Unforgettable Journey - Activities
Madikwe Game Reserve, North West Province

One of the most incredible ways to explore the African bush is on a game excursion in a specialised safari vehicle.

Wildlife Game Drives

One of the most incredible ways to explore the African bush is on a game excursion in a specialised safari vehicle. Among the diverse creatures of the bush are the Big Five - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard plus the endangered wild dog and cheetah.

Bush drives are conducted twice a day - early in the morning and late afternoon - when wildlife activities are at peak. On an afternoon safari, refreshing cocktails are sipped at a scenic spot enabling you to witness the magical African sunset. On the ride back to the Royal Madikwe, the nocturnal activities of the bush creatures unravel.

Bush Walks

Scenic road or air transfers can access the lodge. Safari walks are the best way to explore the bush and its diversity. The pace of the walk is dependent on the fitness levels of each walker. The focus is on the smaller creatures of the bush including insects, birds and the lush vegetation. Close encounters with bushveld roamers may also be made on walking trails. Game guides are more than keen to share their intimate bush knowledge about the medicinal uses of the diverse flora.

Kids Activities

Children of all ages are welcome at the Royal Madikwe and they can enjoy a number of fun activities. The programme is developed to entertain kids in between morning and afternoon game drives. Activities include arts and crafts, face and t-shirt painting, bush baking, doughnut decorating, animal tracking, African beading and African storytelling.

Dining

The menu at the Royal Madikwe features sophisticated and wholesome goods. Each dish is inspired by the diverse cultures of Africa. Game dishes can be savoured to tantalise the taste buds and awaken the sense for the ultimate bush dining experience. The Royal Madikwe strives to cater to all dietary requirements and tickle each palette with their unique and flexible menu.
