It was cozy, clean and all Covid-19 protocols were adhered to. We were not concerned about Covid-19 as there was hand sa..."more

"Wife and I went to Thulamela for a bit of alone time and were very impressed. Chalets not on top of each other giving a bit of solitude. Basic amenities to make your stay comfortable and close enough to town for getting necessities. I will definitely recommend it if you want to have a relaxing weeke..."more
"Its a really nice place, with some massive potential. However for the price, I would expect a more comfy bed, and a couch would be good. R270 for a single braai pack is a bit much. All in all not bad, just not fantastic.
Dear Alexander, thank you for your feedback Ð w..."

the fire for braai, you feel like in the bushveld, and then you can relax with
something cool in your hand. Thulamela is a place to vi..."

"We really enjoyed our stay - the peace, quietness, and the opportunity to just be "alone" without seeing other people, was really wonderful.
