The Reserve

Madikwe Game Reserve is a malaria free Big 5 game reserve

Imagine over seven hundred and fifty square kilometers of untamed bushveld the way it was long before man interfered.

The Madikwe Game Reserve, situated in the North West Province of South Africa and run by the North West Parks and Tourism Board, reclaimed over seventy five thousand hectares of farmland and turned it into a wild life sanctuary that has become home to a wonderful variety of Africa’s animals.

Guests visiting Madikwe have the opportunity to witness this wonderful interaction of game in one of the finest conservation areas in the continent. The reserve has one of the largest elephant populations, all the predators, as well as the endangered wild dog, black and white rhino, buffalo and general plains game. Bird life is abundant.

Photographic opportunities are endless, not only from the raised vantage of your vehicle whilst on game drive but also from the shaded serenity of the garden. Our water feature and feeding log ensure a steady flow of wonderful bird life during the course of the day.
