                      I loved our long weekend stay at Thaba-metsi. My 2 girls were constantly entertained with pony rides, tractor rides, feeding animals, swimming and long nature walks. I went for a run on the farm property, and was met with horses grazing and birds chirping around me. Our house was wonderful, with absolutely everything we needed - and even farm fresh eggs from the little shop on the premises. We loved it, and will return in future.

                      The whole experience was amazing, Thabametsi delivered on what it promises, it is not a resort but a farm. While access to the farm is a bit of a challenge as the 8 km stretch road leading to the farm is treacherous but it adds to the whole experience. But overall we had a wonderful stay and the staff at the farm was just awesome.

                      The hospitality was out of this world. The host and all her employees went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. The peace of mind. Awe-sum very relaxing weekend.

                      We had a wonderful weekend. The owl cottage was bigger than anticipated. There are lovely walking trails on the farm and we really enjoyed the company of the farm dogs. The hosts are friendly and helpful. All in all, a great stay.
