THAKADU RIVER CAMP

Located in the eastern region of Madikwe Private Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa, is the community run tented camp, Thakadu River Camp. Tucked within a riverine canopy along the banks of the Marico River, Thakadu is surrounded by tree-tops, nature and sheer tranquility. The influence of the river is very apparent, with the trees, birds and water providing a peaceful and tranquil mood within the camp. There is an open-plan reception, lounge and dining area. The lodge pool and bar overlook the river and a traditional boma falls within a glade of natural riverine forest where nature envelops the camp.

TENTED SUITES
Thakadu consists of 12 tented units including four family units. The tents are set on wooden platforms each with their own viewing deck. Comfortably furnished and with a strong Afro-Asian safari ambience the tents feature en-suite bathrooms with an indoor shower and separate bath, mosquito nets draped over double or twin beds, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities and glass sliding doors that open onto the viewing deck.

LEISURE & ACTIVITIES
Activities from Thakadu include morning and afternoon game drives, birding, bush walks and star gazing. All the game drives are led by experienced and highly trained rangers who have a vast knowledge of both the fauna and flora in the area. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy early morning as well as evening game drives where the chances of spotting the Big Five, are high. Both morning and evening game drives offer completely different opportunities and sightings. Hear the sounds of a wide range of birdlife too, and have your camera and binoculars on hand.
