  • Chalet Rockhaven
  • Description
  • Facilities
Approximately 2,000 million years ago, a meteorite of about 10 km in diameter collided with the Earth, causing the biggest and oldest impact site. Thabela Thabeng lies in the midst of this World Heritage Site, nestled in between the mountains and Vaal River, just 100 km from Johannesburg.

Thabela Thabeng means “be happy in the mountains”, advice that is not hard to follow at this beautiful resort. The luxury chalets nestle deep in the heart of the mountains. Each chalet, which is fully equipped for self-catering, features a balcony with breathtaking views, fireplaces and a cosy lapa. The youth hostel and silo are ideal for large groups and also offer self-catering facilities.

17 Reviews on Thabela Thabeng Mountain Retreat

It was wonderful and we will do it again. Thank you.


26 February 2014

Yes it was nice but to pay R1800 per night and there is no aircons only normal fans not working properly and the swimming pond looks like a fish pond this is way out to much for 5 adults. We are travellers and definitely this is not on. Amanzi view is also not what I saw on the web side and I especially asked if this is the same. This was a treat for my husbands birthday but his words was thanking you but you over spend to much.I even send my family for 2 days across the road for R900 per knight and that was even better but also like R300 over price.


25 February 2014

Its an 11km drive on a dirt road, so a 4x4 is advised, especially when entering the actual resort. The road in the resort needs to be fixed, it is dangerous, more pull of zones need to be added. The chalet itself was stunning, as was the view, it was perfect. No better place to relax and take the world off your shoulders and bond with the one you love. Will definitely be going back there, no price can be put on the closeness to nature you get while still having your everyday comforts.


10 February 2014

The location and people were great. We treat ourselves to a weekend away once a month, and visit a lot of places, but it was the first time at Thabela. The facilities are very basic and we actually expected more for the price.


13 January 2014

I really enjoyed our stay, the chalets was well equipped and very private. Romantic getaway!
