No more than four hours' drive from Johannesburg, the River House is perched on the banks of The Marico River in Madikwe Game Reserve, one of the largest in Africa. Even as you approach, you’ll appreciate just how special this is. Three spacious double bedrooms with every modern comfort mean the House can accommodate 6 adults and 4 children in style.
Almost certainly, it will be the heated infinity pool and loungers that draw you initially. Begin your stay with a relaxing dip and then decide how you’d like your stay to unfold. A game drive to spot Springbok followed by a bonfire feast prepared by your own chef? Or a fishing trip washed down with a picnic in the bush? The choices are only limited by your imagination.
A malaria-free reserve in the region of South African made famous by the writer Herman Charles Bosman, Madikwe is infinitely fascinating at every age. And with children of all ages catered for so well at the River House, a relaxing family stay is assured here.
