Fauna and Flora
Surrounded by 75 000 hectares of malaria-free African
sand veld, this luxury lodge is ideally positioned on the Groot Marico
River in the heart of Madikwe Game Reserve. The experienced game rangers
generously share their intimate knowledge of the bush as you venture
on your many safari rides or game walks. Discover the mystery of the
acacia bushveld, enjoy a myriad of bird life and experience the thrill
of observing the majestic "Big Five" in their natural habitat.
Game drives are conducted through the
year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its
peak, i.e. early morning and late afternoon into evening. The morning
safari departs at sunrise, and the evening drives leaves late enough
in the afternoon for guests to enjoy a bush sunset and the opportunity
to view nocturnal animals after dark.
