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.

    This place is more like a plot very disappointing. Couch and chair has big dents in them covered with throws to hide them.. Bed makes a noise. Microwave's paint is all off inside. Stove is a thing on top of counter. Toaster looks 100 years old. TV is very old and one has to stand up to change channels as the decoder is in top of the TV. Towels have frayed edges. Both pools are cold grass is brown no shade as shown in the photo of the place. Quite frankly pools at home are nicer than there. The pictures are taken very cleverly not what this place is at all. Once you walked up a small mountain that's it , nothing to see. We saw Kudu like ants at the very top after a walk. Saw 4 Bluewilderbeest and 4 Impala at the small drinking pool not far from the house nothing to get excited about. Ridiculous price and no 10 perc deduction for pensioners. Not worth it all all very disappointing. We left after one night but was given our deposit back minus one nights stay which we feel is not fair as ThabaThipa is not what is advertised. Sorry we have to say this but it is true. <br/> <br/>Establishments response: <br/> <br/>Thank you for your feedback. We at Thaba Thipa strives to deliver excellent customer service and see each point raised in a serious light. We are sure that if any of the points were raised with us during your stay, we would have been able to resolve them to your satisfaction. <br/> <br/>Please remember that we are currently in winter which is our dry season. With South Africa facing serious drought concerns we made the decision not to water excessively, unfortunately resulting in brown grass. <br/> <br/>The game on the farm are not tame and we cannot guarantee what will be seen by guests during their stay. <br/> <br/>Even though we have a strict refund policy, all monies except the night stayed was refunded. We believe that we will be able to exceed your expectations if you would like to visit us again. <br/>
