Rhulani Safari Lodge is a small and private Five Star Safari Lodge situated in Madikwe Game Reserve, a malaria-free Big 5 game reserve, 4.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. An African welcome awaits you at the lodge. With our team of proud and passionate staff we strive to give our guests not only unforgettable game viewing experiences, but also luxurious and relaxing accommodation with personalised attention. Two game drives per day in an open vehicle and absolute privacy when in the lodge contribute to an exciting experience. Enrich the daily program with a massage on the private deck, or a bushwalk into wildlife. After all, Rhulani means "relax" so we invite you to sit back and enjoy the African bush with us!
