We (three children 13, 10, and 7, my wife and me) stayed at the Thakadu three nights, arriving in the early afternoon of April 24. In the same afternoon of our arrival we went in the first safari and met a pack of 14 macagnani (wild dogs, Lycaon pictus) and the driver of our vehicle could follow them for 30 min. Soon after leaving the macagnanis, we met Rhinos, and Elephants, and impalas, and Kudus! This was the welcome experience! In the days that followed we went out in safaris two times per day (from about 6 a.m. to about 9:30 a.m., and from about 4 p.m. to about 7 p.m.) and the level of surprise and beauty was always far beyond my expectations. On the day of our departure (flight departure at 11 a.m.) we could go for a last safari thanks to the organization of Wayne, the Lodge Manager, and to the experience of Maans Booysen (our guide and driver, a professional and a very kind man).
Under all aspects, I recommend this place to all those who like to travel with children and families who love the wild but like to stay in comfortable and protected places.
I would like to thank Wayne, Maans, and the entire staff of Thakadu River Camp for their hospitality and for the superb experience that they allowed us to live in Madikwe.
