We stayed in two tents here, and I have to say AC in a tent was a new one for me, but greatly appreciated during the heat of summer. Our drive was Satiss, and he's an absolute gem. Game here is crazy plentiful. Before I lost count, we had 15 rhino sightings (including one black), 5 wild dogs sighted, 5 lions (2 males), and far too many elephants to count, including one here one of 22. Food was splendid and huge portions. You must go to the deck area at the end opposite the tents to see what is playing in the water. An elephant entertained us and seemed to take as much joy frolicking in the water as we enjoyed his antics. Staff here was top-notch. I have no complaints whatsoever!

What a relaxing bush escape served by Modi and the team. They went out of their way to accommodate us with our baby and we really felt pampered. The rooms were clean with lovely river views. Waking up to the birds singing early morning was just magical. The game drives were exciting with the rangers making every attempt to find the best of the bush. Lovely pool for cooling down in the heat of the day and excellent boma dinner to finish our stay. Hope to be back soon.

We had an absolutely magical time at Thakadu River Camp and strongly recommend staying here to anyone who wants an incredible bush experience. Beautiful, clean, luxurious! The only regret is not staying a longer.
