Carefully constructed to blend into its natural surroundings, Thakadu River Camp offers tented suites set within a riverine canopy between the Marico River and a small tributary.
A traditional lapa (courtyard enclosure) set within a glade of natural riverine forest offers panoramic views of the spectacular surroundings.
The Lodge’s open-plan lounge, dining area and reception serve as a bushveld oasis, while the bar and pool area are ideal for relaxation. The Lodge welcomes families, and while children under six cannot be permitted on standard game drives, they (and parents) are invited to a special 90-minute morning game drive designed especially for them.
Game drives are the feature attraction here. Experienced guides will lead you on early morning and evening drives. Each drive is unique, with morning drives often delivering sightings of elephant, rhino, lion and giraffe; and evening drives offering the best chance of a rare leopard sighting. The forests, grassland, dams and rocky hills provide a wide range of habitats for birds, too – and birdwatchers will be delighted by the magnificent diversity of species.
Thakadu River Camp accommodates children of all ages.
