The accommodation at Etali Safari Lodge exudes an atmosphere of tranquillity and privacy. The luxurious, thatched air-conditioned suites are set apart in their own bushveld domain. The décor comprises a mixture of cool and earthy colours in contrast to the stark beauty of the African sweet-thorn Acacia trees. Suites feature private outdoor decks with whirlpools, ideal for sipping a cocktail while watching the spectacular African sunset. Experience a shower outdoors surrounded by the sights and sounds of the African bush, then enjoy a peaceful night's sleep in a large comfortable bed with fine crisp linen.

Meals are varied, light and healthy with lots of fresh seasonal and organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs. The menu changes daily as the talented chefs select the best local produce on offer.
The Madikwe Game Reserve portrays eco-tourism at its best. In conjunction with local communities and the private sector, the North West Province Parks and Tourism Board set aside a game rich area of 75 000 hectares on the border of Botswana as a conservation partnership.
Safaris in this area of untamed African bush are exciting and unpredictable. Game drives accompanied by a professional ranger offer opportunities to view leopard, black rhino, elephant, lion, zebra, wild dog, giraffe and many other species. The Madikwe Game Reserve is also home to a vast diversity of birds with over 300 recorded species.
