We’re on our way to Leopard Rock Lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve for a 7 night getaway to the bush. My last safari holiday was at Ulusaba Game Reserve-a truly incredible experience that you can read about here.
Our flight from Cape Town to Lanseria is uneventful but I always love looking over the crop circles and meandering rivers along the way. I’d show you pictures but Kalula need to clean their plane windows!
After arriving at Lanseria we rented a car for the short +-3 hr road trip to Madikwe Game Reserve. Leopard Rock Lodge is stunning! It is a house with communal kitchen and living areas, while all the bedrooms are situated outside along pathways. Each accommodation villa has complete privacy, en-suite bathrooms and a small sitting area where you have your basic tea & coffee facilities.
The main lodge consists of a huge kitchen, dining area, lounge, bar and separate TV room overlooking the water hole. Sun loungers surround the swimming pool and a short walk takes you to the braai area, fire pit and jacuzzi.
Our ranger, Nadia, is awesome. On the very first day we spotted all big 5!
