Situated an easy 4.5 hour drive from Johannesburg and Sir Seretese Khama International Airport, Gaborone approximately two hours away by car, Dithaba Lodge is located in the eastern region of Madikwe Game Reserve upon the mountain, offering incredible views of the plains. Madikwe is a huge reserve of 100,000 hectares and is famous for its population of wild dog and the Big Five, offering a heightened sense of being in the wild, more so than the Eastern Cape.
With only four suites, Dithaba offers an intimate experience, allowing the entire lode to be hired exclusively if necessary. Each suite consists of an indoor and outdoor shower, private plunge pool, private deck area and wood burning fire place.
All meals are prepared from as much locally grown produce as possible, by a multi-skilled chef. Dithaba offers delicious cuisine from its legendary menu, or bespoke and tailor made banquets to meet every need. Prices include all meals, teas and coffees, bush breakfasts and dinners, picnic lunches, soft drinks, local beers, spirits and house wines.
Madikwe Safari Lodge has trained and qualified therapists, who will visit guests in the privacy of their own suite to help unwind with an array of treatments, including massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and reflexology therapies. For those wishing to explore the reserve, game drives to spot the ‘Big Five’ and a variety of other species including lion, elephant and rhino are held twice daily, alongside guided walks and bush picnics, all of which are complimentary at the lodge.
