Thabametsi is a tranquil rustic self-catering getaway in the heart of scenic Magaliesburg. Situated on a 132Ha farm, Thabametsi is nestled between two koppies overlooking the valley to the Witwatersrand Mountains.

This malaria-free location assures guests of beautiful sunsets and great hospitality. The diverse ecosystem encourages a wide range of bird life, particularly on the dam. Smaller animals like bush buck, scrub hares, mongoose and squirrels have made Thabametsi their home.

     Reviewed by Johan Botha over a year ago

    Thabametsi was amazing & the owners are warm and welcoming. The accommodation is well equipped and way more than we expected. Even though it was cold they made sure the place was well equipped for that. I highly recommend Thabametsi as a relaxing holiday destination.
