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.

  • SOFA SAFARI

The term “Sofa Safari” does go hand-in-hand with the Jamala experience. There are very few places in Africa where you can sit and watch wild elephants play at a waterhole 20 meters in front of you. The Sofa Safari will evoke incredible emotion for any traveler young or old. .
