Kukama Lodge

Kukama Lodge is a family friendly, 10 bed, private game lodge situated in Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa.

The Reserve covers 75 000 traversable hectares and is home to the Big Five, cheetah and wild dogs as well as over 350 bird species in a breathtaking landscape.

Kukama Lodge is an approximate 350 km drive from OR Tambo International Airport or Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg. We recommend coming in a high clearance vehicle, although with careful driving a normal sedan will handle dirt roads in the reserve; we can recommend road transfer companies if you would prefer not to drive.

Federal Air offers a daily one-hour charter flight into the Reserve or, by arrangement, you could fly yourself to Madikwe’s western airstrip.

Madikwe Game Reserve is malaria free, which makes it the perfect bush destination for those traveling with children.

Experience the most exclusive South African safaris, dining and hospitality with Kukama Lodge.
