About Thakadu River Camp

The Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the few reserves in southern Africa, which is malaria free. Located in South Africa along the Botswana border and 20 kilometres from Gaborone, the reserve lies within a transition region between lowveld bushveld and the Kalahari thornveld.

As a result the region is host to an incredible diversity of species from both ecosystems. Geographically the region has enormous volcanic intrusions known as Inselbergs, wide open plains and the riverine environment along the Marico River in the east of the reserve.

Thakadu River Camp is set within the riverine canopy along the banks of the Marico River in the eastern sector of the Madikwe Game Reserve. The camp comprises 12 tented suites, each with their own viewing deck overlooking the Marico River.

Accommodation

The Lodge offers twelve tented suites - 4 are family units, with extra queen sized sleeper couch. All with Indoor bath and shower and each with own viewing deck. The interior of the tented accommodation is uniquely designed to incorporate a full bathroom. Each tent has a sliding door that opens onto a private deck overlooking the river and is equipped with indoor bath and shower, air-conditioning and tea & coffee making facilities.

Echoes of Africa are everywhere, and the interiors have a strong Afro-Asian influence, with the use of natural stones, fibres, fabrics and carpets. Traditional artifacts and rustic decor, together with the river setting have all been designed to bring about a sense of adventure in this beautiful setting.

Facilities

The main camp at Thakadu River Camp is located between the Marico River and a small tributary of the Marico. The Lodge comprises an open plan lounge, dining and reception areas which are warm and welcoming and an oasis within the African bushveld. The attractive bar and pool area is the perfect spot to unwind and relax.

From the moment you arrive you will be delighted by the warm hospitality and personal care as you take in the lush views of the gully and river to the north. The lodge has been carefully constructed to nestle into its surroundings, with the use of wood and thatched roofs to resemble the softness of nature. A traditional lapa falls within a glade of natural riverine forest and is the perfect space to enjoy the panoramic views that surround you.
