Apart from the private seating on your veranda from where you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Olifants River valley, there are also numerous seating spots in the garden where you can leisurely get lost in a novel or just hide away for some quiet “me-time”…

 

Our Facilities

Restaurant:

Our English Breakfast buffet is the perfect start to a busy day with fresh fruit platters, a bread and cereal selection, cold meats and cheeses, as well as hot breakfast with special requests made to order.

We offer a daily lunch menu or picnic baskets for our guests exploring the wonders of Klein Karoo.

For dinner enjoy exceptional local wine and traditional home-cooked cuisine meticulously prepared by our chef and served in the spacious, candlelit dining room of the 1902 Victorian homestead.

Please inform us of special dietary requirements in advance.

Farm Tours:

Join Bartel for early morning coffee in the gazebo before an informative, pre-arranged tour of this sustainable working ostrich, alfalfa and cattle farm.  Learn about the day to day activities in the life of a full time farmer, as well as the giant birds and the trials and tribulations of farming with them from one of the few experts on the ostrich industry.

Weddings:

Where to say “I do…”

We have a lovely Victorian gazebo in the centre of the garden with spectacular views of the Olifants River Valley and the Swartberg Mountains as a backdrop where the only thing more breathtaking will be you, the bride…

The same view can be enjoyed as you descend down the two staircases in front of the original homestead to the main terrace below where your happy groom and guests are awaiting your arrival. This is ideal for slightly larger wedding parties.

Alternatively, you can tie the knot in any church of your choice for a more traditional feel.

THABILE LODGE

4-stars

Thabile Lodge 

Thabile means “a place of happiness” in the native language Sotho and is situated at the foothills of the Swartberg mountains in the Little Karoo, just outside of Oudtshoorn, South Africa. Your host Len, will warmly welcome you to his Lodge… which has become a natural extension of his home – you will arrive as guests, but leave as friends!

The lodge’s quiet, farm atmosphere offers sanctuary from the glow and buzz of the city – the perfect oasis for balancing the mind, body and soul. Please know that we are an animal-loving Lodge and Len as well as all of his 4-legged friends, look forward to welcoming you to Thabile Lodge!

The stillness of the ancient landscape brings with it a much slower pace of living. Here, people take time to chat – when they ask how you are, they really want to know and they’ll sit down with you for a while to hear.

Add to that the breathtaking landscape, a unique biome of lush flowers and an abundance of wildlife, the Karoo will capture your heart and you will want to stay forever!
