Madikwe Hills, accommodating up to 24 guests
in vast, well-spaced and utterly private glass-fronted suites scattered across the hillside, camouflaged by tamboti-beamed thatch roofs. Wooden walkways lit by hurricane lamps criss-cross the grounds and connect the secluded suites to the central open-plan lounge, bar, wine cellar, library and dining area up the slope, where cooling fans make slow rotations and the giant twisted trunks of leadwood trees hold up the vaulted ceiling.
The total dedication and passion of the team at the Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge ensure that every guest departs with a memory of an African safari never to be forgotten. From outstanding wildlife holidays to unforgettable safari weddings and honeymoons – Madikwe Hills offers the complete adventure in South Africa.

A cosy living room with huge slate-clad chimney (perfect to snuggle up in front of an open fire on cooler nights) leads into the peaceful bedroom with a gigantic pillow-strewn four-poster bed draped in generous layers of muslin, from where it’s possible to lie and gaze in wonder as herds of wandering animals make their way to the watering hole.
