Dithaba Lodge At Madikwe Safari Lodge


This luxury mountainside lodge in malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve has spectacular views.

One of Madikwe Safari Lodge’s three lodges, Dithaba has the most incredible views overlooking the vast bush plains of the reserve. It’s perched further up on the mountainside, and has just four suites which makes it a popular option if you want an exclusive safari experience for a larger group of family or friends. From the minute you arrive, you’ll be made to feel at home by the team of staff who go out of their way to provide anything you could need – you’ll even be spoilt with a private butler, chef, ranger and safari vehicle.

The rounded, thatched roof Suites are sublime. Each one is positioned to give you the best sweeping views of the bush below, with the suites opening out to a long, curved viewing deck. All have a private plunge pool, an outdoor shower and seating area with a fireplace.
