Rhulani Safari Lodge, Madikwe


An authentic safari lodge, secluded within a picturesque expanse of the Madikwe Game Reserve

Secluded within the wild landscape of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, the Rhulani Safari Lodge is a romantic safari escape, surrounded by incredible views, magnificent wildlife, and a well-frequented watering hole. Guests can head out on twice-daily game drives during their stay, but for keen explorers, there are also guided walking game trails (at extra cost) and bird watching opportunities.

To encourage variety in your stay, a traditional South African menu can be enjoyed in different locations in and around the lodge. Your hosts will set up dinner in different places (dependent on weather), so you can spend an evening on the generous outdoor patio, another socialising within the candlelit dining room, or perhaps eating beneath the night sky in the traditional African boma. For a more intimate experience, a romantic dinner in the privacy of your own chalet can also be arranged.

To reflect the breathtaking beauty of the lodge's natural safari surroundings, each chalet has been decorated in rustic savannah and vibrant sunset colours to create a wonderfully wild and indigenous feel in each room. All chalets feature sweeping views of the surrounding reserve, and are generously furnished with a luxurious en-suite, a complimentary minibar, Nespresso coffee machine and a stunning private pool and outdoor decking area.
