Makanyane Safari Lodge

Embrace Untamed Luxury at Makanyane Safari Lodge

Escape to the heart of the African wilderness at Makanyane Game Lodge, where untamed beauty and unparalleled safari luxury converge. Nestled within the pristine landscapes of the Madikwe Game Reserve, Makanyane Game Lodge invites you to embark on a journey of discovery, adventure, and indulgence.

Set on the edge of a ravine and overlooking a riverside forest. Makanyane accommodates no more than 16 guests in eight luxury suites. Each air-conditioned suite has an open-fronted lounge and private sundeck. Other features include a fireplace and overhead fans as well as a telephone, tea and coffee facilities, mini safe and a bar fridge.

The main lodge’s boma, an open-air dining area enclosed by reeds and trees, has views of the Marico River and it is here that you will enjoy delicious bush cuisine under a canopy of African stars.

Discover this wonderful malaria-free environment on the edge of the Kalahari with expert rangers in open-sided game viewing vehicles. Madikwe is Big 5 country and morning, afternoon and evening game drives are offered. For the more adventurous guests, the lodge also offers walking safaris. Viewing hides that overlook well-frequented waterholes and even open-air sleep-outs on a raised sleeping platform.

More than just a luxury safari, Makanyane Safari Lodge is a journey of discovery, a chance to reconnect with nature, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
