Fresh air and fun for children and adults

Lodge activities, hiking and bicycles

Various hiking routes on the farm, lodge bicycles and fun and creative activities can keep you busy for days at the lodge.

Hiking and Cycling

For our energetic guests we have various hiking routes at the lodge of which a one-and-a–half-hour circular route via the enormous Baobab on the mountain is the most popular. We also have 7 bicycles and 2 children’s bicycles and offer guided cycling tours visiting villages like Tshikota and Tshiozwi in the Western Soutpansberg mountains.  Exciting hiking and cycling opportunities in the wider Soutpansberg-area can be arranged on request. The local Mountain cycling club, has marked five easy to moderate routes for beginners and moderate riders in the mountain above Makhado/Louis Trichardt.

Fun activities for children and adults

Madi a Thavha provide fun activities for adults and their children either in the comfort of the lodge or on tour in rural villages. This can include making jewelry of handmade, recycled, glass beads, creating and decorating traditional clay pots or to make music with the artists at their home-studios. Children can test their physical skills on a gum-pole playground at the lodge or figure out our activity boxes’ imaginative content at the resource centre. A babysitter can be arranged when parents would like to enjoy dinner by themselves (we then serve the meal for the children in the family’s suite). Toys and games are always at hand.  Creative children can also join the Madi a Thavha Design team to make crafty items in the Textile & Design Studio at the lodge.
