AWARD-WINNING SAFARI DESTINATION

The Morukuru Family is an award-winning safari and beach destination company. They were recently recognised by Condé Nast Traveler in its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Atholplace Hotel & Villa was voted # 15 Best Hotel in Africa and Morukuru Family Madikwe was voted #10 Best Resort in Africa and #24 Best in the World. In 2018, nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted a record-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how people travel today and their preferred accommodation.

PREMIER GAME RESERVE

Madikwe Game Reserve is the fifth largest game reserve in South Africa and although, less esteemed than it’s big brother the Kruger National Park; Madikwe Game Reserve has earned itself the reputation of being an exceptional safari destination in South Africa. The luxury lodges on Madikwe Game Reserve are outstanding and unashameably marketed to the high-end safari traveller. They’re created on the high price/low tourist volume model so you’re guaranteed exclusivity and privacy as well as exceptional game sightings without the “queue to view” problem at the larger national parks in South Africa. Madikwe Game Reserve is home to the Big 5 which includes elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard as well as an abundance of antelope, predators and the regular safari bunch such as zebra, giraffe and hippo. A fine collection of rare wild dog and cheetah means Madikwe Game Reserve offers guests the Big 7. The private game reserve is considered one of the best wildlife conservation areas in southern Africa . The wildlife reserve spans 75 000 hectares of untamed and unspoilt bushveld which was previously neglected farmlands. Through a massive restoration and translocation programme, Madikwe Game Reserve was transformed into a magnificent wildlife conservation reserve.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC BENIFITS

Madikwe Game Reserve was established in 1994 when the land was identified by authorities in the North West Province as suitable for wildlife conservation. The aim of developing Madikwewas to boost eco-tourism in the region which would directly benefit the local community who otherwise have little to no opportunities to earn an income to support their families. The private game reserve is essentially a socio-economic-drivenprivate nature reserve which is managed in a three-way partnership with the North West tourism authorities, private land owners and leaders in the community. The game reserve serves to protect and showcase South Africa’s wonderful fauna and flora and boosts the socio-economic dynamics of the region through community-based projects, job creation and state concession fees paid directly to the communities which live adjacent to Madikwe Game Reserve.  

RICH CULTURAL HERITAGE

One thing that makes Madikwe Game Reserve special is its rich cultural heritage. The history of the Madikwe region began almost one million years ago and countless historical sites in the area bear testament that inhabitants from the Stone Age and Iron Age as well as the roving San bushmen settled for some time in the area.  

INCREDIBLY BIODIVERSITY

Madikwe Game Reserve lies in a transition zone on the edges of the Kalahari Desert and comprises a combination of habits which suits flora and fauna from both the semi-arid region and the lush indigenous bushveld of northern South Africa. The reserve lies in the basin of the Marico River from which it gets its indigenous name. Riverine nirvana blends with open savanna grasslands and wooded thickets. Most luxury safari lodges in Madikwe Game Reserve are positioned on the river’s banks to take advantage of incredible wildlife sightings on the water’s edge and the Dwarsberg Mountain in the far distance.  

ABUNDANCE OF GAME

The wastelands of the derelict farming region were transformed over a period of seven years to create one of the most prestigious private game reserves in southern Africa which is home to the Big 7 and an abundance of animals and birds. The original area was mainly degraded cattle farms which were run inefficiently. Problems such as poor soil and dry, arid conditions made the area a difficult place to farm. However, it would turn out to be perfect for a protected wildlife reserve. Settlement Planning Services of the North West Province commissioned a feasibility study to determine how the land could be used better. Wildlife-based tourism came back as the ideal option which would benefit the local communities the most. What followed from 1991 was the largest translocation project in the world called Operation Phoenix. More than 8 000 animals comprising 28 species were reintroduced into the newly-established Madikwe Game Reserve. Operation Phoenix achieved a number of world-firsts including relocating an entire herd of elephants and reintroducing a pride of African wild dog into the nature reserve. Translocation efforts in Madikwe are ongoing; 5 cheetah and 25 gemsbok were introduced into the reserve in 2012. This project is an ongoing effort with 5 cheetah and 25 gemsbok being introduced into the park in 2012. Today, Madikwe Game Reserve’s conservation efforts and stalwart breeding programmes have led to the reserve being in a position to donate or sell on game species to boost numbers in the smaller national parks and game reserves. The highlight of these conservation programmes is Madikwe’s world-renowned wild dog breeding programme.  

