Situated in South Africa's North West Province, on the border with Botswana, this 75 000 hectare wilderness is approximately 25 km from Gaborone and 355 km from Johannesburg and Pretoria and its location ensures an excellent, malaria free South African safari destination.
Lying within a transition zone between bushveld and Kalahari thornveld, madikwe hosts an incredible diversity of species from both ecosystems. Madikwe Game Reserve is only a 1 hour flight from Johannesburg, making it a convenient destination for a safari near Johannesburg.
Madikwe Game Reserve is also a short drive from the legendary playground of Sun City Resort, making it the ideal combination for a weekend getaway from the city or business conference. Many travellers are now combining the two destinations as part of their South African safari.
