This adults-only lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve is secluded and intimate with just four suites.

Part of Madikwe Safari Lodge, Kopano Lodge is an alluring spot for honeymooners looking for a private and romantic safari. It’s intimate – there are only four suites – and the shared lounge areas are warm, earthy and plentiful. Tuck yourself away with a book in the lounge areas, have a coffee outside on one of the decks for far-reaching views across the bushveld or request a massage on your suite’s private deck. There’s no television here either, so you can really switch off and experience the wild bush surrounds the way it was meant to be. The game drives are spectacular, with excellent Big Five game viewing in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve and sundowners to toast to the end of each day.

Each of the four Suites is styled with a contemporary African design. They are all utterly secluded so it’s a dream for honeymooners. There’s an open-plan bedroom and lounge area under the high thatched roof. From the bathroom, elegant French doors lead out onto an expansive wooden deck and shaded plunge pool area, which, after a long day of game drives, is the perfect setting for you to relax and bask in the surrounding views of the reserve.
