Relax, slow down, eat well and share experiences

Farmhouse, Meals and Lounge

Whether you enjoy, wholesome, home cooked meals or like to mingle with other local and international guests, Madi a Thavha’s cozy lounge or cool veranda, is the place to do just that.

Unwind on the veranda or around the fireplace

Our focus on cultural experiences and sustainable development in rural Limpopo tend to attract wonderful and interesting guests with many fascinating discussions taking place around the pool or fire place at the lodge. The farmhouse has Wi-Fi to stay in contact with your loved ones.

Wholesome, home cooked meals in our restaurant

We serve breakfast and dinner on the farmhouse’s veranda or in the dining room-lounge. During winter we light traditional Venda “fire-pots” on the veranda and in summer we let the doors wide open to enjoy the cool breeze, hear the sounds of nocturnal birds and animals and get a glimpse of the Southern Cross in our clear, open African skies.

Guests frequently get hooked at the breakfast nook of our open plan kitchen-lounge-dining room and chat to the chefs while they prepare their meals. Our chefs in turn enjoy talking to our guests too. We have four chefs who love to cook and try new recipes, they are Beauty Ralebona,  Lufuno Ramapundu, Percy Ngwenya, our singing chef and Shoni Netshisaulu.

Sometimes our lodge administrator Ezra, also a Venda woman, surprise guests with wearing her traditional Venda minwenda-dress and then demonstrate one of the many traditional dances of the VhaVenda people.

Scrumptious dinner, breakfast, lunches and picnics

We offer a three course dinner as a set menu in the evenings. There is normally a fair amount of fusion between Dutch and African dishes and ingredients.  Fresh vegetables and fruit from the region and a salad are always included. Breakfast is a varied buffet of yogurts, fruits, cereals, baked muesli, home baked bread and muffins, cheese and various egg dishes. Lunches and picnics can easily be arranged on request. We cater for most special dietary requirements on prior arrangement.
