We like

One of South Africa's more remote reserves, malaria-free Madike Game Reserve offers 690 square kilometers of pristine bushveld. Occupying a stunning spot overlooking the Marico River, Aha Thakadu River Camp is at the heart of the action, just steps from the waters where lions, elephants and more come to drink. Expert-led game drives are offered twice a day, with local rangers on hand to share their in-depth wildlife knowledge, identify paw prints or show you the difference between a fish eagle and a goshawk. Stargazing trips are also on offer come nightfall, when you can experience the truly wild nature of the African bush.
