Things to do
The Waterhole Pub: the charming and intimate pub offers a vast selection of wines and drinks with the best view of the North West. It overlooks the famous waterhole, which is lit up at night, offering guests the opportunity to spot both daytime and nocturnal visitors. Have your camera handy in case you get a chance to snap a pic or two.
The Thaba Khaya swimming pool and upper lapa: the sparkling pool is the prime location to get your tan on and is close enough to the lodge to ensure that every need is attended to by the friendly staff. Picturesquely set in the rock beside the upper thatched lapa, this is the ideal place to relax in the sun and share a few laughs and splashes.
Bird Watching and viewing deck: the viewing deck is the place to be, should you wish to spot wildlife, as it provides guests with the ultimate view of the waterhole where animals of all shapes and sizes drop by for a drink of water. Sit back, relax and savour the privilege of witnessing wildlife in its natural habitat. If you are an avid birder, don't forget your bird book so you can tick off the species as you spot them. The conservancy is home to over 270 species, so you will delight in endless viewings of the inhabitants of the sky.
Strolling the gardens: Thaba Khaya Lodge is set within a secure and fenced area where guests can stroll to simply take in the fresh air or catch a glimpse of the resident nyala, bushbuck, klipspringer, or other smaller creatures that have made their home in this bushveld oasis.
A visit to the resident spa: treat yourself and your partner to an African sensory journey that will leave you feeling calm and relaxed. A variety of spa treatments are available - to find out more, please visit the website.
