The Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the largest game reserves in South Africa, covering some 75,000 hectare. The rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of game and the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. The reserve is situated against the Botswana border, 90 km north of Zeerust, just three hours’ drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, and is now one of South Africa’s prime safari destinations. It is very close to Pilanesberg National Park and the world renowned Sun City.

Madikwe is regarded as one of the finest conservation areas in Africa, offering the ‘Super 7’, adding cheetah and the endangered African wild dog to the already famous ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, both white and black rhino.  along with almost all the plains antelope species. Plus brown hyena, sable, eland, gemsbok, giraffe and large herds of plains game and plenty of birds.

The reserve is becoming ever-increasingly popular perhaps due to the fact that it is in a malaria-free zone, which makes it a popular destination for families travelling with small children. There are 30 lodges on the property, and six lodges in the private farms outside the main reserve.
