When you book a private transfer with Safari Link, you can be confident that you will have a remarkable and educational experience because the staff is made up of travel specialists, wildlife guides, and environment enthusiasts who are all professionals in their disciplines.

Although it is feasible to visit Madikwe Game Reserve on one’s own, going with a reputable tour operator such as Safari Link can transform an average trip into an unforgettable one.

The comprehensive knowledge of southern Africa and its national parks and game reserves distinguishes Safari Link’s team from many other operators; as a result, travellers can expect a hassle-free and memorable trip.

Safari Link offers private transfers to Madikwe ranging from day-to-day transportation to overnight lodgings and all in between.

Their travel specialists are ready to offer you the most unforgettable experience possible by arranging a private transfer from Johannesburg to Madikwe Game Reserve.

Despite being one of the lesser-known parks, this “hidden gem” is widely regarded as one of Africa’s best conservation destinations, offering travellers the opportunity to go on safari with the “Big 5”.

Madikwe is a malaria-free zone with a range of luxurious resorts as well as communal lodges.

Alternatively, Safarilink also offers Pilanesberg private transfers.

Connecting Johannesburg with Madikwe Game Reserve through a Private Transfer

Madikwe Game Reserve is South Africa’s sixth-largest game reserve and one of its lesser-known parks. This makes it a hidden gem because it is recognized as one of Africa’s top conservation zones, offering the Big 5 in a 680 km2 park with both upscale lodges and communal lodges in a malaria-free zone.

Madikwe Game Reserve is located around 90 miles north of Zeerust, near the Kalahari Desert on the Botswana border. It takes about 3.5 hours to drive from Johannesburg/Pretoria.

Safari Connection Southern Africa understands how vital it is to have a well-organized and worry-free travel experience, therefore they also offer private shuttles and safaris to South Africa’s national parks and private game reserves, like Madikwe Game Reserve.

This way, you can enjoy maximum comfort and elegance without having to line with other people or share your personal space with others.

Because the drivers who will take you there are also qualified and certified field guides, this can only add to your unforgettable safari experience.

You and your group can travel in comfort and privacy from anywhere in Johannesburg, including the O.R. Tambo International Airport, to Madikwe Game Reserve with a private shuttle service.

Depending on the itinerary and details of your booking, a qualified driver and guide will pick you up in a luxury car and transport you to your booked lodging in the game reserve and back.

Your driver will pick you up from your hotel, guest house, or residence and transfer you to the reserve; however, if you want to be picked up directly from the airport, a meet-and-greet service is available at no extra fee.

Private shuttles to Madikwe Game Reserve reduce the inconvenience of renting a car for your safari and can save you money if you reside in Johannesburg or Pretoria because it eliminates extra mileage and wear and tear on your vehicle.

This is the excellent alternative for first-time tourists from other countries who value their privacy because they can sit back, relax, and let their vacation begin the moment they board the elegant transfer vehicle.

This form of private transfer also saves you money because if you stay at a premium lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve, you won’t require a car. Your car will be parked in the blazing sun nonetheless, because some resorts do not allow self-drive safari tours. It is an even bigger waste of money if you rent a car.

Because O.R. Tambo International Airport is a huge airport, foreigners can take advantage of the convenience of the transfer car driver meeting them there. When you arrive at the airport, your driver will be waiting for you as you walk through the terminal. You don’t have to waste time looking for a car rental service and picking up a rented car with all of the associated paperwork.

You simply board the transfer vehicle waiting outside the airport terminal building, and your safari trip begins immediately – with no worry or problems.
