Situated in one of South Africa’s largest malaria-free sanctuaries, and an area that is imbued with rich history, you will find three exemplary lodges that are part of the family-owned and operated collection of MORE properties. Lelapa, Kopano and Dithaba are each intimately exclusive, simple yet sophisticated lodges that bear Mother Nature’s signature.
Boasting rich biodiversity, including the “Big Five” and over 350 bird species, guests can explore Madikwe Game Reserve’s broad mix of habitats with an exceptional field ranger by day. By night, retreat to secluded accommodations and savour sweeping views over the game-filled plains. Your adventure awaits!
24 person capacity. Children of all ages welcome.
Lelapa literally means ‘family’, and this is exactly how you will feel while staying here. You can expect warm hospitality, sublime comfort and compelling charm.
Each of the 12 luxury suites is spacious, comfortable and ever respectful of Madikwe’s natural environment.
There are many activities available for little ones, including family safari drives, bush orientation, bug CSI, dung tracking, track pack with Plaster of Paris, baking in the kitchen, pizza making in the boma, stargazing, game night and much more.
8 person capacity. Children of 16+ only.
Kopano directly translated means ‘small gathering’. The Lodge features just four suites, which all share a magnificent common area. Fine dining to the hoot of an owl, the roar of a lion or the crazed whoop of a hyena is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Each of the four spacious suites offer unsurpassed luxury and absolute privacy.
8 person capacity. Children of all ages welcome if lodge is booked exclusively.
Dithaba means ‘mountain’ in the local dialect and this Lodge enjoys a slightly more elevated location, which allows for spectacular panoramas over the open plains. Small groups and families love to make Dithaba their own while on safari.
Each of the four spacious suites offers luxury inspired by the surrounding savannah.
Expect international fare and local flavours to be expertly combined by the chefs. Note that the full range of dietary preferences are catered for. Bush breakfasts and dinners, as well as evening meals in the boma are also on offer.
Madikwe Game Reserve is 75,000 hectares of unique topography and breathtaking beauty that borders Botswana. The area is well known for having a low concentration of safari vehicles, which makes for a superior game viewing experience.
