Undulating hills, woodland-draped valleys and plains interrupted by drastic escarpments and abruptly rising inselberg mounds, the Madikwe Game Reserve feels like South Africa’s most dramatic secret. Its far-flung location, bordering Botswana’s Kalahari, makes this private reserve one of the country’s lesser-known parks where you can soak up flourishing game, blissfully undeterred by the crowds.
The land may be remote but it is certainly no less rewarding in terms of riveting wildlife, containing all of Africa’s Big 5 as well as smaller but equally fascinating species like porcupines and pangolin. Home to healthy populations of cheetah and over 300 bird species, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive wild dog, Madikwe’s most sought-after sighting, with its patchwork pelt of musky colours blending seamlessly into the earth.
