Accommodation in Madikwe is mainly in luxury private game lodges rated 5 and 4 stars and is of the highest standard. The Reserve borders Botswana and is located in North West Province, 90 kilometers north of Zeerust, about 3.5 hours' drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the few game reserves in southern Africa, the only place in Africa where Springbok and Kalahari Gemsbok meet naturally. The Reserve is a unique family friendly malaria-free safari destination catering for all holiday and business travel. A special feature of Madikwe lies in its unique location, a transition zone on the edges of the Kalahari, where a number of rare species occur naturally, and the bushveld. The climate is generally mild to hot, but winter nights can be cold.
