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 Paperbark Trees around the gardens at Jamala are absolutely filled with these bright beautiful Southern Masked Weavers. Some info regarding them:

Identification
A large, masked weaver with a mostly plain, greenish back, yellow belly and a red eye. The mask extends above the bill. The females and sub-adult males are duller with a buffy yellow breast, white belly and brown eye. Non-breeding adult males are similar, but retain the red eye. 
Habitat
Common resident in savanna, grassland and gardens.

Breeding and nest
Polygynous. Breeds in small colonies in trees or reeds. The nest is neatly woven with a short entrance tube..
