About Thabametsi Farm

Thabametsi Farm meaning ‘Mountain Water’ 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. It is not far from the Cradle of Humankind or Sun City. There are many activities in the area to satisfy all interests.

The diverse ecosystem encourages a wide range of bird life, particularly on the dam. Smaller animals like bush buck, scrub hares, mongoose, squirrels, porcupines, jackal and civets have made Thabametsi their home, even the frogs participate with their evening chorus.


The accommodation available consists of two six sleeper bungalows (TGCSA 2 star rating and AA Recommended) consisting of three double rooms each plus a living room / kitchen. The master bedroom is en-suite.
