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.

Accommodation

Thakadu River Camp is located on the banks of the Marico River, an exclusive lodge offering a maximum of 24 people a bush experience which is impossible to replicate in larger concerns. The influence of the river is very apparent, with the trees, birds and water providing a peaceful and tranquil mood within the camp.

Thakadu River Camp comprises twelve tented suites, each with their own viewing deck overlooking the Marico River. Of the twelve tented suites, four are family units, each with an extra sleeper couch catering for children.

Activities

Morning and afternoon/evening game-drives in open game-viewing vehicles, bush sundowners and drink stops on the Reserve, visits to hides. Regrettably, due to safety concerns, children under 6 years of age are unable to participate in game-drives (shorter kiddies game drives can be arrange after breakfast).

Wildlife

Thakadu River Camp is a game-rich country with Big Five (black & white rhino), elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard) cheetah, wild dog, hyaenas, hippos, kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, giraffe and impala, A paradise for bird watchers.
