Nkurru Lodge, Madikwe

As you read this I am currently on safari at this beautiful destination. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is the first safari of the year that I am hosting. This destination is a very special destination for me and one that I always love hosting.

It is such a diverse safari in terms of landscape and wildlife, with plenty on offer and great photographic opportunities.

What I love about the Madikwe safari is that we take full exclusive use of the 10 sleeper lodge, this means that the feel of the camp is very relaxed and very homely. The managers, Monique and Grant are also great hosts and from the moment you arrive you feel welcomed and like you are walking into your own home.

The camp and main area is beautifully designed with plenty of space and also offers a training room along with a TV for those big sporting events you don't want to miss out on. Having said that, this the perfect destination to sit back relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings. In front of camp, there is a waterhole. This waterhole is the most productive waterhole I have ever seen inside of a camp. Whether it be the dry months of winter or the beautiful vibrant colors of summer, the waterhole offers great value with a number of animals including, general game, a variety of birds, elephants, white and black rhino, spotted hyena, brown hyena and the occasional lion and leopard visiting the waterhole, it is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy what the bush has to offer.

Nkurru lodge is situated in the heart of the reserve, this is a huge bonus as it allows us to explore a variety of different areas.

This safari, although it is local for me, is one of my favorite safaris.

Below I will share a link that will take you to a blog post I did the last time I was at Nkurru and what my guests and I got to experience.

I have no doubt this trip will be different, as every safari is unpredictable and unknown and that is what keeps us going back for more.

With that said, take a look at the link below...
