When we arrived on a hot afternoon, our host Len was waiting for us in the pool as he was trying to cool down and immediately offered us a cool beer. He's a very charming and welcoming host and immediately made us feel at home. The main house if full of funny animals including the fattest cat I've ever seen.... More

What a great find..... My wife and I recently stayed at Thabile Lodge for one night. The rooms in the cottage were spotless and well appointed. Views of the mountains/hills at sunset are gorgeous. You must have the evening meal here. You will not be disappointed. Although breakfast is included, we regrettably left the following morning at 4:45 to see... More

Traveling trough South Africa, we found Thabile Lodge by coïnsidence. Our host, Len is the kind of man who has the great ability to let you feel welcome and make yourself at home ! We planned to stay 2 nights, but soon after arriving, we decided to book an extra night. Huge clean rooms, nice beds, hot water power shower,... More

We spent 2 nights in the lodge and we loved every minute of it. You are welcomed by Len (who owns the place), Ben and Annabelle (two adorable Bassett hounds), Garfield (the biggest cat you have ever seen), a couple of other dogs ..... it feels like a private house. The accommodation is spacious and clean, the power shower is... More

This is a very nice well kept guest house. We even had dinner there most of the nights and it was wonderful. The host Len is a wonderful person and knows how to get the guests to interact and get to know each other. Really like my stay there.

I stayed at Thabile Lodge in Nov 2011 for two days, the lodge is a strong recommendation - very personal, familiar atmosphere, good food (esp ostrich steak is a 'must'). Accomodations are in typical african style, but leave nothing to be desired. Won't be my last visit in Nov 2011.

You know that when the first words you are greeted by are "Welcome, come along right now for a cold drink on the porch", you are in a good place. It's even better when you step into the idyllic views from porch, have said drink thrust into the hand, and have the friendliest manager in the world recount the colourful... More
