Madikwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa
Built into the boulders and trees of a rocky outcrop in Madikwe Game Reserve, Madikwe Hills beautifully blends rustic charm with effortless opulence. From the imprints of tree roots in the walls, to the tamboti-beamed thatch roofs, we love the romantic back-to-nature ambience this lodge invokes.
Each of the 10 suites adopts an industrial chic vibe, featuring a spacious living area with a cosy fireplace, a double bed overlooking the never-ending plains, and a luxurious terrace with a plunge pool. We love each suite’s secluded ambience – you’ll feel like the only people for miles.
Families will love the Little Madikwe villa. Nestled close-by to the main camp, this indulgent villa consists of two en-suite units, joined together by a private living room, dining room, and a bigger pool. The whole family will certainly feel like royalty with the private chef, ranger, and butler.
The main lounge and dining areas are just as gorgeous, using their natural surroundings to create a homely yet naturally beautiful space. If you’re a foodie, you’ll definitely enjoy the variety of dining experiences on offer - from private dinners with your ranger, to dining under the stars in the boma, sumptuous gourmet food is always on the menu.
You’ll need to book walking safaris in advance and arrange a permit, but we think the amazing sights are worth it.
