Wonderful place to get back in touch with African sites, sounds and smells. Staff are attentive and always wanting to please. Food was outstanding, rooms have everything you need! Including 'Gym in a basket' which is a quirky but novel idea as you never stop...More

Thank you for your enquiry.
May is generally a cooler month with very few mosquitos, I would however suggest using an insect repellent in the evenings (this is also supplied by the Lodge). It would not be necessary during the day.
Fortunately there are no tsetse flies in Madikwe.
We looking forward to welcoming you to Madikwe Safari Lodge.

Hi there, I went to Madikwe last summer and also brought my camera (Canon EOS 1DX; full format). I was very happy with my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L lens in terms of zoom factor and handling. Usually the rangers get you very closely to the game, so even the 70 - 300mm will do in my opinion (though you will have to crop your fotos in post-production).
Enjoy your trip - Madikwe is amazing.
