Thulamela advertises as a B&B but is actually a bit more. The chalets are private and each with a lovely deck boasting a private spa bath on for 2 persons. Private braai area should one wish to light a fire and everything you need in the kitchen to make your stay comfortable. The service of the staff was very friendly... More

My husband and I stayed at Thulamela for two nights for our "mini honeymoon" as we couldn't go away for long. Beautiful and very comfortable rooms!!! Service was splendid and staff were so friendly and helpful! Would love to go back!

We stayed at Thulamela for 3 nights. The rooms were very comfortable with several amenities. Great breakfast every morning at the room. They wrap it with a lot of plastic, which is not very environmentally friendly but the food is very good. The outside jacuzzi is a big plus. Something I did not like is that there is no view...

My now husband and I got engaged at Thulamela in August 2014. This peaceful, romantic hideaway is perfect for the couple looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Penny, the owner was an absolute gem when it came to arranging everything for the engagement. The breakfasts were delicious and the accommodation was superb! We will... More

Just outside Hazyview (with pretty views of it), this is the perfect place to stay at and explore from. It is private and peaceful backed by great service. Scrumptious breakfasts are delivered to your door at the time you choose, and you have the option of "braai goodies" in the evenings when you don't feel like going to eat out.

Thulamela is a very restful and idyllic bed and breakfast venue in Hazyview. Penny and her staff are attentive but unobtrusive. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable with a jucuzzi on the deck to add to the relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts are scrumptious and very filling they are delivered to your cabin at the time you request each morning... More

Our own forest chalet, quiet, peaceful but with all the mod cons I needed - plus our own ho ttub on the stoep overlooking the woodland. Breakfast delivered to the patio each morning in a basket, wrapped up with celophane; something different each day, a delicacy and delicious. All this and on the door step to Kruger National park and... More

Charming in every way. Penny was so very friendly & professional & provided a delightful braai pack & scrumptious healthy breakfast. The clean, well equipped log cabin with private Jacuzzi, set amongst the trees is so romantic, private and relaxing. Sorry we only booked one night!

From the start, Penny at Thulamela has been incredibly kind and accommodating , despite our numerous reschedules and back and forth communications and she ensured that we had a special and fantastic 3 days there. Our chalet was spotless and well stocked with beautiful little touches for that extra charm, not to mention the jacuzzi we practically lived in on... More
