About Thaba Pitsi Nature Reserve
Up on the hill, in the heart of the nature reserve are five Luxury Tents and three Ndebele Chalets The tents are individually decorated, each with an en suite bathroom. The tents are nestled in the shade of indigenous trees with a private wooden deck overlooking the magnificent hills and are separated of about 150m from each other to offer all the privacy you wish. The Ndebele Chalets are close to each other and situated close to the Bush Bar, the swimming-pool and the rest of our facilities.
Either on 4x4, on horseback, or even simply on foot, one gets close to zebra, giraffes and antelopes that live quietly on the 500 ha estate. Up there on the hill, in the heart of the nature reserve, luxurious safari tents or bungalows speak of sweet dreams under the stars of the African sky.
