Thaba Tshweni is close to Berlin Falls, God's Window and Graskop. It is therefore an ideal location to explore this beautiful area. The chalets are set up for self catering. The owner is exceptionally helpful and an experienced guide. The chalets are quite close to the main road though thankfully the traffic is very light. The chalets are large and... More

I would recommend staying the night if you would like to do the Panorama Route. You can do everything in 1 day but I wouldn't suggest it. The manager has a beautiful big smile when you arrive and you feel very welcomed. There is amazing bird life in the area, you just need to step outside your room and there... More

We were in a chalet at the lodge and had all the space we needed. It is self-catering bit that was great because we had everything we needed. The Area of graskop is really worth visiting and Thaba Tsweni gives you the chance of doing so! We loved the dog and the cat (jessy and Garfield)

Exceptional location and property, good service and breakfast. Simple bimole - no air conditioner and it was too hot in January and only one bath room for the chalet with 2 bed rooms. Bring you food, it' s too cozy to make a braal and chat with the friends with the majestic view.

The wide spaced rooms, very friendly staff, best view from the terrace. The lodge open for latest check-in (time of drive from Johannesburg to Graskop may take more time, than Google advised, because fog) Two waterfalls, "god window" place with best point of view behind rainforest, Bourke's Luck Potholes -- a good places for visited at first day here.

This property is fantastic. About 15 mins drive from Graskop, situated in an area surrounded by lush green fields and you can just take a lovely peaceful walk, go cycling, or just relax in your chalet. It has a very well stocked kitchen and everything is kept clean and hygenic. It exceeds all your expectations. It has a lovely terrace... More

The government is Heaven on earth! Maria and Wendy run a family business. Always willing to help, and the lodges are full equipped, everything is perfect. Place is super safe and fantastic views.Our only regret is that we only stayed one night!!! Thanks!

My girlfriend stayed here for two nights, and we found the rustic cottages very welcoming and very relaxing. We were late on arrival, and turning up at 9:30, given a very warm welcome. Next morning, the owner gave us some excellent tips for walks (including the outstanding Guinea fowl route in Blyth canyon), and places to eat.

Thank Richard M
