Natural elegance

About us

We need places and moments that make us pause and take time out. Time to think. To listen. To return a smile. To write a letter. Things that make us focus on what really matters in life. On friendship and feelings. Thoughts and dreams. Jamala Madikwe is that place.

Enduring Charm

Jamala Madikwe is a luxury boutique safari lodge in South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve. Organic glamor and opulent accents combine to ensure a distinctive and elegant flair. Tradition and eccentricity are tastefully united in an atmosphere that knows no equal. Your African safari will provide a detailed insight into the diverse landscape of Madikwe Game Reserve and its unparalleled game viewing. Indulge in award winning cuisine under African skies or treat yourself to a tranquil spa day in the Jamala Madikwe Royal Spa.

Jamala Madikwe reflects a classic sense of style that is sufficiently robust to match the savage beauty that lies beyond. Jamala Madikwe is easily accessible by air and road and is located in Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of Southern Africa.

  • NIGHT
twilight approaches
darkness descending 
the day hangs
in between

night waits
round the bend
time goes round and round
while
life is lost and found... .

  • Today we celebrate World Rhino Day 2019 - This day is both a celebration of the important conservation work conducted by the individuals behind the counter-poaching units and this incredible species itself. 
We are also reminded of the many Rhinos we have lost and how every single persons involvement, understanding and contribution can assist in the future protection of this species.
