Jamala Madikwe has a classic style that is strong enough to match the wild beauty that lies underneath. Jamala Madikwe is in the Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of Southern Africa, which is easy to get to by both air and road.

At Jamala Madikwe Lodge, the best safari experience is built on personalised service and attention to detail.

The luxurious Jamala Madikwe Lodge is built from rich woods, rough stone, and in soft, muted tones. It is set under the branches of old leadwood trees. The lodge is run by its owners, who want to make sure your stay is unique and memorable.

The Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa is home to many different landscapes, from the jumbled hills of Tshwene Tshwene to the hills that suddenly rise from the flat northwestern plains near the Botswana border.

Erosion over millions of years has changed Madikwe’s rocks and soils into a complex foundation on which a wide range of plants and animals can grow. Geological processes have been going on for billions of years, and these processes are still going on today.

The climate, which changes a lot from one part of the Park to another, is another thing that affects the types of plants that grow in different parts of Madikwe. The Park’s major types of veld are:

Mixed bushveld, Kalahari bushveld, Arid sweet bushveld and Other turf thornveld.

At the luxury boutique safari lodge Jamala Madikwe organic glamour and luxurious accents work together to create a unique and elegant style. Tradition and oddness come together in a way that makes for an atmosphere that can’t be matched.

Your African safari will give you a lot of information about Madikwe Game Reserve’s varied landscape and the best way to see animals.

Under the African sky, you can eat award-winning food or spend a peaceful day at the Jamala Madikwe Royal Spa.

Activities

Enjoy game drives every day in the beautiful Madikwe Game Reserve, which is free of malaria. Expert guides take you on morning and evening game drives every day so you can see the wildlife in the Madikwe area.

Madikwe Game Reserve is an old place where nature shows its age-old play of life and death between hunters and those who are hunted. Jamala Madikwe is right in the middle of the reserve’s treasure trove of animals. It is filled with the sounds of birds and mischievous Vervet monkeys.

The lodge offers amazing safari experiences, such as seeing the “big five” and “super seven.” The phrase “Big 5” meant the five most dangerous animals to hunt in Africa. The word is still used today, but it doesn’t mean “to hunt” anymore. The extremely rare Wild dog and Cheetah are also part of the “Super 7.”

At Jamala Madikwe, you can experience this diverse and rich ecosystem with over 130 mammal species and 300 bird species, not to mention the vast landscapes of plant life that keep the whole reserve alive and healthy for all its inhabitants.

Twice a day, at dawn and dusk, you go on game drives. You will see the sunrise and sunset under the amazing African sky while seeing animals every day. Most game drives last between three and four hours, and they are all included in the rates.

At Jamala Madikwe, there are three outstanding game rangers. They have FGASA qualifications, advanced rifle skills, and first aid training. These qualifications make sure that guests have a great time and learn a lot about the game. The safety of guests is top priority. Madikwe Game Reserve makes sure of this by giving all guides ongoing training and monthly evaluations.

The owners make sure there are two safari vehicles every day, and depending on the size of the group, each vehicle can hold up to six people. Private cars can be rented for an extra fee if they are available.

Unforgettable dining experiences await in the outdoor boma dining area, or you can enjoy a romantic dinner in the watchtower, or even a star lit pool deck dinner overlooking the Jamala Madikwe waterhole

At the deck bar you can enjoy some gin tasting while looking at the waterhole and the red skies over the savannah plains.

One of the best ways to spend an afternoon at Jamala is to sit on the top of the watchtower and watch beautiful scenes of nature at work. On top of the tower, there are many places to sit that give you a clear view of the Dwarsberg mountain range. The watchtower is a great place to take a nap in the afternoon, sip champagne, or have a private romantic dinner for two.

The Jamala Madikwe spa is a quiet place where your mind, body, and spirit can get back in touch with nature. A place where you can forget about your worries and feel calm. The custom spa menu has signature treatments that are only available at Jamala. The Jamala Spa is proud of its South African roots.
