Thabile lodge- A little paradise in Klien Karoo, where you can experience the dazzling starry night sky, sipping on a nice glass of Karoo wine. The mesmerizing view of Swartberg mountains from anywhere you stand on the property, including the rooms and the serenity where you can just hear birds chirping is worth the little extra mile you drive to...

In the middle of nowhere there is a paradise. Whoever wants to give his head and heart a short break of the routine is exactly right here. As soon as you found your way through the entrance and parked your car under the trees you can leave everything where it is. The most important thing is now the warm welcome... More

This is not chic Cape Town, but it is a super location from which to bathe in the rugged seclusion of the Klein Karoo. Set some 20 minutes outside Oudtshoorn the Lodge offers that magic blend of comfortable living set in near wilderness. But there are spacious bungalows, very acceptable food and good wine. A bottle of "sundowners" against the... More

Thabile lodge offers an unforgettable experience. Accommodation is comfortable and clean with a unique rustic charm that suits the surroundings perfectly. The magnificent views of the Swartberg mountains are vast and evoke a sense of wonder and serenity. Glorious sunsets charge the evening skies and provide the backdrop for refreshments on the terrace or at the sparkling pool. Dinner is... More

This is our 2nd time that we stayed here. Normally, we would never stay at the same place again as we want to see and experience other places as well but when we decided to back to Oudtshoorn, Thabile Lodge would definitely be the place to stay!!

We stayed here for only one night but would have loved to stay much much longer. The place is a gem tucked away in the middle of nowhere and yet in easy reach of Oudtshoorn and De Rust. We were greeted by the owner and his pack of (very nice) dogs. Our room was nicely air conditioned and had a... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Len's Thabile lodge. Our family received a warm welcome, whilst the spacious, air-conditioned rooms were a welcome shelter from the Oudtshoorn summer heat. Len's warm personality and his lodge's home away from home atmosphere were a pleasant surprise. Dinner time is a experience, with fine wine and food, combined with interesting guests... More

We stayed for 2 nights early December. Lovely place. but what really makes it is Len the very entertaining owner and his wonderful staff. Food was great. Portions huge. Too much but we found that the case for most of the countryside. You get to meet interesting people. The property is well tended.

We stayed overnight on our way to Cape Town, and it was absolutely wonderful. The cottages are comfortable, clean and have all the extra luxuries. The meals are great, the service friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. The owner is very friendly and went out of his way to accommodate us with our 4-year old. Thank you, Len!
