Malaria-free Madikwe is one of South Africa’s largest yet least known Big 5 reserves. Lying on the edge of the Kalahari and close to the Botswana border, the 75 000 hectare Madikwe Private Game Reserve is home to a rewarding mix of familiar savannah animals and desert specialists, delivering thrilling, diverse big game safaris that not only meet but regularly exceed visitor expectations.
There is a good chance of spotting Africa’s Big 5 on a Madikwe safari and it’s also one of the best places in the country to see the highly endangered African wild dog.What’s more, the lodges in Madikwe operate like one big family: expert guides keep in radio contact with each other to share sightings and because Madikwe is a private reserve, not only are there are no day-tripper crowds but your guide is permitted to go off-road for up-close sightings & to conduct spot-lit night drives.
Two (±3 hours) big 5 game drives daily, nature walks around the greater lodge area, all meals, teas, coffees, sundowner drinks and offcourse your accommodation. Please note: Beverages are not included at the Tau Game Lodge.
