About Thakadu River Camp

Thakadu River Camp is set within the ravine canopy along the banks of the Marico River and comprises twelve tented suites, each with their own viewing deck overlooking the Marico River. The tents are large and spacious and are wonderfully decorated and appointed.

Thakadu River Camp is a wholly-owned Community-based Tented Safari Camp within Madikwe Game Reserve. The Tented Camp, located on the banks of the Marico River, is an eco tourism partnership between North-West Parks, the Molatedi Community and the operator.

Lodge Accommodation

The main camp is located between the Marico River and a small tributary of the Marico. The main area comprises an open plan lounge, dining and reception area, with the pool and bar area offering views of the gully and river to the north. A traditional ‘lapa’ falls within a glade of natural ravine 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.
