Thaba Thipa


Thaba Thipa, which means "Mountain of the Knife", is situated on a 22-hectare farm in the heart of the bushveld, just 10 minutes north from Bela-Bela on the road to Modimolle. The name Thaba or "mountain" originates from the mountain the farm is situated on. Hiking will result in beautiful scenery and offers an exquisite view of the surroundings.

Accommodation consists of a log house with beautiful views and three chalets set in a tranquil surrounding. All the units have private bathrooms, a TV with full DStv access, fully equipped kitchens and private barbecue areas. For guests' pleasure, there is also a heated swimming pool and a jungle gym for the kids.

The emphasis at Thaba Thipa is on tranquility and relaxation; cool off in our refreshing pool after conquering the bush trails, or watch the sunset while looking at the eland coming down from the mountain while you prepare a fire for the evening barbecue. The farm offers many game species, including eland, impala, duiker, klipspringer and bush buck, to name a few. In addition, over 100 bird species have been recorded on the farm, presenting a wonderful opportunity for bird watching.

  • Thaba Thipa "almost" spring break
    21 August 2017

    Mountain of the Knives still rocks... literally! Back again for the 3rd time in 18 months, for quiet, solitude and relaxation. We appreciate the easy access, simplicity and easy access to explore the farm. Good to be able to walk a very rocky road a few times a day, surprising the impala, enjoying the bushveld scenery and air, and coming face to face with the new wildebeest calves... beautiful!!! Then always good to have the option of an exhilarating cold swim or a more extended wallow in their heated pool... clean and well maintained. Unit had a few minor niggles, but nothing to detract from a wonderful few days. Interestingly, found some intriguing pebbles embedded in sedimentary rock at the highest part on the koppie on the farm. Evidence of a global flood as per the Genesis account in the Bible...??? Thaba Thipa remains our daughters favourite, and will be visited and explored again... hopefully after some summer rains when the greenery is back!
