After a nasty experience with a lodge close by (ZWARTBERG VIEW run by Mr Jann Bader - PLEASE see my review of his establishment on tripadvisor) , we were forced to find alternative accommodation at short notice. Fortunately Len was able to accommodate us, and wow, what a great experience. He is the comsumate host and tended to our every...

Home far away from home, sitting on the porch and looking over Africa’s beautiful mountain country side, while next to us bright yellow and orange little birds were picking food under a banana tree, we were enjoying Len’s extraordinary hospitality. He and his team are reading your thoughts of what it takes to make a perfect vacation. Starting with the...

LEN met us on arrival and with his usual Gastfreundlichkeit brought drinks out to the vehicle. It was a welcome stay in the minimalist yet very well designed chalets ! The evening meal prepared by Hennie was excellent. I had Strauss Pâté as a starter followed by a succulent piece of ostrich fillet and vegetables. Drinks were reasonably priced and...

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Thabile Lodge in October 2012. We arrived in a deluge of rain which we were told was not a usual occurance in the semi-desert area. Even in the rain we were welcomed by Len and his staff with a hot cup of tea and a welcome smile. Our room was warm,...

A homely stay not to be beaten easily. The owner, Len (chief, cook and bottle washer) is the most gifted host to be found anywhere. He just knows how people love to be attended to, without being obtrusive. Located against the Red Hills of the Swatrberg Mountains, the lodge chalets offer rooms with a view to dream of. Very spacious...

Incredible good food, so nice attention from Len I can only warmly recommend this destination. I've rarely seen so much dedication about the wellness of the guest. I had special requests doing a MTB race in the area and all of them have been fulfilled by Len ( the boss!). Room is very comfortable. Highly recommended destination.
