  • Some time back my Husband two daughters and myself had the absolute privilege of staying at Thandeka. We had the most amazing time. Very dedicated staff all of whom always friendly. I thought that my youngest daughter would be bored out of her mind. 5 years old at the time, but an unexpected thing happened. She went from been highly strung to calm and quite. The only thing that made me sad is that we have absolutely no photos to remember the experience with. Somehow we had managed to loss our memory card with all our wonderful memories. Maybe one day we will be able to get the money together for a second visit.

  • Our weekend stay at Thandeka Lodge was too perfect! The staff was friendly and accommodating, especially Bianca who went out of her way to make our experience romantic and comfortable. The tents were luxurious and made us feel safe and really comfortable. The food was seriously EXCELLENT! every single meal was so good! The game drives were lead by really cool individuals who were super informative and accommodating. It was a really great first trip to the bush and would definitely recommend this lodge to other young couples! Thank you for having us :)

  • A fabulous place to go. I went just for the wildlife knowing that you can arrange to walk with lions and cheetahs. The animals don't always co-operate and we couldn't find the tame lions but, the cheetahs were amazing. The guide that drives you around is incredibly knowledgeable and a good source of information. Well worth a visit. The only downside is that no one seemed to have any change so take some smaller notes as the souvenirs are limited.


Thandeka Lodge

Situated in the peaceful and magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range of the Limpopo province in South Africa, Thandeka Lodge offers you the opportunity to relax in nature and in comfort at the same time. The savannah and its rich array of wildlife await you when you select this lodge for your African safari or getaway.

We at ASG love how the main building is designed with both wildlife viewing and relaxation in mind. There’s a sense of colonial Africa and also a dose of modern design sensibilities that combine to make you feel right at home.

Your accommodations at Thandeka Lodge are individual tented spaces, each uniquely decorated and hidden in the bush for your privacy. While there are 20 unique tented suites, you won’t be intruded upon by other guests because each is so secluded. There’s a perfect suite choice for couples or families.

How you approach your African experience while staying at Thandeka Lodge is up to you. Your hosts provide adequate opportunities for relaxing and watching over the plains from your private deck. And the ensuite bathrooms are equipped for relaxing in the bathtub. Plus, there are the game drives, the pool, the nearby golf and so much more when you have a need for some activity. Birdwatching is excellent as well.

You can build an African experience with as much or as little excitement as you like when you rough it in complete comfort at Thandeka Lodge.

There's always something to do when you stay at Thandeka Lodge – and plenty of downtime for examining the view and relaxing in the ensuite bath. In addition to game drives, consider added activities.
