We recently stayed at this lodge and were utterly blown away! Len greeted us on arrival and from that moment until checking out the next day we were spoiled beyond belief. We were two friends who had lucked out as the lodge was quiet that evening. The rooms are beautiful, each with a view of those amazing Swartberg mountains. Len...

At the end of the season, again I had the pleasure of staying at Thabile Lodge. The lodge is centrally situated to comfortably visit all the attractions the area has to offer - yet away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The very gracious host Len makes one feel extremely welcome, whilst Hennie the chef spoils you with...

Very nice place to stay. Went on the recommendation of a friend on the return journey from the Garden Route to Cape Town, and was very pleased. I was only there for one night, but if you really wanted to decompress and stay for longer it would be a great place. The setting is beautiful, and the dinner and breakfast...
