Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

Malaria-free and ingeniously set in the middle of Madikwe amongst age-old Tamboti trees, if you’re taking the family on safari, we can’t think of anywhere better than Madikwe Hills.

​Why? Its unique location means you'll have a huge game drive advantage over those lodges situated on the borders of the reserve.

As well as the big five, there's also a wealth of over 66 species of mammal that includes the elusive African wild dog, plus cheetah, eland, kudu, giraffe and over 300 resident and migratory species of birds, and you may even spot a wild black rhino roaming freely amongst the bush's other wildlife residents. The result? One of the most amazing South African safari adventures known to man.

​The stylish suites are organic in design, having details like woven-copper screens, and are cleverly placed amongst the giant boulders dotted around the reserve. There's a great restaurant, an open-air boma, a gym, a spa and children's activities.

Talking of which, the self-contained Little Madikwe Private Camp is just perfect when you have the whole brood in tow. Set at the centre of the reserve and overlooking a brilliant waterhole, not only does it have two-bedrooms, spacious living areas inside and out and a dining room, but stay here and you'll also benefit from a private swimming pool, chef, ranger and game vehicle so you can set your own pace for your family's safari adventure.
