Dithaba Lodge

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
Experience a stay in South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve that combines true wilderness seclusion with modern comforts and services. Peaceful family accommodation awaits under the soaring rafters of the home’s reed roof, with an exterior viewpoint, pool, and spacious, traditionally-inspired dining area. Look forward to daily safaris, kids activities, and visits to special conservation programs.
Nothing beats watching the African sun rise in golden splendor above the plains and bushlands of this reserve from the viewpoint balcony. Savor a freshly-prepared breakfast in the open air of the exterior dining table, before leisurely preparing for an active day in the air conditioned interior. After a satisfying lunch, sip a reviving cup of freshly-brewed rooibos tea and relax on the comfortable interior couches, or freshen up with the refreshing plunge pool and exterior shower. As evening comes, gather to watch stars peek out from the dusky sky, as candles and fireflies glow around the deck and softly lit, cozy beds await below.
Unforgettable wildlife experiences are assured and a big part of a stay at Dithaba Lodge, with daily safaris that take in Africa’s Big 5 in their natural habitats, including lions, water buffalo, cheetahs, rhinos and elephants. Join in the fun and adventure of an evening boma fire, or wind down with a facial or massage service, direct supplied to your lodge. Join in the success of this hugely successful park with special insights into how the park actively protects the country’s endangered rhino population, and empowers local communities.
