Madikwe has a diverse geology and broad mix of habitats which allows a wide range of African wildlife to flourish ‘ including the Big 5, cheetah and a thriving population of wild dog. In recent years there has been habitat restoration work and a massive reintroduction programme dubbed ‘Operation Phoenix’ that has returned all of the large mammal species known historically to occur in the region.
