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.

Thabamesti Farm offers family orientated accommodation therefore children are welcome. Ducks, chickens and turkeys give the children a sense of real farm life. A jungle gym and pony rides as well as a children’s pool are also available.

It was wonderful weekend. Christelle and June were wonderful hostesses and catered for our special needs (baby and 2 dogs). Owl cottage was squeaky clean when handed over. Balance of security deposit was returned timeously.
