Travel Blogs from Madikwe Game Reserve

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!

Having a Day Off

A travel blog entry by jcastellan

They were far from active, so we didn't stay long. Not far from them we ...

... Leopard one day. We both highly recommend coming to this place - the owners of The Bush House - Sue and Gordon - are such amazing people and the staff here are wonderful. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back once we re-fill our bank accounts back home.

Since the reserve is on the border of Botswana we have decided to go spend a night there and check out one more country of Africa before heading down the coast to Cape Town. Botswana here we ...

Trythings and Talkmore

A travel blog entry by ianandsuejones


... and the General Manager, Talkmore. The Bellboys name was Geoff. We are now back in South Africa and on safari in Madikwe Reserve. This is a paradise in the northern part of South Africa abutting Botswana. Impodimo Lodge is amazing. Our chalet overlooks the waterhole which receives frequent visits from our four legged friends. We have had a congress of baboons, a herd of elephants and a tower of giraffe in the first two days come to visit. In between this ...
