Each day at this game lodge in Madikwe begins with an early morning game drive with refreshments en route and then breakfast back at camp, and ends with a sunset game drive and sundowners. The time in between is yours to rest and relax, sipping cocktails together on your special holiday. Guided bush walks are also offered, and you will certainly get quite a different perspective on your surroundings.
You could also spend time in your private pool, have a siesta or explore the lodge facilities. There is a beautiful art gallery and curio shop to visit or you can savour a chilled Chardonnay in the library. Enjoy a wellness treatment or simply find a good spot on the main deck and keep a look out for game at the waterhole.
