About Thandeka Lodge and Spa

Nestled peacefully in the magnificent Waterberg mountain range in the Limpopo Province, Thandeka Lodge and Spa is the ideal getaway where the weary traveller can relax and revel in the exquisite natural beauty of the bushveld savannah and its rich wildlife heritage in the malaria-free reserve.

Accommodation takes the form of 20 opulent en-suite Tents, each one decorated with unique touches and hidden in the splendour of the bush. The lodge caters for couples and families with huge double and family suites to choose from.

Activities and facilities at the lodge or its surrounding areas include white lion tours, cheetah interactions and bush walks, spa facilities and conference facilities that would be perfect for groups of up to 50 delegates.

                  Set in a beautiful location - had a very good stay. Very friendly staff, and tents were secluded and very comfortable. Spa was not operating, however - although the prices were a bit on the high side, and not all of the services were available.
