Lion, elephant, black and white rhino, and leopard are here in abundance. Cheetah, giraffe, as well as spotted and brown hyena thrive on the Reserve. This is also one of the best places in Southern Africa to see the elusive and rare wild dog.

Game drives – Two daily game drives, in the early morning and late afternoon, offer a chance to get up close to Madikwe’s vast array of flora and fauna, including the “Big Five”. Note that the afternoon drive, after a brief stop to enjoy sundowners, continues into the night to reveal nocturnal wildlife.

Game Walks – For even more in-depth exploration of the bush, a game walk is essential. An armed and experienced guide will educate and enlighten as you are led along paths that follow the footsteps of animals. Feel the thrill of walking through the wild and wonderful environment.
