Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge


We present Madi a Thavha Mountain lodge also as a destination. We really believe in our beautiful area with all the exciting and creative things to do, see and experience here, from mountain biking to cultural tours and workshops with our Venda and Tsonga and Northern Sotho artists and crafters.

This CraftArt page is a celebration of the context of rural hip Limpopo. Here we zoom in a bit  on the people of Northern Limpopo to give our guests a glimpse of the general vibe and environment while in the background we continue to visit old friends with new ideas, new friends with new styles and always return inspired and excited to tell you more, show you what we discovered this time… this is what make travellers want to return to Limpopo again and again. It is not always easy, it can sometimes be challenging, but it is always, absolutely worth it!

This South Africa is very interesting!

I’m French and it is the first time that I come to South Africa.. it is an amazing and beautiful place. You are very friendly. I love the colours you decorated the lodge!
