Madikwe Game Reserve & The Waterberg

Situated close to the Kalahari Desert, just on the Botswana border lays Madikwe game reserve- a reserve a little bit different to other parks and reservation areas in South Africa.

Established in 1991 after the African government decided the soil was too poor for farming and the disadvantaged area needed an economic uplift, 10,000 mammals were relocated from other National Parks, and this was the birth of Madikwe Game Reserve.

Although one of the lesser known conservations in South Africa, Madikew is beautifully unspoilt and a lot less busy than the larger parks meaning a more authentic and real experience. It’s now home to 120 different mammal species including some rare and endangered such as the Black Rhino and African Wild Dog. It is a malaria free area ensuring that extra peace of mind when on your safari experience.

Today the reserve is regarded as a prime example of how relationships amongst communities and government can enhance conservation success.
