  • Facilities
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.

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.

27 Reviews on Thaba Thipa

The service was not as we expected. The braai area was only cleaned after the second day, so if we had wanted to braai on day 2, we would have had to clean the ash ourselves. Also, cobwebs in the chalet, broken floor tiles outside our front door, and no lights on outside one night when we went out. I guess you get what you pay for.

It isn't too far from town and activities, and the people were really welcoming. Not too much happening at Thaba Thipa itself, as the hot pool was broken. Still found good value for money. Self-catering and dstv worked well.

I had a quiet, great time. A beautiful scenic place, perfect for a quiet family getaway.

A lovely place for an out of the way break away. Everything you need for a home away from home. Loved the Eland and Impala that roam free. Great but unobtrusive hospitality - even Quinn the beautiful Irish terrier made us feel welcome. Will definitely return.
