A Madikwe Safari Lodge experience is like no other! It is beautifully designed, with an open main building and rustic decor. ALL the staff, from the manager down to the housekeepers and wait staff, go above and beyond to make sure every guest has the experience of a lifetime. All the guides are very knowledgeable and personable. Even when you are not out on a game drive, wildlife abounds. The poolside watering hole is a wonderful place to relax while still watching the incredible wildlife of the area. As a plus, Madikwe Safari Lodge is the only lodge in the reserve that is designed to accommodate families. Children need to be a certain age to go one the game drives, but if they are below the age limit, there are activities they can engage in while the parents are in the bush. Whether you are a single traveler, couple, or family, I highly recommend staying here!

My travel agent recommended this place as the perfect fit for my family of 5. Literally everyone we interacted with was so warm, welcoming, and genuinely focused on making our stay comfortable. We were never able to stump Mitchell with any question. He was so knowledgeable, and his passion and interest in animals was very evident. Joyce always welcomed us with a big smile and met our numerous requests for special drinks and menu substitutions, and even second portions of the incredibly delicious food! Amy never hesitated to help us out with logistics even letting us use the usb outlet in the office after we checked out. The housekeeping staff always kept our rooms tidy and organized. We especially loved the little touches such as the story cards, heating pads in the beds, and chalkboard to communicate. Olga, the masseuse, was very accommodating with our schedule, and even come at night since it was the only time that worked for us. This lodge truly put our comfort and enjoyment as their top priority. They welcomed us at the front with friendly waves each time we arrived back from a game drive. Food was very plentiful - and most importantly, so delicious! I don't think there was a need that wasn't met. Their watering hole had lots of animal visitors, and you can enjoy it sitting by the pool, or on their many lounge chairs that were available. Kids were also entertained at the Eco Lodge by Ceceila. My kids said she was very funny, and accommodating with her activities which ranges from crafts, to art, to cooking! Truly a gem of a lodge and I would highly recommend to anyone.

My family (husband and 9 yr old daughter) stayed at Madikwe Safari Lodge last week and absolutely loved it. Our game drives and sightings were plentiful and awesome (thank you, Borain!!) We saw all the big 5 except the leopard, but made up for it with some other fantastic sightings - including two gorgeous cheetahs and plenty of lions. The lodge itself is beautiful, food delicious, service impeccable. Special shout out to Cecilia in the Eco Lodge! Loved how great they are with kids, making it so special. Thank you, MSL!!!

We had an amazing time at Madikwe with our guide Borain- he was so thoughtful and engaging and taught us so much about the animals and birds. We saw multiple lions, rhino, elephant, giraffe, wild dogs, brown hyena and soooo much more. We loved our suite and loved returning from dinner to see that a thoughtful staff member had lit our fireplace. A wonderful safari experience.

Maxine safari lodge is the best place we’ve ever visited. The staff are absolutely amazing, it was impeccably clean and the views are out of this world. You can sit by the pool enjoying your favourite drinks and snacks watching the animals pass by the watering hole. The guides knowledge is outstanding and the game drives are varied to ensure you make the most of your time in the bush. An absolute must for everyone to visit!!
