The MADIKELA Game Reserve is situated amidst the Waterberg mountains, a mere 2 hours drive from Pretoria.

In this Malaria free wilderness, one can experience the wonders of the Waterberg,
with amazing rocky outcrops, which are an unique feature of this reserve.

MADIKELA (Place of the setting sun) is situated on a limestone plateau, which was formed millions of years ago. This limestone, which rests on a granite base has in time eroded, forming the most amazing rock formations. The Waterberg lends it to being the most comfortable bush climate in the Limpopo Province.

Madikela Game Lodge also offers guests a large swimming pool with a baby pool, Jungle Gym, 18 hole Putt-Putt course and a Pool/games room.

It was fantastic, quiet and relaxing. Great wildlife, great hikes and self drives. Accommodation is basic and very comfortable. Very clean.

Great stay. Will go back.

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.

I will recommend this place to all my colleagues and to each and everyone!!!! If you want to get away from the city life, noise, nagging people and all of our daily life headaches.... You need to come here!! It's affordable and the owner, Carol is fantastic. The staff, Maria and Johannes are extremely friendly, professional and on 24/7 standby. Each and every bungalow has its own hot tub which is "VERY useful" for all occasions.... No matter how hot or cold the weather may be.... I've lost count of all the wild animals I've ran into, Giraffes, Zebras, Koedoes, wildebeest, water bucks, impala to little animals keeping me busy on the deck in front of my bed, squirrels, Dassies climbing trees to spy on me and so many different types of birds that I didn't even know existed. It's private and safe, and if you really want explore the surroundings, you can visit a little wild life park close by or go ziplining. The people are helpful and so friendly. For any occasion, romantic, celebration, relaxation, fun for the family or just taking a break, I will suggest Madikela lodge!! 2 and a half hours drive from Pretoria and it's worth it. Cold water swimming pools for the hot summers, and for all other occasions a hot water hot tub. If you're like me and seeks privatecy, ask for Flintstone or Sandstone which are 3km away from all the other bungalows. I'm hooked after four lovely nights at Madikela lodge!! I will suggest this place to ALL my colleagues and to all my friends!!! Enjoy a romantic or a well deserved rest at Madikela , Vaalwater !!!
