Madikwe Game Reserve Safari, Vacations & Wildlife Experiences


  • See the young lions on your Madikwe Game Reserve safari.

The Madikwe Game Reserve is very unique. Situated on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in North West South Africa not far from the border with Botswana, this reserve did not exist prior to 1991.  It was decided for economic reasons to convert low-yield cattle farmland to a high yield conservation area. This was called Operation Phoenix Madikwe. Herds of breeding animals were relocated here and now consist of all the major game animals one would wish to see on a South Africa vacationi. There are in total around 10,000 animals and 60 different species. In addition, there are 350 species of bird life. The reserve is now the 5th largest game park in South Africa and ideal for South Africa safaris.

This malaria-free game reserve has 30 lodges located within the park plus additional lodges immediately outside. The reserve consists of open grasslands and bushveld plains.
