Madikwe Nature Reserve.(Malaria Free)
3 night, 2 day Madikwe safari experience.(Malaria Free)
Guests can take comfort in the fact that they are choosing a safe and reliable transport service, conducted by knowledgeable, friendly and licensed drivers. The trip from Johannesburg usually lasts 4-5 hours to Madikwe, passing through the northern part of the country near to the Botswana border.
Our destination is famously known as One Of Malaria Free Nature Reserve and being the most intimate park in South Africa as only Pre-authorized guests are allowed in. Here the public are not allowed to embark on self-drives, so only booked guests may enjoy the abundance of scenery and wildlife for their own leisure. Spending 2 nights and 3 days here will surely return a multitude of memories and sense of awe – this wilderness is a modern South African success story that brings conservation to the fore.
Day 1: Gauteng – Madikwe
Leaving the metropolis of Johannesburg, our journey to Madikwe Game Reserve takes around 4-5 hours. We will arrive in the afternoon and briefly get to settle in at the lodge before we depart on our first real Madikwe encounter – a game drive with a qualified ranger. This Big 5 reserve offers many surprises with its exciting wildlife count so we will spend a few hours enjoying the surroundings before returning to the lodge after dark where a sumptuous dinner awaits us.(DINNER INCLUDED)
Day 2 & 3: Full day in the Reserve
Today we’re up early, before dawn, where we will enjoy a quick tea or coffee before heading out on our second game drive. This is an ideal time in which to observe animals as they are most active during this period, getting in some good viewing before the midday heat sets in.
Breakfast awaits us upon our arrival back at the lodge. The following several hours will be spent at your own leisure – relaxing by the pool, immersing yourself in a good book or just enjoying the rest of the lodge’s facilities. After a hearty lunch and a bit more relaxation, we embark on our late-afternoon game drive which may continue beyond dusk, with the day invariably ending over a good dinner and reminiscing about the day’s sightings.(ALL MEALS INCLUDED)
Day 4: Madikwe – OR Tambo Airport / Pretoria
Another early start sees us embarking on our final game drive through the reserve, hopefully with some memorable sightings to round off our stay. Upon returning to the lodge we will enjoy breakfast before departing the lodge and Madikwe. (BREAKFAST INCLUDED)
