Jamala Madikwe

A Tribute to African Elegance. Owner-managed and run, Jamala Madikwe, Royal Safari Lodge offers an intimate bush experience, where personal service and attention to detail are the cornerstones of every waking moment. The lodge successfully combines colonial style and African eccentricity in a delightful marriage of opposites.
Set in the pristine 75 000 hectare Malaria-Free Madikwe Game Reserve,Jamala Madikwe is the ideal place for that ultimate safari experience.

“JAMALA” is the Swahili word for “natural elegance”. Elegant (adj.) – is defined as “graceful and stylish; pleasantly ingenious and simple”.
“SAFARI”, another Swahili word that means “journey” or “to travel”, but has come to mean so very much more. Imbued with a sense of the exotic, more typically a sense of Africa, the word safari has today become symbolic of something far more romantic; it evokes images of adventure and stylish indulgence.

Highlights

We need places and moments that make us pause and take time out. Time to think. To listen. To return a smile. To write a letter. Things that make us focus on what really matters in life. On friendship and feelings. Thoughts and dreams. Jamala Madikwe is that place.

Need to Know

Malaria-Free Jamala Madikwe boasts a very active private waterhole with views from every deck across the open savanna grasslands which gave rise to our now legendary "Sofa Safari". The experience allows you to enjoy lounging on the couch with maybe a G&T in-hand whilst watching the antics at the waterhole.
