Thabile Lodge is just outside Outdshoorn - easy to find, in a beautifully setting. There are a number - 6? - of semi-detached cottages, set well apart and with a view over the nearby mountains: a special treat in the early mornings and at sunset when the colours on the rocks near the top of the mountain. Len, his mother...

Photos on the website do not do Thabile Lodge justice--this was truly a lovely place in an unexpected location, with stunning art work on display throughout. The views of the Swartberg Mts were fabulous, almost matching the hospitality of our hosts during our three night stay--Len, Willem, and Sabine. We were made to feel like family and shared much laughter...

What an incredibly wonderful place, Len Bornman and his staff go out of their way to give you incredible service, the food is so good you don't know what to order next. Can't wait to visit again, I will recommend Thabile lodge to everyone I know.

We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. The rustic cabins are very comfortable and set facing beautiful mountain views. The main lodge is elegant and the service is outstanding. The pool area is lovely and the grounds beautifully landscaped. Breakfast is included and dinners are optional but we highly recommend dining here. We would definitely stay here again...

We stayed here for only one night but wished it was much longer. The lodge is beautiful and Len and Willem were very friendly and attentive hosts. The food was outstanding - and a much better option than having to drive into Oudtshoorn to find somewhere. We will definitely be back - but for longer next time!

We found this place from the Information Centre in Oudtshoorn. What a find this was. A great welcome from the owner with a drink in our hands within minutes of arriving. The accommodation is in purpose built units in the grounds with amazing views of the nearby mountains. Each unit is a double unit with its own sitting area. Very...

This was our second stay at Thabile lodge and we once again stayed for 3 days. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you; however, if you are looking for comfortable, clean, unique accomodations, friendly staff, and fun times with Len, then we would definitely recommend Thabile Lodge. As it is a bit of a...

Stayed in Thabile Lodge for one night but wish we'd booked for longer. Such a warm welcome from Len, ma and Vilhelm. The food was amazing, views by the pool were stunning and the room was perfect. The 4 dogs were so friendly and added to the homely atmosphere that this places oozes. A true haven full of smiles! Hope...

Within seconds of us arriving Len and Ma made us feel at home. We stayed for two nights and throughly enjoyed the Thabile lodge hospitality. Dinner is a communal affair, where all the guests eat together and as Len says, drink grappe until you all speak the same language! The ostrich fillet is not to be missed. Basil is the...
