Madikwe Hills…out and about


My wife and I recently spent a weekend at this Lodge in the Madikwe private game reserve.

This Zebra posed and I did the honours…

Our suite not only had an outdoor shower,

It also had an outdoor bath as well!

And the largest bathroom we have ever experienced in any lodge we have stayed in!

Our lounge with the bedroom in the background

This walkway leads to the front door as well as…

this deck with its own splash pool

All the switches are labeled, which is a nice touch

Walkways links all the buildings together

All creatures great and small!

Elephants coming to the waterhole

A “Zebra crossing”?

A Cape Turtle Dove…one of the most under rated species…


I had to take one “mirror image” of my wife…

Our final sighting for the day! 
Bongani leading the guests in a pre-dinner drumming exercise…

Bongani being surprised by his colleagues on the occasion of his birthday!

A great way to end the day…a Boma dinner around a blazing fire!
