It was quite a challenge narrowing them down! But here they are…
1. Private and personal safari experiences
A limit on the number of vehicles per sighting and guests per game drive minimizes encounters with other people and provides front-row seats to the wildlife viewing. Led by highly-skilled MORE Guides (FGASA-accredited), you’re guaranteed to get within close range of Africa’s rare, curious and impressive creatures – including all of the Big Five.
2. It’s easy to reach from Johannesburg
Madikwe Game Reserve is an easy-going 4.5-hour drive from Johannesburg. If driving isn’t an option, fly directly into Madikwe Eastern Airstrip on one of the daily scheduled flights. From here, complimentary road transfers link you to Madikwe Safari Lodge’s Lelapa, Dithaba and Kopano lodges, 5 minutes away.
3. Guest experiences that pull out all the stops
Besides spectacular wildlife viewing, as a guest of Madikwe Safari Lodge, you are in for a host of other treats… Surprise coffee, pancake, and sundowner safari stops; private bush dinners; spa treatments in the tranquility of your private Suite’s deck; shared fire-side boma feasts… Signatures of the MORE collection of guest experiences.
4. It has a ‘safari home-from-home’ feel for families
Lelapa Lodge, on this malaria-free reserve, is a favourite of families for its Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Safari Club. Accommodation, meals, and activities are all taken care of for the best time they’ll have (and relaxed time you’ll have!) in the bush. The Eco House is central to the action, where kids discover through having fun.
5. It’s also a romantic retreat for couples
Kopano and Dithaba lodges offer more exclusivity if you’re looking for ‘just the two of us’ time. Each lodge includes four individual, ultra-luxurious Suites and their private views give you the impression of being the only people for miles and miles… The experience is carried through to the safaris, with just 6 guests to a vehicle.
