About Thakadu River Camp.

Thakadu River Camp stands out from the other game lodges in the Madikwe, in that it is ideally positioned in a transitional area which means it draws wildlife from two different, yet complementary, ecosystems.
The lodge offers a 5 star bush experience with only 12 tented suites in the heart of malaria free untamed bushveld of the Madikwe Game Reserve.


Where is Thakadu River Camp?

Thakadu lies in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve within a riverine canopy between the Marico River and a small tributary of the Marico. Distance from Johannesburg between 3.5 and 4 hours.
