Nestled peacefully in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range in the Northern Province, Thandeka Lodge is the ideal getaway where the weary traveler 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, birds and flora. The lodge offers a true Out-of-Africa experience, with the architecture designed around promoting close encounters with the unspoilt South African bushveld. 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 individual, luxurious tented-lodges, 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. Thandeka is a private reserve with mixed vegetation. The reserve is 1000 hectares.
Choose from one of 20 exquisite tented suites. Each tent is tucked away separately in the secluded bush, complete with private salas. Thandeka caters for couples and families, with huge, airy double and family suites to choose from.
Each en-suite room has been individually named and decorated, ensuring a unique experience every time you visit Thandeka. Enjoy miles and miles of Africa from the beautiful bubble bath or relax on the sala overlooking the bushveld plains.

Beautiful location...felt like you were in the middle of nowhere when you were just 2 hours from Johannesburg. Service was incredible, the staff there made me feel like a queen! Got to snuggle with baby lions too which was awesome!
