Thaba Khaya Lodge is a 4 star Lodge situated in a malaria-free area and forms part of Sable Ranch, a Private Game Reserve and proclaimed
Natural Heritage site.
Thaba Khaya means “house on a rock”, which is an accurate description as the lodge sits on top of a large outcrop of granite.The elevated bar and pool deck not only offer breath-taking views of the natural surroundings but also overlook the watering hole, where animals often come to drink.
With an abundance of game spread out over 4500 hectares and a symphony of migratory birds, we offer an unforgettable birding and photographic safari experience, where highly qualified field guides will educate you on the natural surroundings and wildlife.
Sable Ranch is supported by the proactive breeding of rare Sable and Roan Antelope. Our reserve is one of the largest breeding groups of Zambian, Malawian and Zimbabwean Sable, as well as Roan antelopes. There is no commercial hunting on Sable Ranch and we encourage you to get involved in our conservation efforts to help protect the rich heritage and wildlife that our beautiful country has to offer. All revenue derived from the Lodge and Sable Ranch’s animal breeding programme is re-invested for use in our on-going conservation projects, as well as the day-to-day running of the ranch.
