The Camp



Madikwe Safari Lodge

Madikwe Safari Lodge radiates the warmth and vibrant energy of the rich red soil on which it is built. Although décor is elegant, fresh and contemporary, every brick, stone and column is almost a direct extension of the earth. Trees are as much a part of the Lodge’s interiors as they are of the untouched bushveld.Why not indulge in a spa treatment, or find a good book in the library? Laze by your poolside, or simply sit and take in your favourite view? Madikwe is a place for romance. Engagement, wedding or honeymoon, we know that these moments are never forgotten. 


Lelapa literally means ‘family’, and this is exactly how we want you to feel - there is no restriction in terms of age or generation. Each of the 12 Suites is spacious, comfortable and ever respectful of the natural environment beyond. Indoor and outdoor showers, private plunge pool and wood- burning fireplace are just some of the added creature comforts to enhance Mother Nature’s subtle signature.
