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

Although we stay quite close by (within 10km's), the hotel feels like it's in the middle of the bush and far from urban living. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary... accommodation was excellent, the couple's body massage was thoroughly enjoyed at the Sizanani spa on-site and breakfast had a lot of variety. The trip ended with the Eco Drive which... More

I recommended the venue to our management when I saw that it was Tripadvisor's 18th best hotel in South Africa. After experiencing it for myself I cannot understand why it... More

Staying at Thaba is always a wonderful experience. We stop in for a few tranquil days every year when we visit South Africa. Its close to the airport and several places of interest, but most of all its peaceful. Its a great location to start any visit to South Africa and recover from jet lag before continuing on your journey.
