Thaba Ya Batswana is one of my favorite hotels in the world; it is nestled on a hill and has picturesque scenery, you will never guess that you are in Johannesburg. The hustle and bustle of city life is a fleeting memory when you are in this magical kingdom.
The rooms are exceptional; it is beautifully laid out and comfortable. The best part is the space in the rooms. It is comfortable enough for a 2 week stay without any sign of cabin fever.
The staff paid attention to detail and the function that I attended was beautifully made up and our host of the evening had a winning smile and a desire to attend to our every need. I thought he might be our genie in a bottle… except instead of only three, we had a million wishes.
To top it all off, there are Lion cubs. Yes, real lion cubs, for those of you from other continents. They are magnificent! You are allowed to play with them and take pictures. It is one of the best experiences I ever have. Whilst playing with them, it becomes clear why they are the kings of the jungle. We also received an educational tour.
Over all this was a fantastic experience and I would recommend all travelers staying in JHB to definitely try this place – IT WAS MAGICAL!!! It is every thing you want in a holiday all rolled up in one!
PS: I forgot to mention the chocolate cake. It is too die for. It is the best choc cake in South Africa! No jokes.
