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.


Madikwe Bush House ǀ Luxury Accommodation in Madikwe Game Reserve

6 luxury suites, sleeping up to 12 people

Madikwe Bush Lodge is an old farmhouse that has been transformed into a 4-star safari lodge. It’s located in a malaria-free region on a private game reserve in the north-western corner of South Africa. The reserve is home to the Big 5 and a high concentration of antelope and plains games. Numbers of visitors and safari vehicles are restricted so you’re guaranteed an exclusive safari experience.

Madikwe Bush Lodge may be a luxury safari destination but it’ll feel like home after a short while. The staff are warm and welcoming and the facilities are comfortable and homely. Take off your shoes and kick a ball on the large lawn and enjoy a refreshing swim in a fabulous rock pool, or settle into a comfy couch in a cozy corner of the lounge to read a good book. 

Children of all ages are welcome at Madikwe Bush House. However, children 6 years and younger are not permitted on the open safari vehicles for daily game drives.
