Madi a Thavha is peaceful, friendly, joyful and relaxing. Everything at the lodge feels right; the food is delicious, the staff is excellent, the decorations and rooms are outstanding and the location is beautiful. You can tell that a lot of love has been put into this accommodation, as a guest you get to share and enjoy a piece of... More

What an awesome surprise! As a tour operator, I found this lodge via the internet and took a chance, and what a lovely surprise! Musa was friendly and welcomed us with a cool drink and biscuits, then showed us to our rooms- and what beautiful rooms they were! Comfortable and vibrantly decorated with the local peoples talents. The rooms were... More

Not many people traveling in southern Africa consider Venda in the northern Limpopo Province a worthy touristic or project partnership visit. For years visitors to the South African Development Community have seen this more isolated, beautiful mountainous area of northern South Africa as a shortcut to Kruger National Park or to/from Pretoria and Johannesburg en route to the wonders of...

We stayed at the Madi e Thava Guesthouse for two nights at the end of October. We stayed in their Fundudzi Suite. This very large suite was clean, beautiful decorated, and quiet. The suite offered a very large living room, a semi separate bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and a large covered veranda. The whole complex had a very nice... More

This hotel has a wonderful mix of commerciality and social conscience driving it. The Dutch owners Aart and Marcelle have taken an old farm and the surrounding villages and peoples and given them a new lease on life... The resulting charm of hospitality and crafts to be admired and purchased is irresistible. The singing chef belting out an opera aria... More

This lodge is very nice, beautiful surrounded by mountains, very nice rooms and appartments. You can do some walks from the lodge or do some other nice activities. The breakfast and diner is very good! If you have any doubts, don't! It is really worth the money

We did not stay at the lodge but emailed to ask if they could provide lunch for us as we were driving up to Kruger Park. They kindly agreed and we were so delighted they did, as our few hours there were one of the highlights of our week. The food provided was excellent, and we had time to explore... More

Nearly every year we visit from Lesotho friends in Zimbabwe. No doubt we stay in Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge. Comfortable, beautiful setting, excellent food and first class service. Such treat makes crossing the border at Beitbridge next day doable!
