Madi a ThavhaDiscover the rich culture, history and nature of the Soutpansberg
Marcelle Bosch, owner of Madi a Thavha, was looking for website that would cover all activities of Madi a Thavha. Madi a Thavha offers nature & cultural experiences in the Northern part of Limpopo, South Africa. The site has to present the lodge, additional activities, but also the local artists and the art & craft they produce.
Marcelle wants the site to be rich of information about the area, local artists and the surrounding communities that are linked with Madi a Thavha. I regularly had meetings with Marcelle and Elthea (Content manager), visited the lodge, chatted with the staff and guests while I was there. See below some of the ideas we have implemented in the site.
Colourful Limpopo deluxeA rich experience of the stories, customs and raw beauty of the Soutpansberg and its peoples
Madi a Thavha mountain lodge is a 4-star, Fair Trade-certified lodge situated in a valley of the Soutpansberg. Founded by Marcelle Bosch and Aart van Soest, Madi a Thavha is well situated in the middle of the cultural and natural marvels of the north. They offer village tours to artists’ and crafters’ work places in the rural villages where you can experience the everyday rural buzz, meet traditional dancers, singers, musicians, story-tellers and traditional healers.
