Located in South Africa along the Botswana border, 20km from Gaborone, the reserve lies within a transition region between Lowveld bushveld and the Kalahari thornveld. As a result the region is host to an incredible diversity of species from both ecosystems.

Geographically the region has enormous volcanic intrusions known as Inselbergs, wide open plains and the riverine environment along the Marico River in the east of the reserve.

Wildlife

The rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of game and the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. Madikwe is home to 66 mammal species including the Big Five and more than 300 resident and migrant bird species.

Please note: No day visitors may enter Madikwe without booking through one of the lodges. There are no camping or self-catering facilities and there are also no barbeque or picnic facilities.
