Nestled peacefully in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range in the Limpopo Province, Thandeka Lodge 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.

Come and experience spectacular vistas and this majestic wilderness in the luxury that is Thandeka Lodge. Only two short hours drive from Johannesburg, this privately owned and run reserve is a must for everyone, from the bushveld connoisseur to the romantic at heart.

Thandeka is a malaria-free reserve that homes an abundant variety of wildlife, with the architecture designed around promoting close encounters with the unspoilt bush. The sleek main building rings of an era of colonialism with a contemporary twist, while the interior is exquisitely decorated in a colonial-contemporary style.

Accommodation takes the form of 20 opulent en-suite tents, each one decorated with unique touches, hidden in the splendour of the bush. Thandeka Lodge is situated 35km from Bela Bela, (formerly Warmbaths), in the Waterberg district of the Limpopo Province and is a private reserve measuring approximately 1000 hectares.
