The Madikwe Game Reserve is North East of Johannesburg, close to South Africa's border with Botswana. The drive from Jo'Burg takes about 4 hours but it is also possible to access the reserve by light aircraft. Some of the lodges cater for day visitors from Gaborone. I spent a most enjoyable 5 nights at the Etali Lodge. These are the shots I took during the first game drive.

All comments welcome, thank you.

Wow. Can't pick a favorite as they're all so well done.
Can't wait to see day 2
Thank you.

Very attractive series! The last one is especially intimate. I've been to Madikwe twice and both times were really special. Your photos make me want to return.
By the way, if accuracy is important to you, note that the spelling is Madikwe, not Madiwke.
Mike - many thanks for spotting my stupid typo with the name. :facepalm:
