          Clean, comfortable with all you need. Lots of space and enjoyed a nice braai. Very friendly and helpful staff.

          Chalet was spacious with well laid out wooden furnishings. A very clever braai set up and log fire boma. The place has huge potential, but cleanliness, and maintainance is sadly lacking. A once- off experience.

          We found nothing directly connected with the managers of Madikwena to be unsatisfactory. They have obviously made a serious effort to provide a high standard of service to clients.The only negative factor is, I think, beyond their control; there was very loud shabeen type music pounding out late into the nights on both the Friday and Saturday when we were there.

          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 .
