DESCRIPTION Thakadu River Camp is a wholly-owned, Community-based Tented Safari Camp within Madikwe Game Reserve. The Camp, on the banks of the Marico River, is an ecotourism partnership between North-West Parks, the Molatedi Community and African Hotels and Adventures. The community has a 45-year lease to operate a commercial lodge with traversing rights across the Reserve. The concept is unique in South Africa in that the community owns the development, with substantial benefits accruing to the community itself
