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. 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.

Over 100 bird species have been recorded on the farm, presenting a wonderful opportunity for birdwatching.

Safari: Thaba Thipa is located on a 22-hectare farm with eland, impala, duiker, klipspringer and bush buck.

Very Friendly.Security concern with the Main door that didnt lock.Great value in having full bouquet of DSTV channels, highly annoying that TV is positioned so high up the wall, resulting in neck cramps.
