GAME DRIVES
Daily dawn and dusk game drives are recommended to ensure that you get the most out of your safari experience’s. The Big Five, (Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino, Lion and Leopard) are all present in Madikwe Game Reserve, as well as many species of birds, antelope and other mammals; including the endangered African Wild Dogs and Cheetah. Although we cannot guarantee sightings of specific animals, our experienced guides go out of their way to find the most special sightings for you to ensure you have an incredible safari experience!

Children under the age of 5 years are not allowed on scheduled Game Drives. Kiddies bumbles may be arranged and depend on availability at the time of arrival. These regulations are put in place to ensure your safety as this is our first priority given the dangerous nature of our environment.

BUSH WALKS
We invite you to enjoy the thrill and adventure of a bush walk with our highly qualified and experienced guides. Following in the footsteps of the animals allows you the opportunity to learn more about the smaller creatures as well as the flora that make up this unique wildlife reserve in Southern Africa.

Children under the age of 16 years may not partake in bush walks due to safety reasons and adults over the age of 60 years require a medical fitness certificate in order to participate. These regulations are put in place to ensure your safety as this is our first priority given the nature of our environment.

ZULU DANCING
The warrior tribe, as the Zulu’s are known, were mighty and fierce in their battles on the plains of Africa, using their dramatic tribal dance as a means to instill fear in the hearts of their enemies! Unlike the warrior men in the tribe, the Zulu women danced to show joy and love and when men and women came together they told a beautiful story….

Experience this incredible display of power and passion as you share their journey through a colourful cultural dance!

STAR GAZING
There are few things more romantic than the African night sky ablaze with sparkling lights hanging in the dark of night like diamonds.
Witness the awe inspiring constellations and clusters that form part of our solar system through the crisp lens of a GPRS Telescope that enhances what your eyes only hope to capture.

A wonderful story unfolds as you learn about the history and evolutionary formulation of these stellar phenomenon’s…Best viewing from February to late August, but this is available throughout the year if desired.
