It was the best choice we could have made! It was tranquil and quiet. All staff were friendly and helpful when asked questions. Close to nearby nature reserve we spent the days looking at animals and being relaxed. We didn't want to leave, we wanted to stay there forever.

Seabelo, Upon booking you were given detailed directions (written) and asked to follow these rather than rely on GPS units. When we spoke on the phone you confirmed that you had these on your laptop and would use them to get to us after your GPS sent you astray. The next morning, after it was brought to my attention that...

I visited Thaba Manzi with family and friends. It was not a good experience, due to the fact that the braaier we had at our bungalow, was in shambles. The bedding in the lounge, was also not clean, and the bedding in the main bedroom lacked a top sheet. Fortunately, I brought my own pillows ...To get back to the...

Feedback. We did speak with you and agreed that some of the matters you raised were ultimately non-issues and that you would in future raise any issues during rather than after your stay. Thank you for calling me back and the good chat.

The management went out of their way to assist our request for accommodation. The accommodation is old style and we enjoyed it but the bedding for the cold month of July was insufficient and you need to take your own bedding. Besides that it was most enjoyable to to watch the farm animals from the comfort of your own patio.

Lovely, tranquil place with beautiful farm animals and fresh air. Nice baths and lovely patios for braaing and looking at farm animals at close range. Kitchen well equipped and daily cleaning service came as a huge and free surprise. Definitely recommended to those in need of getting out of the city.

We've stayed in every lodge in the surrounds of this, but here we received personalized help, individual service and a great deal of kindness and tolerance regarding my children. Many thanks to both the housekeeper and the owner, for the help offered and the private tour of the farm.

Regrettably we had a bad experience. In less than 24 hours of arriving we had no electricity and no water. There was no manager/owner present to discuss the matter with. There is no generator as backup. We left after the first night and management was not interested in refunding us

Greetings, As was explained to you by our staff the power issues and thus pressure pump issue were not of our making. For that one must blame Eskom. Our staff offered to call me (I live on the ranch) but you declined and left. Naturally we are sorry you had your breakaway affected by the power outage but other guests...
