Thanks Carol that we could bring our doggies they with us loved the nature walks and animals in your game park. Awesome place to just get away for the weekend, relax and enjoy the bonfire in your private area. Jacuzzi was a rare bonus.

We really enjoyed our stay at Madikela lodge, the view was spectacular, it was peaceful and quiet, we could just relax and unwind from the busy lifestyle.. I would recommend you take enough food so you don't have to drive around a lot. There was also great places to explore close to Madikela lodge which was awesome. A must for you and the misses, definitely not for kids at the sandstone cottage. Read more

It was very tranquil and we had stunning views of the sunrise . The game are beautiful and healthy. We did not see or hear anybody at our chalet. It was really refreshing and food for the soul. Will definitely go again.

We loved the seclusion of the cabin.. And how neat, tidy, and professional it was laid out.Everything worked, and was a pleasure to stay in.The wildlife all around, which was accessible by a simple drive, or walk, was breathtaking. Felt like home away from home
