Stay at Madikwe Safari Lodge, Kopano Lodge

Madikwe Game Reserve is famed for offering guests quick and direct access to some of South Africa’s best Big Five safari experiences. The reserve is located just a four hour drive or a short flight from Johannesburg, allowing guests to be on an afternoon game drive that same day. Kopano directly translated means ‘small gathering’. This intimate lodge is comprised of just 4 Suites (each with private plunge pool) which share a magnificent common area. Each Suite also comes with an en-suite bathroom, private deck and a wood-burning fireplace.

A stay at Kopono lodge offers guests an unforgettable experience of the bush either on nature walks, or twice daily game drives in an open 4×4 safari vehicle. The reserve is renowned for its varied habitats, home to an array of African wildlife which includes the Big Five. The team at Kopono lodge will ensure your stay is unforgettable and can arrange anything from romantic boma dinners and bush breakfasts to bird watching or astronomy lessons.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!

Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.


These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
