We were privileged enough to stay at this beautiful lodge on a recent trip to Oudtshoorn. The lodge is amazing on it’s own, but the staff really made the stay extra special! Len made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The view from the porch is really spectacular, and the 3... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this excellent lodge. Lenn and his friendly staff made you feel welcome from the beginning. The lodges are surrounded with a stunning view. The food they prepare here is splendid. When we go back to S.A. , we will come back to this cosy place. That's for sure! angelo & inge from Belgium

This was my second visit here, after coming last year. It is out of the way, but you relax the minute you get there. The welcome from Len is so warm and friendly, he feels like the friend you've had for years. Relaxing on the 'stoep' with a cold drink when the sun is blazing, and the view on the... More

We, a family with three children, spent a night here en route to the Great Karoo in July and found this a charming spot where we immediately felt relaxed. Upon arrival we were able to watched the Wimbledon tennis finals on a 'big' TV screen and then variously made our way off to the jacuzzi or simply to enjoy the... More

As I travel a lot in the course of my duties (I am a tour guide), I will only comment on places that I have been to on several occasions , and where I have always had consistent experiences. Located on tranquil farm surroundings, Thabile Lodge is the epitome of South African and Karoo hospitality. From the moment you arrive... More

Len and Kenny are the perfect hosts, and fabulous to talk to. The setting of the lodge is awesome, peaceful and beautiful. The food is of the highest quality and superbly presented. Our stay was so relaxed and comfortable, and we felt at home and as though we were family. Also, the attention to detail in and around the lodge,... More

We were made very welcome from the minute of arrival, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food and excellent position for sight seeing. Woderful views of the mountains. Especially enjoyed the candlelit suppers on the veranda and breakfast next to the enormous bird feeder. Look forward to visiting again soon.

A wonderful tranquil venue to escape the madness of the city and breathe fresh Karoo air. Between the caring host, Len, his excellent chef, Hennie, and the housekeeping ladies I could not have wished for a more relaxing venue for a break away. I can recommend Thabile Lodge to anyone who wants to escape the city. The drive through the... More
