This is one of the most beautiful place I have stayed in Johannesburg. It is a 15 minute drive from the airport but you arrive in a private nature reserve. Both the lodges as well as the rooms are fantastic, nicely decorated and a warm feeling...and the best part: the minibar with South African wine is included :-). You can... More

We stayed here for the last two nights of our 3 week trip to SA. Overall impression is that we paid more and got less at Thaba than many of the other places we stayed. Location is great - close to the city, but still natural and "wild". Staff at reception are extremely friendly and helpful, though even the smallest... More

The rooms were just too nice and spacious, with an amazing view of the Joburg South. We really had a super weekend. Malcolm ( the... More

What a superb venue for any function, especially a Matric Dance! The Staff is extremely helpful and the facilities are ideal for such an event, where the guests can be "contained" in a safe environment, to enjoy a wonderful party. We will be back!!!

The location is absolutely awesome, so close to JHB burg but it feels as if you are in the middle of the Bush. The View is spectacular. The Staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night and had a late arrival. From the gate staff to the person in the shuttle everyone was very welcoming. Accomodation was EXCELLENT! Complimentary breakfast was 5 Star and to international standards. Thank you all at Thaba

Stunning hotel and the food from the Kraal Kombuis was out of this world. Free mini bar and snacks were a very pleasant surprise! Loved that touch. Nice views and even with a wedding being held that same night it was very quiet. Loved my stay there and will highly recommend for some R&R
