May Thabametsi weave its magic on your soul so that your footsteps automatically lead you back..

This tranquil, rustic self-catering getaway is situated on a 132Ha farm, nestled between two koppies and overlooking the valley to the Witwatersrand Mountains. A venue offering a quiet break-away and therefore not catering for parties, music or undue noise.

The malaria-free location assures guests of beautiful sunsets and great hospitality. The diverse ecosystem encourages a wide range of birdlife, particularly on the dam and smaller animals like bushbuck, warthogs, scrub hares, mongoose, monkeys and squirrels have also made Thabametsi their home.

Thabamesti Farm offers pet friendly, family orientated accommodation and children are welcome and catered for. This is a true farm stay experience with horses grazing in the paddocks, Munchkin the goat, as well as ducks, chickens and a turkey for the children to feed and keep an eye out for the two tortoises.
All units are comfortably furnished in a rustic theme. Indoor fireplaces and heaters cater for cosy winter nights whilst summer evenings are braai-time in the lovely bomas under the stars. Fully equipped units. There is also free under cover parking.

ACTIVITIES includes swimming in the solar heated pool, various games in the entertainment area with DSTV. Surprise games set up for kids, a jungle gym, trampoline and obstacle course. The kids will discover a fantasy garden and the adults a thought provoking labyrinth. Nature walks, bird watching, kids bicycle track, gym, cycling for adults. Canoeing on the dam, donkey and tractor cart rides are included in the booking. PONY RIDES for kids 4-11 years old. Horse-outrides on the farm on request.

Our Coffee and Craft shop offers local gifts and homemade products as well as some basic necessities while you can enjoy milkshakes, various coffees and more from the coffee shop.

Guest Comments

So sorry we only booked 4 nights, could have done with another week or so


We had a wonderful time my kids really enjoyed the facilities. It was a nice break away from the city, the place exceeded my expectations. I loved everything about it especially the labyrinth if you need time to self reflect I would highly recommend Thabametsi.

We thoroughly enjoyed the taste of "real" farm life at Thabametsi! Our Owl Cottage had everything we needed and was also quite private. We found it very relaxing and enjoyed our interactions with nature - bush walks, canoeing, picnics, animals etc. Definitely what we needed to get away from the city! Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to family/friends.

We really enjoyed our stay and they made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. I have to thank Aunt Judy and her staff for every thing they did for us and our kids we all had a fantastic time. We will certainly be back again.

We enjoyed our stay at Thabametsi very much. It was very relaxing and food for the soul. We particularly enjoyed the farm atmosphere and the staff were very helpful.
