Madikwe – A Hidden Gem

Madikwe Game Reserve.

Madikwe is currently considered the fifth largest game reserve in South Africa. The malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve is a 75 000 ha region of untamed beauty. 

Considered one of the best conservation areas in Africa, it offers the Big 5 and Super 7(witch include rare Wild dog and Cheetah). The reserve is relatively unknown a real hidden gem within South Africa.

The region where Madikwe now stands was previously used as farmland. The poor soil meant that farming was mostly unsuccessful and in 1991 the area was declared a national park to help economically uplift the disadvantaged area.

Madikwe is situated against the Botswana border on the cusp of the Kalahari. It is roughly 3.5 hours by car from Johannesburg International Airport. The park is home to approximately 66 large mammals and roughly 300 bird species. You will find all this flora and fauna in an area compromising of vast open plains, grasslands, woodlands, rocky outcrops and single mountains.

  • The Oryx or Gemsbok.
Oryx can survive long period without water (even a couple of weeks). The gemsbok is generally a grazer but changes to browsing during the dry season or when grass is sparse. It may dig up to a meter deep to find roots and tubers, supplementing its water intake by eating wild tsama melons and cucumbers, which can provide all the water required. .

  • Some days you just need to post sunset pics......beautiful shot taken by our guide Josh. “People who dream when they sleep at night know of a special kind of happiness which the world of the day holds not, a placid ecstasy, and ease of heart, that are like honey on the tongue. They also know that the real glory of dreams lies in their atmosphere of unlimited freedom.”- Out of Africa .

  • The lilac-breasted roller (Coracias caudatus) is an African member of the roller (or Coraciidae) family of birds. It is widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa, and is a vagrant to the southern Arabian Peninsula. It prefers open woodland and savanna, and it is for the most part absent from treeless places. Usually found alone or in pairs, it perches conspicuously at the tops of trees, poles or other high vantage points from where it can spot insects, lizards, scorpions, snails, small birds and rodents moving about on the ground. Nesting takes place in a natural hole in a tree where a clutch of 2–4 eggs is laid, and incubated by both parents, who are extremely aggressive in defence of their nest, taking on raptors and other birds. During the breeding season the male will rise to a fair height (69 to 144 metres), descending in swoops and dives, while uttering harsh, discordant cries. The sexes are different in coloration, and juveniles lack the long tail streamers of adults.
