Thulamela treats you to real break! A serene, private place to unwind and do nothing if you like! Penny and her staff were fantastic hosts, and the meals were a real treat! The cabins are well kitted out and very comfortable. The air-con a must, and the spa on the deck, a nice added bonus. Thank you, we will definitely... More

I bought vouchers on Daddy's Deals for 2 nights at Thulamela with my hubby, and wished we could've stayed longer! The owner, Penny, was not around when we arrived but we were greeted warmly by a very smiley Gertrude, and found that Penny had left us a lovely note to welcome us... When we got to meet her the following... More

We included the Panorama Route in our Kruger holiday and Thulamela was a great choice for accommodation. It came highly recommended on social media via an accommodation website and we were not disappointed. Central for doing the Route as well as a wonderful hideaway - secluded, private and luxurious. I enjoyed the detail - from the rose petals theme all... More

Have a very lovely braai. We ordered a goodie braai.... fantastic!! The breakfast, included, were also 10 STAR!! We felt so... More

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

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
