Tucked away in a grove of mopane trees this safari lodge offers its visitors an unbeatable location close to incredible safari experiences. In 2016, after a devastating fire destroyed Mankwe Tented Retreat, the entire lodge was rebuilt from the ground up and reopened in 2021. Our architects have successfully merged the structure of the main area with the surrounding environment, carefully integrating natural materials with modern design elements such as clean lines, neutral colours, and soft lighting. The tented rooms exude a similar Scandinavian style with their sophisticated log cabin feel combined with canvas. In total, there are 10 tented rooms. The tents are built on raised wooden platforms, each with their own private viewing deck. Expansive bedrooms offer a configuration of two twins or a king-sized bed. Bathrooms are ensuite with a shower and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness through the canvas windows. Each room has a fan for cooling off during the sizzling summer months. The main area comprises a small swimming pool surrounded by wooden decking that flows through to various sheltered sections for relaxing and onto a dining area with the cosy boma adjacent. From here, a meandering wooden walkway winds its way to a second swimming pool complete with wooden decking, sun loungers and an intimate pool bar. Another enclave breaks away from the central area and leads to a small relaxation lounge and games/reading area. Eager safari-goers can tailor-make their own activity schedule. Most guests opt for full-day excursion into the Khwai River section of Moremi, and boat cruises through the Okavango Delta’s reed lined channels (at an added cost).

- Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge
Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge Luxury Safari Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve, North West Province. 1/11 Location 75,000 Hectare Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve, North West Province. DESCRIPTION: Set within 75 000 hectares of safari park, Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is situated on a rocky outcrop in the heart of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa. Ingeniously set amongst boulders and age-old Tamboti trees, the private game lodge is situated in the middle of Madikwe, giving visitors a huge game drive advantage over other lodges situated on the borders of the reserve and offers guests the most amazing South African safari adventure. Madikwe Game Reserve is home not only to the ‘Big 5’ of Africa (Lion, Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino and Leopard), but also to a wealth of over 66 mammal species, including the rare African Wild Dog, as well as Cheetah, Eland, Kudu, Giraffe and a range of more than 300 resident and migratory species of birds. Madikwe Hills boasts 10 supremely spacious and luxurious suites which are very hard to leave. 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. Throw open all the floor-to-ceiling windows and retreat to a sunbed in the shade of an acacia tree, or grab a towel and jump into your own personal plunge pool for the ultimate in relaxed game viewing – you’ll be amazed at what passes by just a hundred feet or so from your deck. Wooden walkways lit by hurricane lamps criss-cross the grounds and connect the secluded glass-fronted suites to the central open-plan lounge, bar, wine cellar, TV room 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. Traversing over 75 000 hectares, Madikwe Game Reserve is where the plains still team with game and the acacia savannah symbolizes a paragon of beauty. Madikwe Hills is in the middle of the Reserve, giving you a huge advantage on game drives. Wildlife can be viewed on game drives, walking safaris, and from the privacy of your suite deck. Explore the wonders of the African bush in state-of-the-art open game vehicles with bucket seats ensuring your optimum safety and comfort. Knowledgeable and professional rangers conduct early morning and late afternoon, or evening game drives in search of Africa’s big game and smaller wildlife. On morning game drives, should you be feeling energetic, you may choose to experience an up-close-and-personal glimpse of the African bush on foot with a gentle bush walk through the bush back to the Lodge. Dining options at this outstanding Madikwe lodge includes the main deck, which overlooks an active waterhole, the elegant dining room and the vastly popular open-air traditional boma.
