Located on the eastern side of the reserve, Madikwe Safari Lodge offers three distinct takes on the safari experience.
Guests enjoy family-friendly luxury at Lelapa camp; intimate luxury at Kopano; and exclusive privacy at Dithaba. Each has its own, unique appeal – and you get to choose your own adventure.
Lelapa (Setswana for “family”) has open guest areas for a social atmosphere aimed at families with young children. Kopano (Setswana for “small gathering”), meanwhile, offers a cosy, off-the-beaten-path environment with four private luxury suites. Finally, Dithaba (“hill”) provides luxurious hillside suites, positioned to provide perfect sunset views.
Activities at the lodge include game drives, a revitalising spa, and a unique, hands-on wildlife conservation experience. Guests have the opportunity to accompany Madikwe Game Reserve animal care specialists as they track and gather DNA samples from sedated rhinos as part of their conservation activities.
Madikwe Safari Lodge accommodates children of all ages at Lelapa Lodge.
