About the Accommodation

Thakadu Camp is a safari lodge situated just South of Ghanzi, overlooking a calcrete pan and a floodlit waterhole. The lodge is surrounded by ancient Leadwood trees, which thrives on this ridge and provide us with natural shade for the accommodation.

Thakadu offers accommodation, activities, a well-stocked bar and restaurant and a curio shop with a range of crafts and some emergency supplies for travellers. We also have credit card facilities and wireless Internet available. Accommodation is provided in en-suite thatched chalets, luxurious en-suite Meru tents and budget twin-bedded cottage tents.

Our cosy restaurant overlooking the waterhole provides excellent a la carte meals at reasonable prices, and a selection of wines. A raised swimming pool is available to guests and also overlooks the pan. We have a fresh produce stall situated at the entrance of the reserve which sells fresh home-grown vegetables, venison and ice.

The pan at Thakadu naturally holds water for a few months after rain, but we supplement this to provide a waterhole throughout the year. The Ghanzi district is blessed with an abundance of wildlife and birds and these are drawn to Thakadu pan and can be seen while sitting on the veranda or at the pool. Game drives and night drives are available on Kabakae Game Reserve where large herds of eland and other Kalahari wildlife may be seen. Guests are also welcome to use their own vehicles on our network of roads. We provide guided bush walks or, for the adventurous, a number of hiking trails and guided horse trails throughout the property.
