Madikwe Safari Lodge | Weddings

“We recently held our wedding here, and what an amazing place with amazing people. We have been to Madikwe before, and knew that we would have an excellent experience but we never thought that they could be even better! They pulled out all the stops, from the rangers to the managers who helped us with every little detail and request – no matter how small.

What a wonderful friendly bunch of people in the most beautiful setting. All we can say is Thank You – Thank You – Thank You. And we look forward to coming back soon.”

- Warren and Nat Shaw
