The unusual, yet subtle décor integrates natural elements with colours highlighting Africa’s ambiance.

After a mere 45 minute flight from Gauteng, or a scenic four hour drive, you will be met by the warm and friendly staff of Madikwe Hills in the main reception area.

A library full of verse and history awaits those yearning for knowledge of the African continent. Fables of Scorpio and Orion may be told by your ranger of Greek mythology, whilst dining in a rustic boma where dramatic and exotic flames dance to the uneven beat of life’s drum. Perhaps you will discover the navigational skills of the Southern Cross before dining in the sophistication of silverware.
