Set along the banks of the Marico River, Thakadu River Camp provides luxurious tented accommodation and a stylish, comfortable base from which to explore the splendid game viewing that only Madikwe Game Reserve can provide.
With its strong Afro-Asian safari ambiance, Thakadu River Camp offers 12 luxury tented suites, perfectly blended within their natural surroundings, and each with their own viewing deck overlooking the Marico River.
Three of the suites are family units, with an extra double-size sleeper couch. All suites include an indoor bath and shower. The main lodge area is built on stilts within the river-front vegetation and guarantees a serene setting for breakfast and dinners. A fire-lit boma serves locally inspired cuisine on fair-weather nights and there is a lapa set within a riverine glade from where you can soak up the mesmerising views of the lazily meandering river and the terrain beyond. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy early morning and evening game drives in open game viewing vehicles conducted by qualified game rangers. www.thakadurivercamp.co.za
