Jamala Madikwe

Our personal favourite!

Jamala Madikwe is an exceptional safari lodge situated in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.  Owner-managed and run, Jamala Madikwe Royal Safari Lodge offers an intimate bush experience, where personal service and attention to detail are the cornerstones of every waking moment.  The lodge successfully combines colonial style and African eccentricity in a delightful marriage of opposites.  Set in the pristine 75,000 hectare malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, Jamala Madikwe is the ideal place for that ultimate safari experience.  It’s also our personal favourite!

Madikwe Game Reserve is 75,000 hectares of raw African beauty, with plenty of things to see and experience.

Experienced guides will accompany you on morning and evening game drives, imparting their knowledge of the surrounding wilderness and its many inhabitants. From the Big 5 to over 300 species of bird (and everything in between), be prepared for a fantastic safari experience.

Accommodation at Jamala Madikwe consists of 5 free-standing villas, each an exercise in luxury and elegance, with the private rim-flow pool and sala, the walk-in dressing room, the fireplace in the lounge, the complimentary mini-bar – the list goes on and on.  Each villa also has a view of Jamala’s private waterhole, which attracts many thirsty animals and birds throughout the day.
