Start TestimonialThis was an absolutely brilliant relaxing holiday. Our room was amazing- room 9 right at the bottom in front of the water hole. The drives were excellent but so was sitting on the patio and watching scenes from the Lion King, animals appearing out of the shrub in vast numbers. Also excellent was the Wi-Fi for my husband and the gym for me, made me feel slightly less guilty about consuming the delicious meals. End Testimonial

A COOK

Start TestimonialI had the most fantastic time at the beautiful Madikwe Hills which was largely unoccupied due to the timing between the summer and winter seasons. The transfer from Joburg was easy with Federal-Air and the service was exceptional. I really hope to return there within the next couple of years with my wife and eight year old daughter. Finally, thank you so much for all of your help, it really was a perfect trip and I am very happy to recommend your company and the Reserve to friends and colleagues in the future.End Testimonial

Directions For Drivers

PLEASE NOTE: The main gates open at 06:00 and close at 21:00. Guests who arrive after sunset will not be allowed to self-drive to the lodge. The lodge will send a representative to escort guests to the lodge at an additional cost. SUGGESTION: Refuel at Sun Village/Zeerust as there is no fuel available inside the reserve. DO NOT follow your GPS after Zeerust/Sun City - it will take you on the wrong roads.

From Johannesburg Airport via N4 tar road: Follow the R21 north, to Pretoria (Tshwane) through Kempton Park. After 40 km follow N1 north to Pretoria (Tshwane), Pietersburg (Polokwane). After about 12 km, take N4 west into Pretoria (Tshwane), to Rustenburg or Hartebeespoort Dam. Follow the N4 to Hartebeespoort Dam.

Take the N4 to Zeerust past Brits, Rustenberg, and Swartruggens. Zeerust is approximately 220 km from Pretoria. In Zeerust turn right on the R47/R49 to Gaborone/Madikwe Game Reserve. After +/- 90 km you will see a sign on the right for the Abjaterskop Gate of the Madikwe Game Reserve. You will have to pay a gate entrance fee of R210 per adult/R105 per child (subject to change and payable in cash) to enter the reserve.

Once you are in the reserve, follow the signs to the lodge. Allow about 30-60 minutes to drive from the gate to the lodge.

Do not get out of your car until you reach the lodge. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.

From Sun City via N4 tar road: Turn right from as you leave Sun City onto the R565. After a few km you will come to a junction with the R565 to the left, and the R556 signposted straight ahead. Turn left here to keep on the R565 signposted Phokeng and Rustenberg, and it is 38 km from here to the junction with the N4 tar road.

When you reach the N4, turn right onto the road (signposted Swartruggens and Zeerust) and continue for around 130 km on this road to Zeerust. In Zeerust turn right on the R47/R49 and follow the directions as above.

From Johannesburg or Sun City via gravel roads: There is a gravel road from Sun City to Madikwe - this route is a lot shorter than the current tar road route, however as the roads are gravel and the signs to Madikwe are rather inconsistent, we would not really recommend this route to customers.

Should you wish to return to Sun City or Johannesburg using the gravel roads, the lodge will be able to supply you with a map and directions.
