The golden thread of Limpopo's heritage

with local vibe, culture and art woven into the entire Madi a Thavha mountain lodge
Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge

Cultural Heritage centre

Madi a Thavha Mountain lodge focus on art and culture. Apart from our own Dancing Fish gallery and Textile & Design studio we also source, promote and sell local Limpopo Craft and Art that engage with the rich 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 is pretty much a live-in gallery. It embraces all the art and craft displayed in the rooms, lounge, around the pool and gardens and also include our top-notch Cultural Heritage centre where the stories and development of art and craft of the region is told in colourful panels. Madi a Thavha was privileged to get the two seasoned and creative anthropologists, Petra Terblanche and Harold Kolkman to curate the centre and its valuable resources.  Our Textile & Design studio at the lodge and the library and Resource room are all embraced in the Dancing Fish Gallery’s dance.

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%."
