Thakadu River Camp

Discover Thakadu River Camp

Overlooking the Morico River, in the Madikwe Game Reserve, lies the aha-run Thakadu River Camp.With only twelve tented guest suites, including 4 family units, Thakadu is a great base while you enjoy the wonderful wildlife of the reserve. Thanks to the transitional location in Madikwe all the African Big5 can be seen here along with a wealth of other birds and animals.

The tented, guest suites are all well-positioned with en-suite facilities, large comfortable beds, sitting area and a private viewing deck.
Nestled within the surrounding foliage on the river bank, the main camp building boasts an open-plan lounge, dining and reception area with the pool and bar area overlooking the river to the north and a secluded outdoor boma for starlit dining.
From the experienced game rangers to the excellent kitchen staff, all aspects of your time here will be carefully attended to, to ensure you have wonderful memories to take away.
