The lady Kat I dealt with was excellent, she provided us with various options and changed the trip round to meet out requirements and dates.

Katherine was just the most helpful and patient lady and guided us both through all of the possibilities so well. She really made it feel easy and are very grateful for her expertise and assistance

Madikwe is one of those places that just gets into your skin, and makes you want to keep coming back. The dry red earth; the thick acacia woodland, and towering inselbergs (rocky outcrops) combine to create a dramatic landscape for safaris. The reserve is also packed with wildlife, including rare wild dogs and the elusive and endangered black rhino...

Madikwe is only about four hours from Johannesburg, so it's more accessible than other National Parks and there are around 40 of lodges in the reserve, but it's still one of the best safari experiences you can have, and great value for money. Get involved in the planning of your own Madikwe safari online. Mix and match lodges to create a safari that suits your style and budget.

With so much to do and see, planning a Madikwe safari can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
