Thabela Thabeng

Mountain Retreat

In the midst of this World heritage Site, lies Thabela Thabeng, nestled in and between the mountains and Vaal River, 100km from Johannesburg.
Thabela Thabeng means: “Be Happy in the Mountains”.  Advice that is not hard to follow at this beautiful resort with no TV’s.
We do have strong Vodacom, but only limited MTN reception.
The luxury chalets nestle deep and  secluded in the heart of the Mountains. Chalets have balconies with breathtaking views, fire places and cozy lapas. They are fully equipped for self catering.If you have a bakkie or SUV, NOW is the time to bring it on holiday! If not, vehicles with a higher ground clearance is best suitable to travel along the gravel road and up the mountain through the Dome Mountains to this Retreat that rejuvenates you – in harmony with nature.
Entering the mountain ridges formed by  upturned earth crust, a sense of wonder combined with an old-world charm enfolds you. Together  with the abundant fauna, flora and river , it becomes clear why the famous poet, Totius, described this area as “the place of angels”.
Whatever the exact forces were that formed the Dome, it was done to our benefit  in a lot of ways. We express our love by giving, we remember passed lives engraved in the granite, we marvel at the rich variety of animal and plant life, experience romance, live adventurous and be rejuvenated body, mind, spirit and soul.
Kiosk: We have a kiosk available at reception where you can get firewood, charcoal, cool drinks , sweets and home made cakes and preserves and meat for braai.
