“Ladies weekend away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We have an annual weekend away with friends. This year we chose this lovely spot. There are 6 log cabins. Each has 2 bedrooms, 1 double bed and 2 single beds. The cabins are small but spacious. We've really loved it here. The game roams in and out of the area. Hiking trails are available. It's a wonderful place to get away to. I will definitely recommend to others.

From the word go Joanne went out of her way to accommodate our trip. The facilities are great as well as the service. Around the corner from Joburg and a great destination to just switch off.Thank you!

The service we receive from booking on line to checking out was fantastic, it makes you feel so much better about staying somewhere when it is easy and effortless to book to stay there.
The cabins were delightful and well maintained. We fell in love with the bath.

The view was breath-taking and the animals we wonderful.

Our best part of the trip was the hiking trail, it was a little challenging for myself as I am unfit but once you get to the top and see the spectacular view it is more than worthwhile doing the hike.

What a gorgeous little heaven right in the high mountains and the wild-life.

Joanne was an amazing host from start to end. Although we got lost getting there, we made the most of the road-trip and she talked us through the route till we arrived safely.

The charlet was beautiful and very clean. What an amazing time we had around the fire, the mountain climb in the early morning as well as site seeing on our way back. We made the most of the pool area swimming and had so much laughs.

The scenery was so breath-taking we took so much photos until we couldn't take anymore! My sister's 25th Birthday get-away was definately made spectacular.

Intaba Thulile is a definate must see! So many activities so little time. Planning on spending more time next time in the serenity of those mountains.

Superb location, much wildlife, animals and bird-life. Nice, but challenging hikes.. Very tastefully decorated and very functional acommodation.
Very friendly and knowledgeable host. Lovely venue for a day or 2 getaway from city life.

Stayed for 2 nights after busy 3 days in Johannesburg for Joy of Jazz festival. Lovely place to unwind and explore surrounding area. Cottage is well equipped and comfortable, and as others have said, Joanne is an excellent hostess. Only negative was that the lighting at night was not good enough for reading, so the addition of one or two reading lamps would be good. Saw giraffe and buck on our walk about the farm. Unfortunately we did not have time to take the trail to the top of the mountain. A good alternative is the cableway at Hartebeespoort dam (about 30km away), which offers a circular walk at the top of the mountain, with a 360 deg view of the surrounding area.

We had a really wonderful weekend away at Intaba Thulile. The cottage was cosy and comfortable and Joanne was a warm and very friendly hostess. There are some lovely walks in the surrounding area and we saw plenty of wildlife. We will definitely be back soon!
