Lounge & Fire Place

Especially warm and cosy in the winter months, guests often enjoy relaxing with a good book or a glass of wine in the lounge which boasts a gorgeous fire place that is constantly burning throughout the daytime and evenings.

The Waterhole Pub

It’s charming and intimate, with a lovely selection of wines and drinks offering the best view in the North West that overlooks our famous waterhole and is lit up at night to give guests a chance to spot both daytime and nocturnal visitors.

Swimming Pool and Upper Lapa

The sparkling cool swimming pool is picturesquely set in the rock beside the upper thatched lapa and close enough to the lodge to ensure that every whim is responded to by the attentive and friendly team of Thaba Khaya Lodge.

Bird Watching and Viewing Deck

The deck area includes an excellent view of the lodge waterhole where game of all descriptions, as well as birds and little creatures are likely to drop by, particularly in the early hours of the morning or in the evening, but also throughout the languid daytime hours. This is a place to sit and savour the privilege of witnessing wildlife in its natural habitat. With more than 270 bird species that have been identified on Sable Ranch, this conservancy offers endless delightful viewings as they dance and flap, soar and glide, eat and drink, and sing and call, filling the trees and the skies with life and beauty.

Strolling the gardens

(Secure garden facilities fenced from the main reserve). Thaba Khaya Lodge is set within four hectares of a secure and fenced area where guests can stroll to simply take in the fresh air or catch a glimpse of the resident nyala, bushbuck, klipspringer, or other smaller creatures that have made their home in this bushveld oasis.


We invite you to come on an African sensory journey that will leave you calm & relaxed. A variety of spa treatments are available on site as the perfect alternative or addition to the exciting game drives.

Fire Pit Boma & Main Lapa

Coming soon to Thaba Khaya Lodge is our new lapa and entertainment area which will boast a magnificent fire pit and bar for guests to enjoy the African night sky in all her glory. This lapa will also be used for Weddings, Corporate Getaways, Functions and Special Occasions to throw fantastic events.
