Description

This is a 2000 acre game and cattle ranch nestled below and incorporating two and a half kilometres of the cliffs, kloofs and mountain forest of the Magaliesberg. Thaba Manzi is a venue where you can truly escape from the city life. Come and experience the wonder of multi-coloured indigenous nguni cattle and pedi sheep, grazing alongside haartebeest, eland, geemsbok, nyala, zebra, blesbok and graceful giraffes.

Enjoy an evening braai with the sounds of the bush and the calls of the jackals as background music. For the more active, we offer horse trails, hiking and climbing in the mountains, horse and cart rides, game viewing on numerous internal cycles and walking trails.

There are luxurious self-catering cottages accommodating from two to four people comfortably and handling a total of 12 people sharing. Each cottage is individually furnished and uniquely designed with Victorian slipper baths and double showers. They all have fully equipped kitchens, their own braai areas and a shared pool area.

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you.

          This place sucks, poor hygiene, rude and impersonal owners, no water or electricity. the place is badly run down

          29 December 2014

          This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed at. We never once saw the "host". The place was infested with flies. They didn't even have any flies repellent spray, or anything. The linen was dirty. The utensils hadn't been washed. There was continuous power outages and no back-up generator except at the main dwelling. We went out and bought our own fly traps. When we called and complained about the lack of water and electricity, we were sworn at by the host Ms Chantal de Villiers. She refused to refund us for the day that we didn't stay. This place is a total fraud. It definitely doesn't resemble the photos or "reviews" on any of the accommodation websites. This is a rundown fly infested dump. The chalet is totally open plan - the shower and bathroom is all open - which means you basically bathing is the open, where anyone can walk past and watch. The veranda pillars are tied together with wire. The "chalets" are situated next to the pig pens. The poor cows and horses sleep outside - there is no proper barn or sheds for them. They are left to fend for themselves. The cows are milked in the dirty run down dirty shack. The pool is cracked and leaking. It was dirty with algae on the side. Almost cut my foot on the broken tiles around the pool. The grass around the chalets and pool is full of thorns.

          07 April 2014

          While Thaba Manzi offers some lovely views over the mountains in a peaceful farm setting, we were very disappointed with the accommodation itself. Upon arriving, we struggled to find anyone to greet us and wandered around rather aimlessly until a farm worker showed us to our apartment. The flat itself was pleasant and clean, but the owners have done the bare minimum to make guests feel at home. A sign explains that guests get only one roll of (one ply) toilet paper, after which they must pay for more. There is no soap, sugar, tea or any other thoughtful amenity available. Even the cutlery and plates are kept to a bare minimum (with just 2 knives, 2 forks and 2 plates per couple). The linen is old and very scratchy. Thaba Manzi has a lot of potential, but the owners really need to reconsider their priorities. Either that, or lower their price enough to indicate the lack of quality that guests can expect.

          07 January 2014

          When you go to Thaba Manzi,just expect to feel as though you don't exist. You are not greeted by anyone and you need to phone the host so that one of the workers can open for you. This in itself was ok,but the fabled activities on the website (like hiking trails and horse rides) are impossible as nobody is around to give you any information. The unit itself was up to standard,despite the fridge not closing properly and the one bedside lamp not working. If you want to relax without interruption, it's ok, but if you went there with the hopes of hiking or horse riding (as is stated on their website) then don't even consider it. I enjoyed the peace, but I felt very neglected as a guest and the service was extremely unprofessional. Nonexistent, actually.

          19 December 2013

          Just came back from a 2 night stay at thaba manzi Ranch. We stayed at lorie room, loved the old beams and the door, it certainly gave character to the place. The owners were very welcoming and great to talk too. Chantal very patiently explained everything on the ranch to us. We took our own coal for braai, but were also provided wood for the first braai. And were also informed if needed more then it is available at the farm for a very good price. All in all the place was very peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of city. And simply loved waking up to the sounds of birds, insects, cows, sheep, horses etc etc. Would definitely go again!!!
