Luxury at a reasonable rate combined with great animal sightings makes it a super place to be. The lodge has semi tame resident klipspringer, nyala and sable within its fenced off area making for easy photography of these rare species. Food is excellent as are the hosts. The rim rockpool is a great place to cool off inbetween game drives.... More

The place is absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The chef and team make you feel so at home. 10/10 for food, hospitality, rooms, overall stay! Thaba Khaya means house on a rock which is accurate as the lodge sits on top of granite. With 4000 hectares of birds and game it is a proclaimed Natural heritage site. The ranch has rare... More

Spent this weekend and enjoyed every minute. The staff are amazing and nothing was to much trouble. They really go the extra mile to make sure your needs are catered for. Loved the game drives, loved the room and loved the food. Can't wait to go back. I would recommend Sable Ranch in a heartbeat.

We stayed at Thaba Khaya Lodge because try as we might we just could not see (photograph) Sable or Roan antelopes in the wild. Only about an hour out of Pretoria, this is an absolute gem. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts and staff, and despite us having foul weather for the first 24 hours they did their... More

Thaba Khaya Lodge is not only a beautiful lodge with the warmest hospitality, but also located on Sable Ranch which is known for its conservation efforts. The game drives in the open vehicles are relaxed and well worth doing. We loved our stay and can openly recommend Thaba Khaya Lodge for people who want to get away from the crowds,... More

As our group of friends arrived at the airport, we were picked up by our transportation pre-arranged by our hosts from the Sable Ranch. Just a little over an hour from Johannesburg in the North West Province. This beautiful Lodge is part of Sable Ranch, a Private Game Reserve and proclaimed Natural Heritage site which is situated in a malaria... More

We spent a superb relaxing weekend at this lovely lodge which is so convenient for Gautengers, being only just over an hour's drive from Jo'burg. You really feel 'away from the city' and the fact that it looks after so few people at a time, it is a very special experience. Personal attention without being intrusive. Thanks so much to... More

We spent 6 days at this beautiful lodge, which is less than a 2 hr drive from Jo'burg. It is of particular appeal as it only accommodates a small number of people. Our accommodation was spacious and luxurious, the food outstanding and drinks by the pool, all inclusive, was fabulous in the late afternoon. Jenn & Warren, our hosts, were... More
