The real enticement of Madikwe, is the diversity of species to see and photograph

Madikwe Game reserve a 75,000 Ha reserve with amazingly opposing and varied habitats. Th landscapes vary from riverine forest along the Marico river, Kalahari Sandveld to Bushveld with intermittent massive open plains. These are all divided by the 2 mountain ranges that cut through the reserve, the Dwarsberg in the south and the Rant Van Tweedepoort in the middle. The real enticement of Madikwe, is the diversity of species to see and photograph.

It has abundant predator viewing- with a healthy Lion population, Cheetah, African Wild dogs, Leopard, Spotted Hyena and the more elusive Brown Hyena. With more than 400 species of bird, the yellow throated Sandgrouse will also be a delightful possibility for birders. Both Southern Pied and Arrow-marked Babblers, White-fronted and Swallow-tailed Bee-eaters occur indicating this a reserve right in the middle of the moister east and the dry west.

Isak Pretorius and Shem Compion recently travelled to Madikwe Game Reserve on assignment for Jaci’s lodges. They were treated to a good mix of the big five animals, breath-taking sunsets, the elusive Brown Hyena and endangered Wild Dogs. Jaci’s and Madikwe are perfectly placed for a photo workshop. We have some great plans in place, once lockdown ends and travel is allowed.
