Madikwe Safari Lodge - great!

A travel blog entry by luc.larocque


... This made for great drive experiences.

In the resort, we were served exceptionally well. Although we cringe at the thought of being served, the staff had a very discreet approach. Among these members, Constance, our butler, took good care of us, particularly our two boys. We are very pleased with our stay at Madikwe and have ended our safari experience with a bang.

These safaris have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

A travel blog entry by pbandjgoround


... to even grab the video, I wanted to jump out of my seat. There in the grass were two HUGE mature male lions.

As our car pulled up, one of the males, appearing a bit more skiddish, sat up and looked at us. We all sat totally still and quiet. Once Coenie let us know he was okay with us there Patrick began rattling off photos and I whipped out ...

When the Mongooses Came to Visit

A travel blog entry by jcastellan


On my way to the hide this afternoon I came across a troop of mongooses. There are quite a few varieties, the type that come visit the lodge are banded mongoose. I stayed and watched them for a little while as they crawled all over each other and made little chirping like sound.
At the hide there was a little terrapin sitting on a rock in the dam sun baking- lucky for him there were no elephants around at this stage. Otherwise they would have disturbed him with ...
