Your safety is our Priority

We have a team of dedicated physicians from Peretz Medical working with us to educate our people and look after their well-being. We have also partnered with Test Me Now who have created tailor-made solutions for the Madikwe Safari Lodge that ensure we are in line with the World Health Organisations recommendations and at the forefront of prevention.

Updated Booking Terms & Relaxed Cancellation Penalties

We understand that these are uncertain times. Our guests book their holidays to relax and unwind and therefore we have, as a lodge, taken the decision to relax our booking terms and cancellation penalties to give you peace of mind when choosing Madikwe Safari Lodge as their destination of choice, knowing that you can travel at a time when you feel comfortable.

Preventive Safety Measures

  • CLEAN SANITIZED HANDS

Alcohol based (70%) hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout each of the suites, communal areas and game drive vehicles.

  • LIMITED SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS

The suites and facilities at our lodges are all generously spaced for your comfort and peace of mind.

  • CONSTANT SURFACE DISINFECTING

All surfaces and high contact areas are continuously disinfected. Game vehicles are also sterilised before each drive.

  • PRIVATE DINING SPACE

Dining set ups have been thoughtfully considered, with tables spaced at least 2 metres apart. All meals and snacks are prepared in a controlled environment under strict hygiene standards.

  • PRECAUTIONS ON SAFARI

We will always allocate the minimum number of guests per safari vehicle, ensuring sufficient personal space for the hours spent out in the wild.

  • RAPID TESTING PARTNERS

We have partnered with Test Me Now to bring you rapid antigen testing at the lodge. Using this tool we can test any person on site with results given in 15 minutes.

  • DOCTORS ON CALL

In the event of a suspected Covid-19 case, we have set up a 24-hour hotline to a doctor on call. Using rapid antigen testing to confirm suspected cases onsite, we are able to act quickly and efficiently to insure the safety of all.

  • MEDICAL SUPPORT & EDUCATION

Dr A Peretz and Dr E Peretz (Peretz Medical) ensure our staff are regularly educated on the best hygiene and safety practices. Their frequent visits to our lodge keep us aligned to the highest global standards.

  • PRECAUTIONARY ISOLATION SUITES

Separate isolation rooms have been setup for suspected cases (pre and post testing). Guests will get PCR results within 48 hours and can then decide to stay at the lodge or return home should they be unwell.

  • EMERGENCY SERVICE PARTNERS

We have developed clear procedures with our local emergency partners on the exact course of action that is to be taken in the event of a covid-19 case. Providing easy access to South Africa’s private healthcare network.
