Thaba Khaya Lodge lives up to its promises of the thrill of game viewing for those who want it, pampering if they prefer, rest and relaxation for over-stressed executives, romance and intimacy for lovers, schedule-free languid days for those who need it and much more. Thaba Khaya Lodge is a lovely place to be, no matter what your needs.
The elegant homestead-styled game lodge set on top of a granite outcrop in the heart of the North West bushveld lies within the 4 500 hectare Sable Ranch wildlife sanctuary and offers an experience to be treasured by all its guests.
Conveniently located in a malaria-free zone, it is one and a half hours’ drive from Johannesburg and slightly less from Pretoria, 30km to the north of the town of Brits.
The four-star lodge offers exceptionally comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 16 guests, in standard rooms leading out into the fever tree dotted gardens, or luxury suites with private balconies overlooking the pristine bushveld and the Thaba Khaya Lodge waterhole.
Lodge rates include all meals prepared by a chef extraordinaire, teas and coffees, use of the lodge facilities, game drives with a qualified and certified game ranger and excellent personal service by an attentive and friendly lodge team. Added to the lodge’s offering are the delightful sounds and sights of the African bushveld, exciting game drives in search of wildlife from the smallest reptile to the large and grand buffalo, prolific birdlife for watching and enjoying, fragrant aromas in the air, and a glitteringly beautiful star-filled night sky.
It is a place that people come back to, again and again. Thaba Khaya Lodge is an intimate wedding venue where couples choose to return for their birthdays and anniversaries, mini seminars or exclusive corporate breakaways. Bird-watchers make regular pilgrimages to the lodge to add to their checklists and photographers return for a chance at the perfect animal or bird shot from our rustic Mapula Bird Hide, but more often, our guests are couples, families or friends who have found a special place where they can truly escape the demands of city life.
No children under 10 years are allowed. Security is paramount and Thaba Khaya Lodge is surrounded by game fencing and a controlled entrance within the large Sable Ranch Private Game Reserve. Guests are free to stroll around the four hectare lodge grounds, and explore beyond the fence on a game viewing vehicle with a qualified and certified game ranger.
