The Bush House
Madikwe,Madikwe Game Reserve - View on map
"My wife and I spent three nights at the Bush House and were thoroughly impressed. The staff is incredibly helpful and professional and the owners are warm and committed to their work. Madikwe is a great reserve and you are nearly guaranteed great spottings. However, there are other lodges on the reserve where you can easily pay double or triple the rate for "5-star" experience, which probably amounts to slightly more luxury pampering. The reality is that you will want to spend the majority of your time on the game drives or relaxing on the Bush House's lush lawn, its nice pool, or in its truly unique "Hide," all of which provide amazing views of the watering hole used by all sorts of game. At one point, we saw 35+ elephants watering and playing. During our six drives, we saw: cheetahs, lions, water buffalo herds, giraffes, white rhinos, elephants, zebras, oryx, and many other types of smaller game and antelope species, not to mention many birds. Do yourself a favor and book the Bush House!"

Impodimo Game Lodge
Madikwe,Madikwe Game Reserve - View on map
"We had the most amazing time at Impodimo, from the personal welcome on arrival to the fantastic private accommodation with wild animals walking outside the rear patio, to the great food and wine, with terrific staff - Impodimo is a "must do" destination. Jacques and his house staff worry over every detail, the food is excellent and the bar is full of really good wine - every guest is known by their first name and never an error occurred. Stewart, our Ranger, and Sam, our tracker, gave us the most personal, knowledgeable and exciting time on our morning and evening game drive. Never missed an opportunity to get up close and personal with all the animals. We saw all the Big 5 and many, many more - a spectacular experience. We cannot recommend Impodimo highly enough - an absolute 10 / 10!!! "

Royal Madikwe Luxury Safari Lodge
Madikwe,Madikwe Game Reserve - View on map
"We stayed in the villa as a family of 4 with two older children. The villa for size and facilities in it were as good as any in 20 years of regular safaris. The staff are lovely, really friendly and cant do enough for you. The food is good and plentiful. The wines could do with an upgrade BUT at this price point are perfectly acceptable. If you are going to choose Madikwe as a park then having stayed at other lodges in the park this is right up there at the top. Now here is the conundrum. My other family members are happy with general game viewing, i am massively interested in leopards. There was one sighting of a leopard in the four days we were here but by the time we queued to see it it was dark and it had disappeared. I didnt see my favourite animal (through no fault of our guide). I will choose other reserves in future where leopard sightings are much better however my family would be happy to stay here again. "
