The Safari Dream: Makanyane Lodge in South Africa

Travel: Safari Vacation Plans? We found a dream destination!
Makanyane Safari Lodge consists of a beautiful main building and eight stunning suites, which lie hidden in the lush forest, offering spectacular views over the tranquil Marico River. Situated on 1,800 hectares of private ground within the 75,000 hectare Madikwe Game Reserve, the area is South Africa's second largest game reserve.

Established in 1991, Madikwe was the site of operation Phoenix - the largest translocation of game ever undertaken - with over 10,000 animals reintroduced into the reserve. Madikwe Game Reserve is more than just an incredible safari destination, it is an internationally significant conservation initiative. 

The species that populate Madikwe include lion, leopard, rhinos as well as large herds of elephant and buffalo. Cheetah, spotted and brown hyena, giraffe, zebra and numerous antelope species also roam the reserve. 

So surreal to see an elephant meandering past your bed.

Surrender to the outdoors and sleep in the open, (with an insect net) - still you are under the stars!
