Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge Reviews
“We spent three perfect days in beautiful accommodation, with twice daily extended game drives, and truly wonderful food . The staff were so friendly (well trained for sure) and genuinely appeared to enjoy the guests, -nothing was too much trouble for them. The game drives were excellent and we saw some really interesting sightings e.g. wild dog puppies playing outside their den. The lodge is built on – and hidden- in and around a treed rocky outcrop with connecting wooden walkways, and all the “suites” were totally private. Ours looked onto a waterhole and what a pleasure it was to sit on our private deck (with its little splash pool) with a glass of wine, watching the elephant family come to bathe and drink water. Pure Bliss !” –Theresa W
“There are so many amazing things to mention about this place, from the little touches like a card in our room welcoming us back to the first class service and food. Our games drives were incredible with Roel our guide and Johannes our spotter finding everything from the Big Five down to a tiny dung beetle. I didn’t think things could have been better than our last visit but they were.” –293RDK
“we enjoyed a special weekend away with friends for hubby’s birthday-everything was great- from the service to the game viewing to the food. Staff went out of their way to accommodate our special needs and everything was done with a smile. We had an excellent and knowledgable guide and tracker team that made our game drives interesting. Saw all the big 5 and some! Rooms are lovely and spacious with an outdoor shower and plunge pool. This is our second time here and will def go back!” –Nicole C
