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.

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 you prepare a fire for the evening barbecue.

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

Safari: Thaba Thipa is located on a 22-hectare farm with eland, impala, duiker, klipspringer and bush buck.

                  Lots to be improved, There was no umbrella's as in the pic.the drive way into the resort, is a singly road extremely rocky needs to be tared. they really need to improve by investing in some water slides.No gazebo area at the pool.Should have a shop on the property / selling ice creams, cool drinks and crisp.
