The luxurious Madikwe River Lodge can be found settled upon the banks of the majestic Groot Marico River within the Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province. Surrounded by 75 000 ha of breath-taking scenery and tranquil acacia savannah, as well as offering up a range of superb facilities, Madikwe situates itself as the ideal spot for a game lodge getaway. Found only four and a half hours from Gauteng, and a mere 45 minutes by aircraft, it is conveniently located and easily accessible for both local and international visitors.
The lodge offers guests sixteen comfortable and secluded split-level thatched chalets, which surround the main lodge. Each of these luxurious chalets are decorated to ensure a rich African feel, with en-suite bathrooms, romantic outside showers and a full range of guest amenities. Each of the chalets also have a private wooden deck overlooking the stunning forest and gently flowing river, and a separate lounge.
A gorgeous outdoor Boma is located on a central island in the river, and can be accessed by a wooden bridge. Here, early morning breakfasts are served under the Acacia trees and leisurely, fine-dining diners are experienced under an expansive, sparkling African sky. Given its stunning location, Madikwe River Lodge is the ideal venue to host intimate wedding ceremonies and is also very popular for conferencing and incentive group packages.
