With its lush and tranquil setting, Thakadu River Camp stands out from other game lodges. Guests immediately disconnect from everyday stress as soon as they step under the riverine canopy, along the lush banks of the Marico River. Beautifully appointed tented suites are engulfed by an impressive diversity of flora and fauna that thrive here, in the eastern sector of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
As an ecotourism partnership between North West Parks, the Molatedi Community and African Hotels and Adventures, Thakadu River Camp has been carefully constructed to blend into the bushveld. The concept is unique in that the local community owns the development, with substantial benefits accruing to its people.
Experience warm hospitality and bespoke service during your exhilarating South African safari!
Privacy and comfort are paramount to each of the 12 tented suites. Modern living combines with a strong Afro-Asian safari ambience for a truly luxurious retreat.
Four suites are family units, each with an extra queen-size sleeper couch for children.
The main lodge is a true oasis. Unwind and relax on the traditional lapa, surrounded by natural forest, and enjoy the panoramic views.
Expect international favourites and local dishes to be expertly prepared by the chefs. Dine in the boma for a traditional African spin on “eating out”.
Indulge in a rejuvenating massage treatment that will restore body, mind and spirit. All spa services are offered either in-room, or on your private deck.
Start and end your day immersed in nature. Highly trained rangers, who have vast knowledge of native fauna and flora, lead all game drives. Chances of spotting the “Big Five” are high!
As a family-friendly safari lodge, children of all ages are welcome.
