GETTING TO MADIKWE SAFARI LODGE 

Departing From Johannesburg:

  • Travel to Fourways Shopping Centre via Rivonia Road or the N1 South highway. Follow directions to Hartbeespoort Dam. Keep going straight, and turn left onto the N14 highway, following Krugersdorp signposts
  • Travel in a southwesterly direction
  • At the four-way stop, turn right onto the N14 towards Ventersdorp
  • At the T-junction turn right towards Ventersdorp / Hekpoort
  • The road then splits again — take the left fork towards Ventersdorp
  • Follow this road until you get to a four-way junction; here you will turn right towards Rustenburg
  • Pass through the town of Magaliesberg and take the left fork in the road – the R509 to Boons and Derby (approximately 53km)
  • Proceed through Derby towards Koster (approximately 17km)
  • In Koster, turn right towards Swartruggens (R509) for 34km
  • Turn left at the stop street onto the N4 to Swartruggens, Groot Marico and Zeerust. (Be sure to refuel in Zeerust as there is no fuel available in the Reserve)

  • Please contact the Lodge on +27 18 350 9902 to advise us when you have passed the town of Zeerust.

PLEASE NOTE

This route is recommended for guests travelling in sedan vehicles as the road condition is really great with gravel roads only in the reserve.

A GPS will not bring you directly to Madikwe Safari Lodge if utilised from ORT/JHB/Pretoria or Sun City

Please advise us of your estimated time of arrival, and please check the afternoon game drive schedules to ensure you will be on time

Please drive carefully and be aware of village pedestrians, their children and animals

There are always a number of speed traps with traffic police along the way, so please be sure to follow the speed restrictions

The elephants at Madikwe Game Reserve must be treated with respect, so please keep a safe distance

Please take note that the gate opens at 06h00 and closes at 21h00. Please advise the Lodge if you will be arriving outside of these times so that the relevant arrangements can be made.

There is an ALTERNATIVE route which is recommended for guests travelling with 4×4 vehicles as there is a 30 km gravel road that might not be ideal with other vehicles. It is however approximately 100 km shorter than the road via Zeerust. Please speak to your consultant to be advised on these specific road directions.

REAL CUSTOMER REVIEWS

We’re passionate about Africa, read why our travelers agree. 

five star rating

” Always book my African travels through African Overland Tours as they are incredibly friendly and helpful, they always get back to you quickly, staff are knowledgeable, they use local people which I think is very important and offer great value for money.”

Review by Karen A

five star rating

” The tour I had booked at African Overland Tours exceeded my expectations – it was great fun with many great experiences. Before, during and after the booking I felt so well informed, consulted and supported by Huntley Cronje (Thanks to you again!) who answered all my (countless) questions with his outstanding friendlyness. Booking, payment, the journey… everything went very smoothly without troubles or anything. You helped me to enjoy a perfect adventure!”

Review by Pia W

five star rating” Nicky, from AOT, was extremely helpful in planning our mother / daughter African holiday. We were combining several tours within a tight time frame and Nicky was genuinely interested in listening to our ideas and preferences. Her friendly enthusiasm, local knowledge and tour-guiding experience were invaluable! Most local (Australian) travel agents had never been to Africa, so could only give us a brochure from their limited tour providers. Nicky answered our many questions, explored various tour combinations, negotiated discounts and covered every detail of our trip, including private transfers and visa information! Would definitely recommend AOT.