BIG 5 TERRITORY

Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is located in a strikingly beautiful game reserve that’s home to the Big 7 which includes elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. Usually game reserves talk about the Big 5 but the addition of strong populations of wild dog and a growing population of cheetah; wildlife enthusiasts are promised an exceptional safari experience at Madikwe Game Reserve which rivals the likes of Sabi Sands, Timbavati and Kapama in the Mpumalanga Province as well private concessions in the Kruger National Park. Big 5 is the term coined by big game hunters of days gone by who regarded the five in the group to be the most dangerous and terrifying to encounter unwittingly on a hunt. Today, the term is widely used for the group of animals which most travellers regard as the most exciting to see on a safari tour. There has been a steep growth in the elephant population in Madikwe Game Reserve to the extent numbers in the reserve are higher than any other protected area in South Africa. The population will need to be brought back to acceptable levels. Like all game reserves in South Africa, Madikwe Game Reserve deals with the scourge of rampant rhino poaching but concerted anti-poaching efforts are bearing fruit and the game reserve seems to have “turned the tide against poachers” according to latest reports. You’ll find white rhino and the elusive and highly endangered black rhino in Madikwe Game Reserve. Madikwe Game Reserve also has a healthy population of buffalo, numbering some 850 animals. Buffalo are susceptible to diseases such as bovine tuberculosis and the reserve oversees a stringent disease management programme in order to control the spread of this and other diseases. The prides of lion you’ll see at Madikwe Game Reserve were relocated from Etosha National Park in Namibia. Two new males were recently relocated from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park to introduce new genes into the pool. Leopard sightings at Madikwe Game Reserve are rare but these solitary cats do sporadically put in an appearance for lucky visitors. They live a solitary life in the reserve hidden in the rocky outcrops and have adapted incredibly well to the diverse habitats.  

HOME OF THE PAINTED HUNTING DOG

Madikwe Game Reserve has earned international repute for its pioneering translocation project which saw the African wild dog re-introduced to the area as part of Operation Phoenix. The highly endangered species is thriving in Madikwe Game Reserve despite lion attacks when they first arrived and a spate of rabies outbreaks. African wild dogs are easily identified by their splotched coat which is a splattered combination of brown, white, black and yellow. No two African wild dogs have the same markings. They are highly sociable and extremely efficient hunters. Wild dogs live in packs of 5 to 15 dogs which are led by an alpha male or female. Each dog shares in the spoils of a hunt and each pack member contributes to caring for the pups.  

DAILY GAME DRIVES

Glorious days spent at Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge are sandwiched between two exciting game drives. Guests wake up early for a sunrise game drive and return to the bushveld for a late afternoon drive with sundowners at a special vantage point. Children under the age of 5 years are not allowed on open safari vehicles for daily game drives. These regulations are put in place for the safety of your child. The beauty of staying at luxury safari lodges at Madikwe Game Reserve such as Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge is the exclusivity of the safari experience. Guests have the ‘run of the reserve’ because numbers are strictly controlled so you don’t experience overcrowding and a ‘queue to view’ problem at wildlife sightings.  

FINE CUISINE AT MADIKWE HILLS PRIVATE GAME LODGE

Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge has earned itself a reputation for its excellent cuisine which almost surpasses its reputation for luxurious accommodation in Madikwe. The Royal Safari Lodge has received its fair share of awards including the Best Safari Cuisine in Africa award. Guests enjoy dining alfresco beneath the stars on the outdoor deck on warm evenings or inside in the stylish dining room on cooler evenings with a roaring fire keeping guests snug and cozy. You have the choice of places to dine in the evening; from the wonderful outdoor boma to the romantic starlit pool deck and dinner in the watchtower. Meals are paired with fine wines sourced from premier wine estates in the famous Cape Winelands.  

