The Lelapa Lodge at Madikwe Safari Lodge is an excellent choice for a malaria-free family safari. Private plung pools and en-suite facilities offer exclusivity and expert chefs cater to even the fussiest young eaters. Wood-burning fireplaces offer the comforts of home and expansive views immerse you into the spectacular natural environment outside your window.
The Eco House provides educational entertainement especially for kids and is buzzing with activity at all times. Parents can choose to learn alongside or leave their youngsters in the expert care of staff, stealing a few guilt-free hours for themselves. Children may also help learn to bake in the kitchen or make pizza in the boma.
Special children’s game drives take place around the lodge each day – parents are free to join, provided there’s enough space, but may also choose to take an adult-only game drive or bush walk with the knowledge their precious youngsters will be safe and well provided for. Bug CSI, mini-bush walks and dung tracking are some of the many activities that they will also take part in when they’re not busy in the Eco House or on a game drive. At night everyone comes together to dine before discovering constellations beneath the stars or enjoying safari games.
