Set on a hilltop amongst huge boulders and age-old Tamboti trees, the lodge is situated in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, traversing over 75,000 hectares of true untamed Africa, where the plains teem with wildlife and the endangered wild dog roam freely.
10 luxurious, spacious glass-fronted Suites are located at the Main Lodge. Room facilities include a living room with a huge slate-clad chimney which leads into the peaceful bedroom from where it’s possible to lie and gaze in wonder as herds of wandering animals make their way to the watering hole.
Little Madikwe Hills boasts a 2-bedroom Private Villa with its own game drive vehicle and game ranger, as well as a personal butler and chef to take care of your every need! A diverse wine selection, gourmet kitchen and entertainment center complete the picture. Two additional standard suites can also be reserved to form a completely private camp, which accommodates up to 8 guests. A certain luxury is being able to set your own meal and game-drive times, making this the ideal exclusive family escape.
The lodge facilities include a reception area, lounge area, bar, dining room, traditional boma, wine cellar, library with free Wi-Fi access, curio shop. swimming pool and viewing deck overlooking the waterhole.
Along with a warm and friendly atmosphere, Madikwe Hills offers you the highest standards of service and fine cuisine accompanied by a superb selection of wines.
During your stay at Madikwe Hills, you will explore the wonders of the bush in state of the art open game vehicles with bucket seats and fold-down armrests ensuring your optimum safety and comfort. Knowledgeable and professional rangers conduct early morning and late afternoon, or evening, game drives in search of Africa’s big game and smaller wildlife.
On Morning Game drives, should you be feeling energetic, you may choose to experience an up close and personal glimpse of the African bush on foot with a gentle bushwalk through the bush back to the Lodge. This experience provides exceptional close encounters with the smaller inhabitants of this wilderness.
Madikwe Game Reserve is home not only to the Big Five of Africa (Lion, Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino and Leopard), but also to a wealth of over 66 mammal species, including the rare African Wild Dog, as well as Cheetah, Eland, Kudu, Giraffe and a range of more than 300 resident and migratory species of birds.
Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for the ultimate luxury African safari experience.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
