Within the Madikwe Game Reserve, Madikwe Safari Lodge’s three luxury camps – Lelapa, Kopano, Dithaba – are ideally located to appreciate the vastness and diversity of its landscapes and wildlife.
Lelapa (meaning ‘family’ in Setswana) welcomes guests of all ages, with family-friendly accommodations and specially-planned children’s activities to keep young ones entertained and parents relaxed.
While the lodge epitomises contemporary African design, its atmosphere is luxuriously laid-back, with each of its 12 Suites including a private lounge, viewing deck and plunge pool. Four Family Suites also have a second children’s bedroom, stocked with toys and games.
Be spoilt to your hearts content by the staff of Lelapa Lodge and be enthralled by what it has to offer for families. – Andile Isaac Sibanda, Concierge Executive
Kopano (meaning ‘small gathering’ in Setswana) is influenced by an African design aesthetic and, comprising just four luxury Suites, reminds of a traditional homestead.
Booked on an exclusive basis, it’s well suited to a get-together of friends or family. Each Suite’s private lounge, viewing deck and plunge pool provide some personal space, while still enjoying the attentive service of the main lodge – and are ideal positions from where to spot the wildlife coming by.
Dithaba (meaning ‘mountain’ in Setswana) has just four luxury Suites positioned overlooking the reserve. Each is a couple or solo traveller’s retreat; or together, an exclusive home base for friends or family while on safari.
The lodge’s construction, incorporating natural design elements, is uncomplicated, and the Suites – with their own lounges, plunge pools, and viewing decks – provide space to unwind and watch the animals out on the plains.
