Madikwe & The Waterberg

Overview

Take a short 90-minute flight from Johannesburg and find yourself in the 75,000 acre Madikwe Game Reserve.

It’s not only big, but it is home to the world’s largest wildlife trans-location project, and over the years has become one of the best run reserves in the country. Here you are very likely to see Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion), along with many other species. The area is malaria free and there’s a great choice of luxury accommodation ranging from family friendly lodges to romantic honeymoon retreats. The best time to visit Madikwe is between April and November.
