Thakadu River Camp
Located in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve along the Botswana border Thakadu River Camp offers tented accommodation that lies within a transition region between Lowveld bushveld and the Kalahari thornveld.
Thakadu River Camp is set in the riverine canopy along the banks of the Marico River. It comprises 12 tented suites incorporating a full bathroom, as well as its own viewing deck overlooking the river.
The main guest area is made up of an open plan lounge, dining and reception area, with the pool and bar offering views of the gully and river to the north. A traditional lapa falls within a glade of natural riverine forest.
The décor of the camp has a strong Afro-Asian safari ambience to it, with use of natural stone, fibres, cloth and carpets as well as metal and wood featuring prominently throughout the camp. The influence of the river is very apparent, with the trees, birds and water providing a peaceful and tranquil mood within the camp.
Madikwe is home to a tremendous diversity of fauna and flora including both black and white rhino, buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog.
Whilst out on game drives, you are accompanied by well-trained and informative rangers.
Other activities include tracking, stargazing, bush dining and birding.
