Royal Madikwe is an extravagant lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve that is only offered as an exclusive use camp for small groups of up to 10 people. The experience here is tailored to the guest, with completely flexible meal times and safari activities adapted to the guest's preferences. The main lodge overlooks a small waterhole, and has many focal points from the outdoor relaxation area to the open boma and attached bar. There is a specific children’s room which is suitably furnished and a decent kids’ programme to give parents time to themselves. There are multiple dining options in and around the lodge which are usually rotated every day so you never eat in the same place. The standard suites are lavishly decorated and contain all the typical luxury items a guest could ask for. The Royal Suite is palatial and is more of a mansion than a room. It is a completely private 2-bedroom villa with its own pool, kitchen, study, TV room and so forth. Guests have the options of indoor or outdoor showers and baths. As one would expect with such an establishment, the service is excellent.
