Stayed at the Flinstone lodge, what a great experience. Will definitely be back. If you have the time go through to the Lekhalo ziplining just make sure your car can handle dirt roads as it’s dirt road all the way for around 20km. Overall a great experience. Thanks Carol.

Fantastic! It is the most beautiful place! We loved the little winding roads between all the natural vegetation! Amazing rock formations! Lots of animals and birds. The view from Flintstone was good for the soul! The jacuzzi was great! All in all a wonderful couple of days!

Lovely game farm about 35kms from Vaalwater and 10kms from Melkrivier, well off the main road. We saw giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, impala and lots of dassies without really looking for them, masses of birds arrived at our deck birdbath, and we heard other animal calls in the wonderful silence of the bush. The unit was neat, clean and well equipped, bedding was clean and the beds comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. Take everything with you - there is no shop anywhere close! Fabulous place, we will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in the Flintstone Cottage. It gave us a well deserved break. The views were spectacular and even though we had no electricity due to a massive hail storm when we arrived, it added to the calm and serenity. My only suggestion to the managers would be to proactively inform their guests of the situation and in our case possible provide a couple of bags of ice to your guests for them to preserve their food. The second thought would be to clear the roads of debris after such a storm. I ended up walking in front of the car in order to clear the roads.

Overall a great stay and one I look forward to doing again.

Kind regards

Rob

I have long looked for some "magical hide away" deep in the bush of SA - and YES I found exactly what is was looking for at the Madikela Game Lodge. I can only highly recommend this simple but stunning magical hide away. It was simply the best!!!!! Thank you Carol and Team

We had an amazing time at the Flintstones Honeymoon sweet. For anybody that is looking for total privacy in the bush, this is the place for you. Beautiful views from the deck and private jacuzzi. Awesome place.

My goodness! What a heavenly place! We booked Eagles Nest and it was everything as advertised and more. Gréât cycling and game driving. The view is just incredible from our beds. The house felt just like home - cosy, inviting, easy to live in. The night skies were magical. Sunrise and sunsets breath taking. Wonderful friendly staff. Thank you!!
