                  Thaba Thipa is a beautiful lodge, we were blessed enough to book all 4 chalets to ourselves so we had the pleasure of privacy. Dealing with the owner Veronica was an absolute breeze. I strongly advise carrying bug repellent. 10min away from warm baths forever resort. We loved our stay❤️

                  The place is accessible. It is so tranquil and clean. On top of it having access to two swimming pools - one with cold and the other hot water. This is real value for money.

                  Everytime we stay at Thaba Thipa we come back refreshed. The chalets are very rustic (in a good way) and somewhat private. First time visiting in Spring ( rain and heat), so we didn't really enjoy the thousands of flying insects at night. We prefer the winter months...

                  A place to go when you need to relax and de-stress it is very quiet. We loved the swimming pools, the rooms have space and they are neat.
