Madikela Game Lodge is situated in the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, 32 km outside Vaalwater on the Melkrivier Road, and a comfortable two-hour, 15-minutes drive from Pretoria. Madikela, meaning "Place of the Setting Sun", is situated on a limestone plateau which was formed millions of years ago. This limestone, which rests on a granite base, has in time eroded, forming the most amazing rock formations.

The main garden area features a large swimming pool, 18-hole minigolf, a jungle gym, and games room. Accommodation comprises six secluded, thatched, self-catering cottages, each with its own game-viewing deck, a Jacuzzi splash pool, and enclosed barbecue boma.

The Bush Camp is located 80 m from the main swimming pool and consists of four thatched bungalows, each sleeping nine guests. Features at the camp include a ladies and gents ablution block with hot showers and flushing toilets, and a bush kitchen in the barbecue boma with a large fridge-freezer.

Activities include a 4X4 trail which takes approximately five hours to complete, with exit routes provided to shorten the trail if required. The reserve also offers the most wonderful sand stone formations, and many guests have enjoyed climbing onto these rocks for a breathtaking 360-degree view of the Waterberg. To view game such as giraffe, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, blesbuck, impala, warthog and baboons, one can either self-drive, cycle or walk. Due to safety issues, buffalo may only be viewed from outside the electrified camp.

In addition, there are three fully licensed restaurants within 4 km of Madikela, where apart from enjoying a fine meal, one can view tigers, white lion, leopard, caracal, hyena, wolves, reptiles, and birds of prey.

Pets allowed under the conditions; must have their own bedding and bowls. No pets allowed on the beds. Pets must be on a leash at all times when out walking.

Pets limited to two small/medium or one large dog. Owners must clean up after their dogs.

“Built by campers for campers” Matamba offers two exclusive upmarket bush campsites. Situated on a beautiful four-hundred hectares private game farm, two and a half hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Matamba is ideal as a weekend getaway or as a stopover on the way to Botswana.

Tau camp is spread over about four hectares, with the campsites and the facilities connected by paths winding through the open woodland. It has three individual sites; Drongo, Hornbill and Francolin, they are about two-hundred metres apart so are very private. Each site has a fireplace that is supplied with firewood and a tap there is power at the main bathroom and the kitchen with provision for campers to plug in an extension if required.

The spacious family bathroom is a thatch building, with existing rocks as the shower floor. Netting windows offer lovely views onto the surrounding bush. Gas geysers at all the units ensure an endless supply of hot water. There is an outside shower and an outside toilet both constructed around existing trees. The kitchen is also thatch with two washing sinks, an info area and a table and chairs for those wishing to swap travelling experiences.

Mara’s Camp is a private camp for one group only. It is situated in a lovely thick woodland in the middle of the farm, it is built from natural materials and blends perfectly into the surrounding bush. The two outside family bathrooms are stunningly built around tall trees, each bathroom has a shower with rocks used as the shower floor, a flush toilet and basin. A gas geysers supplies hot water. The wash up area is built into a thicket of trees looking up to zebra plains . There is a large central fireplace and again firewood is supplied. There is no power at this camp.

Both campsites are unfenced allowing the game to wander freely through. It is common to find animals in and around the camps.

There are three waterholes and a natural spring, Kibu hide is a viewing deck two metres up in a wild Syringa tree, it looks over Zebra plains and a small waterhole. Ndege hide overlooks the spring, it is a thatch building on stilts and is a lovely place to spend a few hours.

There is no driving on the farm, but there are over sixty kilometers of sandy tracks to explore either on foot or on a mountain bike. (one needs to be experienced as the sand is thick in places) There are four marked trails, but the whole farm is open to be enjoyed.

There is a large variety of plains game on Matamba which are very relaxed and used to people walking, so it is often possible to get very close to them. Birding is also very rewarding with over 200 species recorded. With the lovely trees, wild flowers and grasses Matamba is the place to relax unwind and simply enjoy the bush.

Just outside Vaalwater on the road to Melkrivier is the Church of St John the Baptist, a quaint thatched church designed by renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker.
