About the Lodge

The Camp is set within this riverine canopy and comprises 12 tented suites, each with their own viewing deck overlooking the Marico River.

The tents are large and spacious and are wonderfully decorated and appointed. Each tent has a sliding door that opens onto a private deck overlooking the river.

The main camp comprises an open plan lounge, dining and reception area, with the pool and bar area offering views of the gully and river to the north. A traditional lapa falls within a glade of natural riverine forest. 

Thakadu’s decor has a strong Afro Asian Safari ambience to it, with use of natural stone, fibres, cloth and carpets as well as metal and wood featuring prominently throughout the camp. The influence of the river is very apparent, with the trees, birds and water providing a peaceful and tranquil mood within the camp.
