Big 5 Safari in the Malaria Free Madikwe Game Reserve
Madikwe Safari Lodge is situated in one of South Africa’s largest malaria-free wildlife sanctuaries – the Madikwe Game Reserve. The lodge consists of three different camps. Lelapa is ideal for families with children under 16 while Kopano and Dithaba are for adults and couples only.
All rooms have welcome safari extras like private plunge pools, outdoor showers and your own viewing deck over the reserve. Madikwe Safari Lodge is in the eastern portion of the reserve, which has the lowest vehicle density of all.
Children are especially well catered for: there is a dedicated late-morning kids’ game drive and little ones staying at Lelapa Lodge can undertake age-appropriate bush orientation courses, ‘bug CSI’, spoor and dung tracking, star gazing and messing about in the kitchen to make their own pizzas or delicious baked goods. The ecology house, which is home to a collection of skulls, horns, hides and so on, will teach children more about the age-old rhythms of nature.
Nkorho Bush Lodge is situated on a private concession in the Northern part of The Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The lodge takes full advantage of its pristine location and game drives a bush walks are a treat.
