About 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, TVs with full DStv access, fully equipped kitchens and private barbecue areas.

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 birdwatching.

Hi Veronica,

Thanks for a lovely weekend at Thaba Thipa.  We enjoyed it a lot.  The view on the mountain is amazing and we've also enjoyed climbing to the top. 

My son started crying when we left because he wanted to stay longer and said that he'll really miss the place - thought it was our new home . . . :)

Did not enjoy our stay at Thaba Thipa, The rooms are fine but someone tried to break into our cottage whilst we were sleeping which made us not to be relaxed throughout our stay there and the load shedding for more than 12 hours did not also help, therefore we left before the end of our holiday.


Establishments Response:

We are sorry for the unfortunate incident which made Thabea not to enjoy their stay at Thaba Thipa.

I had a lovely weekend with my family , the chalet was clean and the place is child friendly, it's a home away from home and the buzz of the city.
