- Each suite has open-fronted lounges, private sundecks and spacious bathrooms that can be opened to the forest, creating the feeling of really being ‘in’ the bush
- There’s a great infinity pool in the common area, which is important as Madikwe can get quite hot

- Conveniently located only a 3.5hr drive away from Johannesburg
