We were most disappointed with our overall stay at Thaba Manzi Ranch. (September 2013) Although the lady that assisted us on arrival was very friendly, not once did we get to meet or see the owners. In addition we were only provided with one toilet roll and huge signs proclaimed that we had to supply any further toilet paper if needed. No where was this mentioned on the website or prior to our arrival. It was the same situation with wood for our braai fire. When one is unaware that these basics need to be brought along with us and we are some distance from a shopping area, it is indeed unpleasant. In addition the chalets were not very well maintained. We had pieces of hanging ceiling in our room, both bedside lamps were not working and no bathroom amenities were supplied. Also if you wanted to participate in any activities for example game drives or any other activities you have to phone, you could not take a walk because there is no one to explain or show you where the farm borders are All in all we feel that the cost per night(R 850.00) did not justify the quality of accommodation that we expected and will certainly not be returning there and also would not recommend it to anybody. I would also recommend that Safari now take a drive and inspect places before they put their name to advertising and selling a place. NB there was a pen with approx 20 bush pigs behind our rooms - you can imagine the flies. I say no more.
