WHERE TO STAY WITH CHILDREN
 
Excellent game viewing. Superb bird watching. Dramatic scenery. Terrific guides. Safari lodges to fit every budget and style. Madikwe Game Reserve, one of South Africa's best-kept secrets, affords an unforgettable safari experience. So why take the kids? Here are six reasons. 1) Many reserve lodges and camps cater to families. Several offer family game drives as well as special activities for children under the age of eight. 2) The safari guides at this game park excel at explaining the bush to kids. 3) Thanks to Operation Phoenix, the largest game translocation operation in the world, Madikwe is home to a large variety of animal species including the African big five - lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros - and three of South Africa's most endangered species - brown hyena, African wild dog and black rhino. 4) Roughly 300 bird species, including many raptors, have been sighted at Madikwe. 5) The reserve's diverse landscape - inselbergs or rocky hills, acacia studded grasslands and thick riverine forests - make it ideal for wildlife viewing. 6) Madikwe is malaria free.
