Madikwe Hillhouse Lodge is owner Vance Kershner’s beautifully appointed private bush retreat, which is made available intermittently during the year to book on an exclusive basis.
Exclusive-use means there will be no other guests or parties in the lodge during your stay.  With its informal yet stylish and intimate atmosphere, you and your family or guests can call Hillhouse Lodge your African home, with a dedicated team including hosts and private chef to ensure meticulous and completely personal service.  
A private vehicle, personal field guide and tracker complete this bespoke safari experience.
We look forward to sharing a piece of our Bush Paradise with you!


We are passionate about food!

Informal, yet refined traditional South African meals are created using local and seasonal ingredients.

To accompany all the dining experiences, we offer a gorgeous selection of South African wines, local alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, bottled water, teas & .

We can accommodate a variety of dietary preferences!  However due to our remote location, we ask that you please advise us of any specific dietary requirements prior to arrival.
