Explore the Etali Guest Experience!

At Etali we believe that every part of your luxury African safari should be a memorable experience. To achieve this we focus on the aspects that we consider core to our success:

Safaris at Etali

The game drives were amazing, our guide and tracker were a terrific team, so knowledgable! We saw the big 5 and beyond, the variety of animals and birds far exceeded our expectations.

Game drives through the Madikwe Game Reserve last about 3 hours and take place twice daily around dawn and dusk, when the park wildlife tends to be most active. Guests are accompanied by a professional field guide & game tracker. Guests have the opportunity to view park wildlife closely during drives and are also treated to refreshments in the bush.

Wildlife Viewing at Etali

Game viewing in the Madikwe Game Reserve remains a core part of the luxury African safari experience at Etali. Guests are offered multiple contact points with the natural surroundings including twice daily game drives, optional game walks and, our personal favourite, armchair safaris from our main deck and rooms overlooking the Etali waterhole and surrounding areas.

Park Regulations

Madikwe rules include game drive and walk limitations based on guest age. Guests under 6 years of age are not allowed on game drives. We can arrange for bumble drives for younger guests. Additionally guests under the age of 16 are not allowed on game walks while guests over 60 years of age require a doctors note to validate their health in order to go on game walks.
