I live in Durban, Kwazulu Natal and did a roadtrip to the Cape in December 2012. After some time spent with friends in Knysna, I stopped over for a few nights at Thabile Lodge in Oudtshoorn. What a magical place! Len is the ultimate host, always ready with a joke and a smile not to mention a nice cold refreshment...

Hi there, We just had the most wonderful overnight stop at Thabile lodge and ended up staying two days. This is a rare Gem in the karoo with ice cold beer, swimming pool, crisp cool bed linen and seperate free standing rooms scattered between the thorn trees and open green grass lawns. Most beautiful sunset at the end of a...

We spent only one night, but I can write a book about Thabile Lodge. We arrived on an extremely hot day, and were welcomed by Len with a friendly smile and an ice cold drink. Our room was clean and spacious, and we had everything we needed - air-conditioning, tea/coffee, bottled water, etc. We had a swim in the pool...

What a special find, great room, great views, biking friendly and well priced. We love the Karoo and to find a host like Len on a venue like this was just amazing. Hennie knocked an amazing salad together on short notice and the breakfast was really good. We had a problem with the back tyre and the nearest one was...

We were doing a motorcycle trip through the eastern and northern Cape during December 2012. We were booked to stay at Zwartberg View Mountain lodge, but found the owner had issues with bikers and was less than welcoming. We moved on and found Thabile Lodge and after a day of riding in 40 degree heat it was like finding an...

Thanks so much Len for such an amazing stay! In spite of the soaring temperatures, our room was lovely and cool and the pool was a real winner. We found your food absolutely delicious with our steaks done to perfection. We especially enjoyed the company of your other guests and friends. Thanks for introducing us to the chilli Grappa! Hi...

This was our fourth visit and it won't be our last.. We always have a wonderful time made possible by the lovely host Len and great staff( really more friends than staff).

Len is a most amusing and friendly guy and the verandah is a perfect setting for a sundowner and an excellent dinner. The rooms are very attractive and the bathrooms too. Fantastic shower in particular. The view over the Zwartberg Hills is outstanding. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for a get-away-from-it-all moment or a stopping off point.

Len was a fantastic host along with the many animals and entertaining like minded guests, we had a great time at Thabile Lodge. The rooms are spacious, uncluttered yet comfortable, the food is fantastic, there is no need to book a restaurant as it cannot be beaten in town. Len is very informative and has great advice for visiting the...

We spent a very entertaining night at Thabile, where we were greeted by Len, who would prove to be a most encompassing and entertaining host! The main house with the patio, bar and pool facilities is beautiful. Whether you want to chill with a drink or in the pool, the mountains provided a very grand backdrop. After we had a...
