The 5th largest (and lesser known) game reserve, Madikwe is located in a malaria free zone near the boarder of Botswana. The park is home to lots of birds and animals, including the “big five.” We found it to be a good alternative to some of the larger, more expensive reserves. Plus it is in a malaria free zone.
We enjoyed our four night stay at The Bush House, which is located on the western side of the park. The hospitality was incredible, the food was terrific, and the game drives were enjoyable. We found ourselves in awe at the animals that visited the lodge’s watering hole throughout the day. We highly recommend The Bush House and hope to return again one day.
