Out of the heart of the spectacular Madikwe Game Reserve, embraced by pristine bushveld nurtured by Mother Africa’s rich red soil, Etali Safari Lodge rises to meet you with lavish hospitality.

Built to be in harmony with nature under the vibrant African sun, Etali is an exclusive, intimate haven where body and soul are rejuvenated in surroundings created by people who understand luxury. You’ll find the accommodation at Etali Safari Lodge sheer bliss in any one of our eight luxurious air-conditioned suites, each set apart for total privacy in its own bushveld domain. The mix of cool and earthy colours in the decor is a peaceful contrast to the unsurpassed beauty of the sweet thorn Acacia trees outside. Cooling off in the splendid outdoor whirlpool, sipping a cocktail as you watch the breathtaking African sunset on your own deck is the ultimate indulgence.

Nothing beats a long, lingering shower taken in our inside and outside showers with only a bird or little antelope as audience. Second to that may be to soak away in our partner bath and enjoy a relaxing bath therapy prepared by our therapist. Big comfortable beds with fine crisp linen promise an unforgettable night’s sleep beneath the thatched roof. We also cater for families with our family suite and if you have teenagers, we can offer you two slightly smaller back-to-back rooms, the only in the camp with a connecting deck. These rooms do not have an outside shower, however they share a heated plunge pool.

Our core philosophy of natural health is based on holism and incorporates healing and rejuvenating body, mind and spirit, guaranteed to reawaken your five senses. Etali's state-of the-art Wellness Centre is a unique concept. The design and layout of the cool, thatched, earthy toned secluded Wellness rooms lends itself to a sense of space, allowing the soundtrack of the great outdoors to float in and lull you into a deep state of relaxation.You hear the echo of the elephants around the water hole and the Weaver birds tapping on the windows. This piece of undisturbed Africa is where nature is truly in its element. Discover how fantastically good you really can feel.

Whether you are in need of pure self-indulgence, to commune with nature or detoxify the whole body, improve fitness levels, recover from illness or to simply relax and unwind from modern urban living then this is where you can install a feeling of calm and relief. True relaxation is an art; let us show you.

Etali’s delectable cuisine is a contemporary fusion of traditional African with an Asian twist. Meals are light and healthy with lots of fresh seasonal and organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs. There is no set menu as the chef extraordinaire selects only the best local produce daily to work his magic. Etali house wines are supplied by Glenwood Estate. We serve Glenwood Shiraz and Glenwood Semillon Sauvignon Blanc wines. Other than fine dining in our dining room or main deck, we offer traditional South African dinners in our lesaka kraal built-in stone. Tswana elders used to gather in lesaka to discuss tribal issues. Etali has a site where we serve bush breakfasts and dinners weather permitting.

On the far Northern border of South Africa lies a beautiful area known as the Great Marico and it is in this spectacular setting, in Malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, that Tau Game Lodge is situated.

Privately owned Tau Game Lodge was built in 1995 and overlooks a vast natural waterhole, which attracts a variety of game, as does the diverse vegetation, which thrives in the fertile topsoil. The Lodge was designed to reflect the natural surroundings and makes use of the natural resources wherever possible.
The main body of the Lodge is two-leveled and has a comfortable lounge, plunch pool, curio shop, bar and dining-room which are semi open-air and overlook the waterhole.

Delicious buffet breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the main building or on the verandah next to the plunge pool and dinner is served in a cosy boma under the stars. Situated at an easy 4 hours driving distance from Johannesburg, Tau, the place of the lion, can host and accommodate up to 60 people. Tau Game Lodge has a state-of-the-art convention centre suitable for up to 150 delegates.

Impodimo Game Lodge is set along a rocky ridge commanding stunning vistas of the reserve. It is also located at the source of a natural spring, which provides the lodge with elevated views as well as riverine serenity. The lodge offers dawn and dusk safaris. The safaris are carefully timed to ensure optimal seasonal comfort.

Whilst Impodimo has 10 suites, its capacity is 16 guests, each of the suites have been carefully positioned to ensure absolute privacy. Spacious in design, each includes a closed system fireplace, climate control air conditioner, mini bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and full en-suite bathroom and outside shower. Your private deck allows uninterrupted views of the Madikwe Game Reserve.

The owner/manager team of Steve and Debbie are ideally suited to tailoring the most memorable safari experience, Whilst Steve is a highly qualified expert ranger, Debbie adds impressive culinary qualifications to the team.

The team has gone to great lengths to ensure that guests have as much choice as possible in enjoying their experience, for example, 7-seater landrovers are used instead of the traditional 10 seater type. Impodimo is the first lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve to have qualified Shangaan trackers as part of the team. This adds a different dimension to the safari experience ensuring consistent big game sightings.

With fewer guests on landrovers the team encourages guests to maximise optimal game viewing times, for example this may include a full day safari in winter with a picnic lunch stop.
