From O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, guests are transferred to the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province for their South African safari. Madikwe is lion country, portending that guests will rarely return from a morning or afternoon game drive without having met these regal big cats. Leopard, elephant, cheetah, buffalo, wild dog and a motley crew of striking antelope mingle in this wilderness arena. For an intimate understanding of this African Eden, opt for a guided bush walk and get as close as nature intends.
Be it summer or winter, the lodge's pool is invariably inviting and affords unobstructed views of the bushveld.
