Madikwe Game Reserve
Madikwe is a vast northern wonderland offering an incredible abundance of species that perfectly compliments WildEarth’s home base at Djuma and our forays into the diversity of the Cape. We began broadcasting from the Madikwe Game Reserve in September 2022 and have not looked back! Our naturalists love the sheer abundance of animals, the bird diversity and the astonishing array of species that roam this glorious wild place.
Madike Game Reserve is an unforgettable African safari experience, crafted just for you. Unparalleled game viewing and sumptuous luxury await you in the selection of safari lodges, as the on-the-ground team guides you to your perfect destination. Indulge in opulent accommodation, enjoy family getaways and rustic wilderness hideaways.
Madikwe Game Reserve covers 80 000 hectares of spectacular African landscape, ranging from the Dwarsberg mountains in the south to the Inselbergs in the west and the Marico River in the east, with vast open plains in between.
Here, the famous Big 5 – lion, buffalo, leopard, elephant, and both black and white rhino – roam, along with giraffe, African wild dog, brown and spotted hyena, and cheetah. The density and diversity of Madikwe Game Reserve’s natural treasures must be seen to be believed. Large herds of elephants, towering giraffes, bounding springboks and curious, cackling hyenas fill the vast, open plains. This is picture-book Africa, as you dreamed it would be.
Madikwe Game Reserve’s location, close to the edge of the Kalahari Desert, ensures a truly diverse game-viewing experience. A malaria-free area, the reserve is a perfect choice for families and groups, with most safari lodges offering family-friendly accommodation options.
