Welcome to KwaThabisile Game Lodge on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Cullinan, Northern Gauteng.
In the heart of Gauteng, Dinokeng ‘a place of rivers’, and Leeuwkloof valley, is a game lodge surrounded by wildlife roaming in a 400 hectare game reserve. This is KwaThabisile Game Lodge where Alexandra welcomes you to her Out of Africa. Wake up in the morning to game grazing peacefully under your bedroom window. Wander over to the pond or laze by the pool and enjoy sunset drinks overlooking the valley and into the bush watching the animals graze.
Enjoy the sounds of birds sing in our valley, see and hear the night come to life. At KwaThabisile you can experience nature even though you are close to many other enriching activities such as nearby Cullinan and experience ‘All of Africa in a day’.
The accommodation is ideal for groups of friends and families, small conferencing, productions and weddings. The old Thabisile farm house was originally built by the Italian Prisoners’ of War.
