The Madikwe Game Reserve offers Makanyane guests a real opportunity to see packs of the endangered African Wild Dog (in the Tswana language Makanyane) who have successfully been re-established in the game reserve. Visitors will also enjoy stunning views of the roaming Magnificent 7 – lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, wild dogs, cheetahs – as well as over 340 bird species and compelling sceneries, which include the South African plains.

Makanyane Safari Lodge - Accommodation

As in the main lodge, rich African textures abound, walls of natural rock and dried tree trunks merge with rough teak doors and contrast with the overhanging thatch. The glass walled bedroom suites allow uninterrupted views of the river and the surrounding bush.

The open-fronted lounge with its private sundeck is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush. The call of the fish eagle echoes down the river as elephants, escaping the heat of the day, plunge into the deep water and disturb the sleeping hippo.

The spectacular bathrooms have under-floor heating as well as indoor and outdoor showers. The wide, folding doors can be opened to allow the sounds and scents of the surrounding bush to join you in the luxurious freestanding bathtub. The understated luxury of your suite flawlessly compliments your untamed surroundings.

The suites have fireplaces, overhead fans and are fully air-conditioned and heated. The rooms also have a telephone, hot beverage making facilities, mini safe and a bar fridge. Bathrobes, hairdryers, insect repellent, body and sun lotion, soap as well as shampoo and conditioner are all provided.

With eight suites nestled in lush river forests, the Makanyane Safari Lodge offers its guests brilliant views of the tranquil Marico River and deluxe facilities, including exquisite cuisine from top class international chefs and a marvellous wine cellar.
