“Great Choice for Families”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

We have kids who are too young to sleep in a separate hotel room and too old to share one with us. We are always on the lookout for self catering 2 bedroom accommodations. Thaba Tsweni was perfect option for us while we explored this area! The owners went out of there way to make us feel at home, even surprising our son with a birthday cake.

We stayed at Thaba Tsweni in 2 units and were very pleased with all the facilities provided. Everything was spotless and everything we needed was available. The host was most helpful and very welcoming when we arrived.
Our overseas visitors left a pair of glasses in the room and the lodge was very helpful in sending them on to us without delay.

The excellent staff at Thaba Tsweni provided us with an excellent itinerary for the Blyde River Canyon that included secluded hiking trails and outstanding viewpoints. I would very highly recommend this friendly lodge.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are outstanding.

It's been said in other reviews but we have to say it again, this place is the best. Wonderful location, good view, spotless rooms with everything we could wish for. The host was interesting and generous with his time and information. Our only negative comment is that we could only be there one night as we had already arranged to fly out of the area the next day. We hope someday to go back to Thaba Tsweni for a week or two. There is much to see and do in the area and the place itself is so relaxing and beautiful. Thanks Wendell!

We stayed in this lodge for 3 nights and were very happy with it's location - very close to the canyon, Sabi, Hazyview, etc. Bed is rather comfortable but mind the noise from passing trucks early in the morning. Although it is a self-service appartment you can order breakfast or dinner from the host if you are not in the mood for cooking yourself. We would deffinately come back to stay there again.

We were traveling towards Kruger National Park and were looking for a place to spend the night but actually had no idea on where to stop. That's the reason why why ask for advice at the local tourist office in Graskop and we were indicated this Lodge. What a find! We couldn't have asked for a better place: at an extremely reasonable price, we were given not a room but an entire house with a fully equipped kitchenette, a living room with sofa, TV and a wood stove, a bedroom and a bathroom. We also had a private veranda with a table and braai facilities, where we prepared our dinner! For breakfast, we had pancakes in an extremely cute café in Graskop, then we spend the whole day visiting the local attractions, all recommended by the Lodge's host (Berlin falls, Blyde River Canyon, the Three Rondavels). A really genuine place, recommended to everyone!

Our 2 families (Israel, South Africa) of 7 stayed 4 nights at Thaba Tsweni in 2 chalets. Everything stated on the web site is correct: great location, comfortable lodgings, excellent hospitality. Wendel is a wonderful guide. We took 2 one day Safaris with him. One day to Kruger Park in a closed vehicle and one day to a private reserve in an open jeep. Both days were great. Wendel's knowledge of the whole area is very extensive and he communicated information to us in an interesting way, bringing to our attention a great deal of animal, plant and tree life that we would never have even noticed by ourselves. It did help that we saw a lot of game, including all of the big 5 over the two days. We even saw the beginnings of a rumble between some male lions! We all recommend Thaba Tsweni for your stay in the Blyde River Canyon and Kruger Park areas.
