Madikwe

Africa’s finest malaria free safari

Madikwe is pretty new as far as game reserves go: it was established in 1991 when 10,000 animals were relocated here from other parks. Today, it is home to 66 species of mammals, and roughly 33 bird species, all of which are to be seen in an area comprised of vast open grasslands, woodlands, and rocky mountains.

Madikwe is not just a Big Five park: it boasts the Super Seven! This mammal combination is the Big Five, plus African wild dog and cheetah. The birding opportunities are similarly exciting; significant birds you can encounter include ostrich, vulture, and the large kori bustard.
 
One special experience certainly not to be missed, is to arrive at the Madikwe Dam at sunset. This is when animals gather to drink from the water source, so you can sit quietly and watch them, marvelling at the wonders of the natural world as the sun slips beneath the horizon. An accompanying gin and tonic or glass of cold, dry white wine is a must!

Accommodation:
Molori
Molori means “to dream”, and indeed there will be moments when you stay here that you have to pinch yourself to know that it is real. Deep within the Madikwe Private Game Reserve, it’s a spectacular property surrounded by the Big Five but also by cheetah and African wild dog.
Accommodation:
Jamala Madikwe
Jamala Madikwe is one of Madikwe’s most exquisite safari lodges yet it also exudes a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere making guests feel that their have arrived at their own unique home in the bush.
Accommodation:
Madikwe Safari Lodge
The fact that the Madikwe Safari Lodge is divided between three lodges makes it an exceptionally flexible property, ideal for families and other groups to hire all or part of it for exclusive use, enjoying quality time together in a malaria-free environment.
Accommodation:
Moruku River House
South Africa’s malaria free Madikwe Private Game Reserve is one of Journeysmiths’ most popular destinations for family safaris. And when you stay at Morokuru River House - a private residence set on the bank of the Marico River - it gets even better still!
