Madikwe Game Reserve
Malaria Free – Ideal for family Safari’s
Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge is located in Madikwe Game Reserve, a malaria free area that makes it ideal for families on safari. Makanyane provides an intimate and exclusive African safari with just 8 suites accommodating 16 guests.
Named after the African Wild Dog which can be found in the reserve, Makanyane Safari Lodge is situated in a private concession within Madikwe Game Reserve. Nestled in a lush riverside forest on the edge of a ravine the camp looks out onto the Marico River which attracts a variety of wildlife.
The Madikwe Game Reserve is a 185,000 acre malaria free destination which is home to the Big Five as well as African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Giraffe, Hyena and over 360 bird species. The lodge has just eight glass enclosed suites that have been designed to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment. Constructed from local stone, wood and thatch allows guests to feel at home in the natural beauty of the landscape.
Eight luxurious and secluded suites overlook the Marico River. Each suite boasts glass-walled bedrooms that provide astounding views of the forest and river. Each suite has an open-fronted lounge, private sundeck and spacious bathroom. Both indoor and outdoor showers & double vanity basins. The entire front of the en-suite bathroom can be opened to the bush. A private lounge and viewing deck complete the atmosphere.
