What a magnificent piece of paradise! We stayed over at Thabile Lodge for 1 night and came home feeling like we had been away for a week. Excellent food, warm and luxurious accommodation and fantastic company. The view is amazing and the snow on the mountains was exquisite. Thank you Len for your hospitality

We stayed with our 2 daughters, 6 and 5. We booked 2 adjacent cottages and stayed with Len for 2 nights - we wished we had stayed much longer... Len was the most wonderful host, with a wicked sense of humour! He treated us like friends and we had lovely meals in his company and that of his staff. Cottages...

On our recent round trip combining the Little Karoo with the Garden Route we especially enjoyed staying at Thabile Lodge thanks to its wonderful location and great views of the surrounding countryside but also because of its owner's Len friendliness, charm and openness. After only one night you feel like an old family member including the dogs and the very...

My parents and I stayed one night on our drive from Addo Elephant Park to Paarl, and I agree with some of the other reviewers in saying that we wish we could have stayed longer. First off, Thabile is not really “in” Oudtshoorn, it’s more by De Rust and up a long dirt road where you second-guess yourself if you’re...

We stayed overnight from CT to JHB - really wished we could have stayed for longer. My 2 boys aged 6 and 2 were devastated to leave the ostriches and especially the gorgeous dogs. The food and company was as awesome as the setting and the accommodation. Can not recommend this place highly enough - but make sure you stay...

This was our last stop of our unforgettable Garden Route-journey and by far the most pleasant stop. We stayed here for 2 nights. We had no expectations about this place. To be honoust, we were very curious because it was a bit outside the city but when we got there we had a very warm welcome by Lennie. What a...

Having stayed here a number of times over the years the lodge just keeps getting better and better. This is a B & B with a lot of extras, pool, wonderful sunset views from your own personal lodge veranda and the food is fabulous. There is a well stocked bar but best of all a wonderful host, Len, who just...

Len was great, the cat was enormous, service was super and room with large bath and shower were exactly what we needed after a long drive over the top of Bavianskloof from Addo. Take advantage of the great food Len's team cook up in the evening if you have the option. The Ostrich steak was possibly the best piece of...

We arrived at Thabile Lodge hot and dusty – it’s a bit of a bumpy gravel drive to get there – and Len greeted us with beer and wine on a shady verandah overlooking one of the best views of our entire trip. Surrounded by his dogs and a cat the size of a small family car we just sat...
