Panoramic views, exotic sounds and wild aromas of the bush are the essence of the Jamala Madikwe experience. Organic glamour and opulent accents combine, creating a distinctive and elegant flair. Beautifully positioned beneath a canopy of ancient Leadwood trees, Jamala Madikwe Royal Safari Lodge looks onto views of open savanna of the Madikwe Game Reserve and a watering hole teeming with Africa’s wildlife. Tradition and eccentricity are tastefully united in a unique atmosphere where a classic sense of style gracefully reflects the surrounding wilderness.
As a result of Operation Phoenix, one of the largest relocation programmes of its kind, Madikwe Game Reserve has a diverse mammal population. Established almost 20 years ago, the reserve successfully reintroduced more than 8 000 animals of 28 species, including lion, elephant and buffalo, as well as black and white rhino. This area is now home to the famous Big Five, as well as the endangered African wild dog and 350 bird species. A special feature of Madikwe lies in its unique location, a transition zone on the edges of the Kalahari, where a number of rare bird species occur naturally, including many interesting raptors.
