Beautiful setting, right next to a watering hole. While having lunch we saw elephant, kudu, zebra, impala, warthog, zebra and baboons coming and going. Rooms were beautifully appointed with a very comfortable bed. Food was excellent, we particularly like the lamb cutlets we had for dinner one night.

Okay”

The staff seem willing but they need more training if they want to excel in the service industry. The chef and game ranger are very good. However the manager is downright lazy with a &#39;couldn&#39;t care less &#39; attitude . This is unfortunate because it leaves the guests with the feeling that you have way over paid for your stay. Royal Madikwe is not 5 STAR. It&#39;s maybe 3 STAR but it is in a good location. I won&#39;t ever go back.

A great experience”

We stayed at Royal Madikwe for 3 nights and the main purpose of the visit was to see game and we had a superb guide on all 6 of our 3 hour rides in the park. The view from our room overlooked a water hole where game came to drink and that was excellent. Also the staff were excellent and most, but not over, attentive and helpful.
The only very slight issue was the lighting in the bathroom which looked good but could have been more practical. The owners are aware and I believe are addressing the issue.
