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.

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 you prepare a fire for the evening barbecue.

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

HiOur stay at Thaba Thipa was great. The accomodation was clean and fully equiped. We had ourselves an awesome weekend.

We had a pleasant stay over the Easter weekend. However the place is in need of some maintenance, it was quite rugged. There isn't a proper oven and certain kitchen essentials are missing or broken. The pictures of the place are not a true reflection of what it is like. There is one Impala and a few birds, which was very disappointing as we were looking forward to a proper bush experience. There are two pools but the fiberglass is peeling off the hot pool and their are no umbrellas or chairs to sit on nearby. We didn't see the owners at all and the lady who cleaned was not very friendly.

It was nice and peaceful but the house needs a littleTLC. The curtains were all dirty, some of the plugs in the kitchen are loose- dangerous, the cold water tap in the bathroom is running constantly, plenty of cobwebs and dust behind the beds and a new layer of some paint inside the house would not do any harm.
