Situated forty kilometres south-east of the capital city of Botswana (Gabarone) and ninety kilometres north of Zeerust town, a 3.5 hours drive from Pretoria/Johannesburg or 2 hours drive from Sun City, Madikwe Game Reserve is the 5th biggest game reserve existing in South Africa. Though it is considered as one of the best protected areas for Big 5 games still is lesser known, indicating that tourists can have a more fabulous safari experience here.

A unique feature of Madikwe Game Reserve is its geographical location,  which is a transition zone on the borders of the Kalahari desert – the natural habitat of many rare animals and subtropical woodlands. The climate condition ranges from mild to hot but can be opposite in nights of winter. With hundreds of bird species and big five animals, Madikwe can give a joyous safari experience to tourists all the time. It is nearby Pilanesberg National Park in Sun City and prominent with a number of luxury accommodation choices available in community lodges and  luxury hotels that are found in a zone free from malaria.
