About Madikwena Game Farm

The malaria-free Madikwena Game Farm and Crocodile Ranch lies in the heart of the Groot Marico Bushveld where you are welcomed by irrigated pastures, surrounded by citrus trees, olive groves and table grapes. We offer comfortable accommodation and a wide range of activities.

The game farm offers three rustic cottages with warm timber furnishings. The cottages are fully self-catering and also have braai facilities just outside each cottage. The cottages each have a large fully equipped kitchen as well as a comfortably furnished lounge area and a wooden dining room table. The bedrooms have wooden frame beds and all linen is provided.

There is also the option of sleeping in the rustic tented camp. The camp can accommodate 12 people and is canopied by camel thorn trees. This camp boasts a magnificent boma and braai area and is closely positioned to a waterhole with its own viewing deck.

The Madikwena Crocodile Ranch has 450 breeder crocodiles and 1500 growing crocodiles. Madikwena Game Farm, is only 80 km away from the Royal Bafokeng Soccer Stadium and Sun City, and encircled by the flowing Groot Marico Rivers.

Chalet was very neat and spacious ,stoep and boma was the focus point of our stay .We realy enjoyed the true bushveld atmosphere with game grazing around the chalets .Bird lovers will appreciate the abundance and variety ,a true gem of Marico bushveld with enough bosveld hardwood to make any wild at heart "ouens" jealous ! I can really recommend Madikwena ,even as a stopover on route to Botswana .Thanks to all the staff and people involved, you will surely see us again .

Delightful if you know what you are in for and are prepared. Very basic.

We had very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. The chalets are beautifully furnished. Our hosts were thoughtful in that our braai fire was made every afternoon with plenty of wood supplied and reading material was on hand. We enjoyed walking around the game farm and the buck wandered around our chalet freely. We also enjoyed visiting the Buddhist retreat and the arty coffee shop in Groot Marico. In summer it is worth visiting the eye of the Groot Marico river -very beautiful and clear for swimming. I can recommend Madikwena for excellent value and comfort with friendly hosts.
