Our Guide to South Africa

Madikwe and the northwest

Madikwe Game Reserve is the perfect introduction to the African bush. The 75,000 acre reserve is malaria free and is the site of the world’s largest wildlife trans-location project. Its diverse geology and range of habitats allow a variety of species to flourish, including Africa’s ’big five’.

Just a 90-minute flight from Johannesburg, the reserve offers a range of excellent lodge accommodation, from the exceptionally family-friendly to romantic honeymoon retreats and those with wonderful bush spas.

One of the largest parks in South Africa, but one of the lesser-known, Madikwe makes for a more private and exclusive safari experience, with fantastic game-spotting opportunities. See the 'big five' here - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, along with some of the rarer animals, such as the endangered African wild dog.
