What a gem of a place, we stayed in 7 places in all on our honeymoon in South Africa and this is one of the most memorable place. What a wonderful find, we are so happy we made the detour off the garden route to Oudshoorn where we found waterfalls, Cango caves and the wonder Prince Albert pass but most of all we found accommodation at Thabile Lodge to be one unforgettable place. For us it was the shier beauty of the place and the owner, From the Lodges that are designed in a beautiful South African style, with the powerful showers and a bed you could sleep forever in.
We were arriving late, Being Irish we stopped for “one” Drink in a bar over an hour away, We rang to let Lenny know we would be very late and we would stop for food at a petrol station, only to be told by Lenny there was no need and he would be more than happy to cook for us,
When we arrive to Thablie lodge about 3 hours later in the dark we were greeted by Lenny and the lovely Nober. They served us an amazing 3 course meal with a lovely cool bottle of wine. We sat on the veranda wondering what we had done or ha to do.. (ha ha).. to be given such a lovely welcome.
And from there it only got better, each day we drove around Oudshoorn, (you’d need two days) and returned to swim in the pool each evening, chat with the animals while the boys went for a walk around the farm to see all the milking cows.
