My husband and I had a couples massage at the Sinzinani Spa at Thaba Ya Batswana. It was tranquil and relaxing experience. If you're looking for a place to get away from the bustling city of Johannesburg and feel like you're in the bush, then this is the place for you. My only complaint is that you could hear the staff sitting outside chatting, while we were in our massage. I'd suggest they ask the staff to sit further away from the massage cabins during their breaks. After your massage, go over to the restaurant for a cocktail. Enjoy!

We stayed in a luxury room for our anniversary and my birthday which had the most amazing views. It was a great quick getaway. A lot of attention to detail, room service and restaurant food was great. Service was great. Except for our room card not working and had to phone twice for someone to open plus power failing 2-3 times in our room....other than that it was perfect. Thank u.

My wife and I got married at Thaba Ya Batswana in 2012, we went back a year later (2013) on our wedding anniversary weekend and again this year (2014) on our valentine's weekend. We have stayed in the honeymoon suite, the deluxe hotel room and this year in the luxury hotel room. Every time we visited Thaba Ya, our expectations were exceeded as this venue has absolutely everything. From trail walks and romantic picnics, to playing with white lion cubs at the Lion Cub sactuary to entrusting them with one of the most important days in our lives: our wedding.

Thaba Ya Batswana is far away yet close, what attracted me to this place is it's lion park. Such cute handful cubs you can hold and play with. The lion park is open only from 2.00 pm till 5.00 pm.

You better wear some good jeans and shoes , because these fellows can be a bit too playful sometimes. You have a guide who accompanies you. This was the first time I got a chance to touch actual Lions, cubs.My husband and I clicked away so many good pictures.

I really liked this place.
