The reserve emphasizes the protection of the animals in their natural habitat; visitors must respect restrictions on vehicles. Take time to see the highly endangered African wild dog.

We had an excellent time in the Madikwe Nature Reserve. We saw the Big 5 all on one game drive and wildlife was in abundance. So many elephants! more »
