When planning a luxury safari, South Africa is a top of mind destination for many travellers.
But choosing which park or reserve to visit there can be a daunting prospect. According to luxury boutique safari specialists, Sanctuary Retreats, Madikwe Game Reserve is the cream of the crop, and the greatest private game reserve South Africa has on offer.
This beautiful and diverse African wilderness encompasses over 75,000 hectares of widely varying terrain. From rocky peaks, across open grasslands, to verdant valleys, each area, with its own distinctive inhabitants, provides visitors with an unforgettable safari experience.
Madikwe is home to a fantastic host of game species including the ‘Big 5’ (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard), cheetah, giraffe, hyena and many more. The birdlife is also spectacular, with over 360 bird species found there.
It’s also one of the best places in Southern Africa to watch the elusive and rare wild dog, boasting a world-renowned breeding program in the Reserve. A fascinating species on the brink of extinction, March and April are amongst the best months to see these energetic, entertaining, and fearsome predators range widely across the changing landscape of the Reserve.
Madikwe Game Reserve is strictly protected and self-drive or day trips are tightly restricted in the area. This means that the best way to see the Reserve is during a stay in one of the area’s exclusive bush hideaways.
Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge is situated on private ground within the Reserve overlooking the Marico River. Luxurious accommodation for just 16 guests, exceptional cuisine, welcoming service and thrilling game viewing, all combine to create an unforgettable luxury safari experience.
With limited off-road driving restrictions and full traversing rights over the entire 75,000 hectare Madikwe Reserve, Sanctuary Retreats guests have access to some of the best game viewing South Africa has to offer.
With a significant increase in demand for safari travel to South Africa predicted this year, now is the perfect time to book your ultimate getaway to Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge and stay ahead of the pack.
