Welcoming Guests Since 2002
Our beautiful farm Thabametsi (meaning Mountain Water) lies between two koppies overlooking the valley to the Witwatersrand Mountains. We have a mixture of agricultural and wilderness areas making it fairly unique. Grasslands for the animals to graze on and the wilderness areas that provide shelter for the little creatures – squirrels, monkeys, buck, mongoose, porcupines, jackal, civets and even a serval that has made the farm it’s home. We cater for families and couples in our self catering cottages. Children are welcome and there are many activities to keep them occupied whilst our dog visitors are free to run and explore the open spaces.
Only just over an hour from Johannesburg and Pretoria in the beautiful Magaliesburg area.
Our son started the accommodation for overseas students doing a gap year in South Africa soon after we purchased the farm in 2001. He then decided to move on and we gradually renovated the original old farm buildings over time and did extensive alterations to three of our cottages to make them more spacious. We also added a coffee and gift shop and a games room. There are currently six units ranging from a 2 to an 8 sleeper which are family, pet and child friendly. Many extra services and activities are available on offer on request. All units have braai facilities and are fully equipped.
Our vision is to provide a safe environment for children to enjoy the freedom of exploring the wide open spaces and experiencing a little of farm life, allowing the parents to relax, knowing that their children are free from harm.
Our mission is to share our beautiful farm with like-minded people and to encourage our guests to leave the bright lights behind them and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Thabametsi in comfortable, friendly surroundings – a place where families and friends can re-connect in a relaxed atmosphere.
Our goal for the future is to continue along this path and to show the children the importance of caring for our natural resources. We aim to continue to offer our guests a quality service so that they feel at home here leaving them with the desire to return, whether to enjoy the cosy winter fires or for the fun of the swimming pool in summer.
