Region: North West Province, South Africa
Physical Address: Molatedi Gate Madikwe Game Reserve North West
The 75 000ha Madikwe Game Reserve lies in the extreme northwest corner of South Africa’s North West province, abutting the Botswana border close to the Kalahari Desert.
A mere four-and-a-half-hour drive from Johannesburg or a quick charter flight from OR Tambo International Airport gets you there.
The land on which the Madikwe Game Reserve now stands was formerly dotted with cattle and maize farms that were showing poor returns due to the unsuitability of the soil.
Following an independent feasibility study, the government of the time made a decision to claim the land for wildlife-based tourism purposes more sustainable of the remote region.
Madikwe Game Reserve operates as a three-way venture between the North West Parks and Tourism Board,the private sector, and local communities.
The Parks Board is responsible for setting up infrastructure and operational management, as well as identifying suitable sites for lease to the private sector for tourism-based developments and activities.
The private sector funds the construction of game lodges, which it then markets and manages. Lodge employees are drawn from surrounding villages.The success of this approach has made Madikwe a role model for similar joint ventures in South Africa.
Jaci’s is an easy four hour to four-and-a-half hour drive from OR Tambo International Airport. Allow us to arrange a private road transfer for you or you could simply take the self drive option. If you will be arriving by car, the quickest (and recommended) route from Johannesburg is to drive via Sun City, and then on to the Molatedi Gate in the south-western corner of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Please contact the lodge directly when passing Sun City for more specific directions should you require them, and to alert us
so that we can prepare for your arrival.
Please refuel at Sun Village / Zeerust as there is no fuel available inside the reserve.
Please remember that although the gates into the Madikwe Game Reserve close at 21h00, guests are not permitted to drive unaccompanied in the reserve after 18h00. Should you expect to arrive after 18h00, please make prior arrangements for a lodge escort, at a cost of R500 per escorted trip.
