Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge

Cultural Heritage centre

Madi a Thavha Mountain lodge focuses on art and culture. Apart from our own Dancing Fish gallery and Textile & Design studio we source, promote and sell local Limpopo Craft and Art in particular those that engage with the rich cultural heritage of Northern Limpopo Province in South Africa. We are pleased to be part of the unique and exciting rural-hip style developing here in the North.

Our Dancing Fish gallery embraces all the art and craft displayed in the rooms, lounge, around the pool and gardens – including our Cultural Heritage center where  the stories and development of the art and craft of the Soutpansberg & Limpopo valley is displayed in a colourful nutshell. Madi a Thavha was privileged to get two seasoned anthropologists, Petra Terblanche and Harold Kolkman to curate the centre and its valuable resources.  Our own Textile & Design studio and library books  are all jiving with the Dancing Fish Gallery!

Still thinking and talking of the excellent week we had!

"The friendliness and hospitality of the owner family and the staff are just grand. We can recommend this lodge a 100%."
