Madikwe Safari Lodge - great!

A travel blog entry by luc.larocque

We are in the northern most part of South Africa, on the border of Botswana. At night, we can see the lights emanating from the border crossing. Since we are so remote, we had hardly any access to Internet. Therefore, this blog entry was created on the fly and covers three days.

The Madikwe Safari Lodge was quite impressive. Our room and amenities meet the five-star rating it deserves. We arrived ...

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 ...
