Madikwe Game Reserve: South Africa’s Best-kept Secret
About a five-hour drive, or short charter flight, from Johannesburg lies one of South Africa’s least known game reserves: Madikwe. Its Kalahari grasslands and woodlands are surprisingly full of animals, a haven for the Big 5 and endangered wild dog. Unique desert specialists like brown hyena and the rare aardwolf also thrive here. Madikwe offers fantastic family-friendly South Africa vacation ideas, incredible game viewing and exquisite safari lodges. A selection of romantic retreats and honeymoon suites also make it a great choice for couples.
