Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the best places in South Africa to see the famous African wild dog. Another reason it’s so special is its unique location – a transition zone on the edges of the Kalahari, where several rare species occur naturally.
Situated in the North West Province on the border with Botswana, Madikwe is a 4 hr drive or 50 minute flight from Johannesburg. It’s a malaria-free and great year round family safari destination, and is one of South Africa’s prime safari destinations.
Madikwe is home to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino and cheetah, as well as a large number of plains game and over 360 species of bird.
Founded in 1991, the reserve is a conservation success story. Not only does it preserve the region’s flora and fauna, but it was created to boost employment in the area and provide a sustainable environment for the local people.