EXCLUSIVE SAFARI EXPERIENCE

Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge can be booked on an exclusive-use basis which offers discerning guests privacy and exclusivity. A maximum of 6 guests per vehicle is allowed on Jamala’s open safari vehicles and a private game drive is available on request. Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge has exceptional game rangers who hold FGASA qualifications as well as advanced certificates in rifle-handling and first-aid training. Expert game trackers accompany each game drive so you’re guaranteed great animal and bird sightings.  

MADIKWE HILLS PRIVATE GAME LODGE SPA

After the morning game drive, enjoy a decadent pamper session at the spa at Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge. The bespoke menu includes signature treatments using Charlotte Rhys spa products which includes Baobab Oil and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil as well as Aloe Ferox Leaf Extract. The therapists at Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge spa only use products that are environmentally friendly and approved by Beauty Without Cruelty. The LaMelle skin care range contains ingredients that helps reduce free radicals and pigmentation and has a topical growth factor which increases new collagen development.

Sun City’s neighbor is Pilanesberg Game Reserve. It’s the ideal destination for a “surf & safari” holiday as it only takes about 15 minutes to pop across to Pilanesberg for a Big 5 safari adventure.  

PILANESBERG GAME RESERVE

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is one of the largest and most popular game reserves in South Africa, rivalling the iconic Kruger National Park as a Big 5 destination. What makes Pilanesberg so popular is it’s located in a malaria-free region, it’s less than a 2-hour drive from Johannesburg and its famous neighbour is the Sun City Entertainment & Casino Resort. Pilanesberg lies in the crater of a long-extinct volcano. The fascinating alkaline complex was created by volcanic action some 1 300 million years ago; the area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills. The volcanic crater has survived ages of erosion and stands high above the surrounding bushveld plains. The early presence of man can be seen in numerous Stone and Iron Age sites found throughout the park. Prior to its proclamation as a reserve in 1979, the Pilanesberg National Park Complex was degraded and depleted of indigenous wildlife populations due to fairly intense settlement by commercial farmers. At considerable expense, the land has been restocked with game, the scars of human settlement were removed and tourism infrastructure was developed during the first 15 years (1979 and 1993). This constituted the largest and most expensive game stocking and land rehabilitation project ever undertaken in any African game reserve at the time. It was called Operation Genesis and introduced, among others, endemic species such as brown hyena, cheetah, wild dog and sable.  

BARBERSPAN BIRD SANCTUARY

The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary spans 2 000 hectares and is regarded as the largest inland waterfowl sanctuary in southern Africa. It is RAMSAR Convention-accredited due to its international importance as a sanctuary for migratory birds and waterfowl. Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is a massive 2000 hectare body of water which is divided into two sections; the southern part of bird watching and the northern part for angling and boating. Avid bird watchers can expect to see thousands of birds including flamingos, African spoonbills and pelicans. The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is located on the outskirts of the town of Delareyville which is close to Vryburg on the N14 highway and roughly three hours’ drive from Johannesburg.  

KORTKLOOF CULTURAL VILLAGE

The Kortkloof Cultural Village is located in the Kortkloof Valley in the rugged hills of the Swartruggensnear Groot Marico. The village is set deep in rural North West Province and not easily accessible to visitors. Visits need to be pre-booked through the Groot Marico Tourism office because it’s an authentic cultural village and not one artificially set up for tourism. The inhabitants of Kortkloof village live in much the same way they have for the last 100 years. Their lives are largely unaffected by development and modern conveniences and they’ve retained their cultural traditions which extend to food, dancing, dress and traditional way of life. Whilst in the area, you can visit the Eye of Marico which is a natural river fountain, tour a local mampoer distillery and visit the Herman Charles Bosman Living Museum and Wondergat.  

