightings is truly incredible as well, like witnessing a dominant male lion completely take charge at feeding time, showing everyone else around that you do not interrupt the king while he is filling his belly. The vocals as well as the intensity of this were amazing, and gave everyone on my vehicle a proper rush (including myself).


Madikwe encompasses 75 000 hectares of unspoiled land where wildlife flourishes. I get to meet amazing people from all over of world, near and far. It’s a place where my heart is always full!

Come and see for yourselves!
