Tucked away in the far north of South Africa is a 75,000 hectare, malaria-free wilderness inhabited by a profusion of species from Vervet monkeys to Leopard and – of course – the odd very fortunate human. Madikwe is widely acknowledged as being one of the finest conservation areas in Africa. The sheer, unadulterated wilderness of this place is breathtaking, as is this remarkable lodge – crafted from an exquisite palate of rich woods, raw stone and soft muted tones. Elegantly proportioned suites offer individual rim-flow pools, sweeping wooden decks and private outdoor showers. Guest facilities are of the highest quality whilst service is attentive and warm, never intrusive. Designer dining is of the highest standard and a team of Chef’s prepare gourmet dishes for guests who dine within the plush surrounds of the elegant dining room, al’fresco beneath a million stars for those glorious African evenings, or in the privacy of their beautifully appointed rooms.