BORAKALALO NATIONAL PARK

Borakalalo is one of the most under-rated national parks in South Africa but is well worth a visit. The nature reserve spans some 14 000 hectares of what is described ‘unusual eco-diverse terrain’; comprising a mix of broad-leafed and acacia woodland combined with riverside forests along the banks of the Moretele River. The national park is home to over 350 different bird species and attracts avid bird watchers who come to see 11 types of eagle and 18 different raptors. The Borakalalo Dam is popular with anglers on a mission to catch carp, bream and barbel. It is not home to the Big 5 except for white rhino (except it is the black rhino which is classified part of the Big 5); it’s home to an array of antelope, giraffe, and leopard.  

BOTSALANO GAME RESERVE

The Botsalano Game Reserve lies just north of Mafikeng close to the Botswana border on the South African side. Like the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, it is located on the site of one of the oldest volcanic craters in the world which extends through the Park and into Botswana. The national park plays an important conservation role in South Africa and is runs successful breeding programmes for antelope and other mammals which are relocated to stock other game reserves in the country. Spanning some 5 800 hectares, Botsalano Game Reserve comprises a mix of Kalahari thornveld and vast open savanna grasslands interspersed by thick acacia and karee woodlands. Botsalano means ‘friendship’ in Setswana. The reserve is stocked with well over 2 000 head of animals and is home to over 200 bird species. Apart from the presence of white rhino, Botsalano Game Reserve has few dangerous animals and no Big Cats so it’s a popular destination for mountain bikers and hikers. There is an extensive network of animal tracks in the reserve which serve as ideal paths for bike rides and walks.  

MAFIKENG GAME RESERVE

Mafikeng Game Reserve spans some 4 600 hectares of open Kalahari grasslands, acacia thorn scrub and mixed sour bushveld. It lies on the boundary of the capital city of the North West Province and is easily accessible for a day trip. The game reserve is one of the major breeding reserves for white rhino in South Africa. It is also famous for having pioneered electronic tagging in an effort to curb rampant rhino poaching. To see lions; Manyane Game Lodge is situated on the border of Mafikeng Game Reserve. Guests can access Manyane reserve from Mafikeng Game Reserve to visit a lion enclosure and crocodile camp.  

MOLOPO GAME RESERVE

Molopo Game spans some 24 000 hectares and lies on the border of Botswana in the far western corner of the North West Province. It is one of the province’s “secret reserves” mostly because of its remote location, lack of large predators and limited accommodation. It is used as a hunting concession in winter which is off putting for most animal lovers. On the predator’s list you’ll find cheetah, hyena, caracal, the African wildcat, honey badger and black-backed jackal. Molopo’s bird list is impressive and it’s bird heaven for avid bird watches. For aspiring archaeologists, a popular attraction is the fossillised Phepane river bed which can be explored on foot.  

TAUNG HERITAGE SITE

Taung is a remote town located in the southern region of the North West Province in South Africa. It’s famous for being the site of where a child’s fossillised skull was found in 1924 at the Buxton Quarry. It was discovered by Professor Dart and named Australopithecus Africanus, which translates to “the southern ape of Africa”. The Taung Heritage site forms part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. The discovery of the fossil site is marked by a monument and an abandoned mine tunnel is open to explore. A tour of Taung offers visitors fascinating insight into the history of southern Africa and the civilisations that preceded modern societies.  

MOLEMANE EYE NATURE RESERVE

The Molemane Eye Nature Reserve is located 11 kilometres from Ottoshoop on the Lichtenburg-Zeerust Road in the North West Province. It’s a petite nature reserve more famous for its spectacular scenery and fishing spots than game and birds. The centre of the reserve is a natural well where half the water filters into the dam for and the rest turns a giant water wheel which still keeps the old mill working. The Mill at Molemane Eye Nature Reserve is a national monument. Pitch a tent, grab your bass fishing rods and enjoy a ‘catch and release’ day at the dam.
