Venda Textiles – Limpopo – South Africa

Madi a Thavha, meaning 'water from the mountains', is set in a beautiful and quiet valley of the Soutpansberg mountains, Limpopo, only 10km drive from the centre of Louis Trichardt (Makhado). Here you will find a permanent exhibition of the art and craft work of the Venda and Tsonga artists, and the textile workshop of Madi a Thavha Design. The lodge is an excellent base to spend a few days exploring the Venda and Tsonga culture by visiting the artists and crafters in the villages around Elim and Mutale and to discover unspoiled nature and culture of the people of the Soutpansberg and Limpopo Valley.
