Thabametsi Farm Description
Thabametsi 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. The diverse ecosystem encourages a wide range of bird life, particularly on the dam. Smaller animals like bush buck, scrub hares, mongoose and squirrels have made Thabametsi their home. Activities include cycling, canoeing, fishing, swimming, bird-watching, various ball games and nature walks. Canoeing & fishing in the dam or mountain biking are some of the attractions for the more active. Thabamesti offers family orientated accommodation therefore children are welcome. Ducks, chickens and turkeys give the children a sense of real farm life. A jungle gym, pony rides and even a ride on a tractor are available for the children. Indoor fireplaces and heaters cater for cosy winter nights whilst summer evenings are braai-time in the lovely bomas under the stars. Thabametsi is an ideal venue for families, photographers, artists, environmentalists and small tour groups.
