Luxury bush break

Posted May 10, 2015 on Hotels
Excellent location. Obliging staff. Good food. Staff from the General Manager to the cleaning staff made out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Fortune the game ranger was not only very knowledgable about the sightings but went out of his way to accommodate us.

Lodge mit dem gewissen Etwas

Posted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels
Wir verbrachten 3 Nächte dort. Wir schätzten die Ueberblickbarkeit der Anlage, den Ausblick auf den Fluss (inkl. der Tiere, die sich vorsichtig auf der gegenüberliegenden Flussseite zum tränken begaben) sowie die sehr aufmerksame Bedienung durch das Hotelpersonal. Das Essen war zu unserer Ueberraschung für einen solchen Ort insgesamt sehr gut und auch für Europäer schmackhaft. Die jeweils früh morgens und am frühen Abend stattfindenden Safaris waren u.a. aufgrund der professionellen Begleitung unseres Rangers ein tolles Erlebnis.

Summer Break

Posted Jan 11, 2013
During our annual holiday in South Africa, we decided to take a quick break to the Madikwe River Lodge. It was a great experience with the most friendly and accommodating staff I have ever met at any resort/hotel. The facilities was great (luxury in the bush) and the game viewing was excellent. The knowledge of our guide and his willingness to share it, is commendable. Really a great place for a short break!

It was a good night stay though I felt having a bit lack of the African Safary luxurious touch I usually had staying with some other Madikwe's Lodges. The best thing about this Lodge was the warmth and family atmosphere. Siitting righ at the balcony of the challet having a good coffee while reading a book, the sound of the River flow was extremely amazing and the River rounding the compound is truly beautiful. I would say I need some 2 night stay or more to fully enjoy the Nature. Safari trip was very good with a nice Ranger on a good vehicle (my best one so far). Hotel staff was friendly. Foods were good. I'm satisfy as my guest was amazed. I enjoyed having a large screen bath with no curtains here (hoping to see a Tarzan in the jungle out there), something quite different than what I used to experience. Go for it if you want a truly nature safary trip.
