    Hi, we are heading to Madikwe Bush House April 1st. The reviews are amazing and we are so excited. Trying to figure out the best way to get there from Johannesburg. Not sure we want to rent a car and drive ourselves. Any suggestions? Sincerely, Heidi

    Hi there. We have a total of six rooms at the lodge but normally take a maximum of ten guests so that it is small and intimate. However if one group takes out the lodge we take more than ten people on request.
