          My wife and I spent our anniversary at Madikwe River Lodge in May 2014 and had a wonderful time. Our Guide( Fortune) made our game drives very special and not only did we see the "Big 5" we also were treated to an amazing sunset sighting of a pack of wild dogs and a morning encounter with 4 cheetah. The highlight was an early morning visit by a male and female leopard within 20 metres of our room! The staff at Madikwe River Lodge spoilt us and made our anniversary evening one we will always remember. I would recommend this lodge to anyone who wants to be close to nature and enjoy warm hospital...

          About the most fun I have ever had in the bush! The food was fantastic and so was the accommodation and lodge. Service was exceptional and our game ranger Benson was awesome. It was the best weekend break away I have ever had!

          The location was excellent, the staff were extremely attentive, and the food abundant. The morning and evening tours were just amazing; informative and authoritative, and the wildlife was plentiful. It was an education watching the guides track and find lions and rhinos and virtually anything. We have no complaints whatsoever.
