Madikwe Bush House is a sprawling old farmhouse that has been lovingly transformed into a luxury safari lodge.
It is stylishly decorated yet retains much of its original charm and warmth. It’s a family-friendly safari destination in the prestigious Madikwe Game Reserve which is located in a malaria-free region in the north-western corner of South Africa.
Guests enjoy daily game drives in the 75 000-hectare which is home to the Big 5 as well as a strong population of wild dog. A special feature at Madikwe Bush Lodge is a unique underground hide that gets you up close to wildlife sightings at the busy waterhole in front of the lodge. A massive lawn and sparkling swimming pool provide hours of entertainment for the whole family.
