Madikwe Game Reserve



The Madikwe Game Reserve, close to the Botswana border, covers 75,000 hectares of open grassland, rolling hills and riverside forest along the tranquil Marico River. The area is home to the ‘Big Five’ and a myriad of other animal and bird species, including the African wild dog. Importantly for families, the reserve is free of malaria. Madikwe lies to the north west of Johannesburg, either 50 minutes by light aircraft or about four hours by road, making it an easy add-on at the beginning or at the end of your South African holiday.
