Take part in two daily game drives with our talented and professional game rangers. Experience the unique and magical African bush that South Africa has to offer. You and your guests will be expertly guided whilst sitting in the safety of our 4x4 game vehicle.
The Madikwe game reserve offers one of the best safari experiences in Southern Africa in respect to the shear variety of African flora and fauna on display. You can find the Big 5 within the reserve as well as some lesser known and rare species of animals including the spectacular and illusive African painted dog (wild dog).
Whilst on your journey, expect to receive expert knowledge from our game rangers and make a few informative stops along the way. Our game rangers are also eager any questions you may have.
Our game drives take place in the mornings and afternoons where you will set off into the Madikwe game reserve. After your safari adventure, you will pause in the park to enjoy some early morning coffee, tea or hot chocolate along with a tasty rusk or two. In the afternoon, your pause in the park will include some South African snack favourites including biltong and other surprises our chef may have in store. One of the unsurpassed parts of your afternoon stop is watching a South African sunset in all its glory with a bush-classic Gin and Tonic in your hand.
Experience the unrivalled South African bush with Kukama Lodge in the Madikwe game reserve!
Overview of safaris / game drives:
•Expertly guided tours by qualified game rangers

Grace is our chef. She has a natural flair for food that has been consolidated by dedicated training over the years. Grace prepares all the meals at the lodge with the help of Joyce, Idah and Johannes – our braai master and maintenance go-to guy.
Joyce and Idah are Kukama’s ‘Jill’s-of-all-Trades’ – they keep the Lodge and suites spotlessly clean, look after our guests at meal times and beyond. They will do laundry on request and offer reviving massage treatments. Their creative touches from turn-downs to table settings are reminders of your warm welcome in the African bush and our home away from home.

I was born in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, but lived in Johannesburg from a young age until relocating to the United Kingdom almost 12 years ago. I live with my partner, Sonja in Oxshott in Surrey. I still own a number of properties in South Africa, and each year we spend approximately 4 - 5 weeks at these various properties. We both love travelling and socialising, hosting dinners and cocktails parties and make the most of London's West End when we get the chance. We also love the outdoors and I play tennis and golf.
