AHA Thakadu River Camp

Description

Thakadu River Camp is an Eco-tourism partnership between North-West Parks, the Molatedi Community and the operator, The Nature Workshop. The community has a 45-year lease to operate a commercial lodge with traversing rights across the Madikwe Game Reserve. The concept is unique in South Africa in that the community owns the development, with substantial benefits accruing back to the community itself.

Thakadu River Camp is set within the riverine canopy along the banks of the Marico River and consists of 12 tented suites, each with their own viewing deck overlooking the river. The tents are spacious and are superbly decorated and appointed. The core of this project's success lies in its prime location: the Madikwe Game Reserve. This area is located along the Botswana border and 20km from Gaberone, one of the few reserves in southern Africa which is malaria free.

  • Very relaxing stay.
    13 July 2015

    We stayed at Thakadu River Camp for 3 nights, and it was a very nice, relaxing experience. The food was lovely and the staff very helpful and friendly. Our game ranger also had a vast knowledge of the bush and went out of his way to show us Madikwe.

    Madikwe game reserve was spectacular as ever. Thakadu River Camp was good in many ways, Tented accommodation and Game drives. I thought the food offering was relatively poor. Generally 3 course dinners with no choices. Food was also lacking in imagination, very uninspiring!! Seemed to be "on the cheap", which I have not experienced before in Madikwe Lodges. We will not return.
