It's a warm summer night, and I've just arrived at the boma, where I'm greeted by friendly staff and a drink, before enjoying a delicious meal under a blaze of stars. Yes, this really is the life. Madikwe Hills is a magical place tucked away amongst boulders and ancient trees. Home to the Big Five, the rare Wild Dog and other amazing wildlife, Madikwe Hills is definitely a nature-lovers paradise. But it's also more. Fantastic luxury and warm friendly staff all contribute to making this an unforgettable experience.
I stayed in the Main Lodge, and my suite had its own private plunge pool with spectacular views. Everything about it spells relaxation and rejuvenation. Obviously the game viewing is a must. The rangers are incredibly knowledgeable and the sights and sounds are wonderful. And if you want to pamper yourself you could do worse than a spa treatment. Pure magic!
