Set in the exquisite Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve, the largest proclaimed reserve in Johannesburg, Thaba Eco Hotel is an ideal family or romantic getaway an astonishingly short distance of just 18km from the city. Stay in spacious luxury in thatched-roof rondavels or for more privacy; book into the contemporary glass edifice encasing rooms with incredible countryside views. During World Cup 2010 this eco-conscious accommodation, with its solar-powered geysers and rain-water catchments for landscaping the gardens, set gently on stilts upon the earth played home to Mexico’s national soccer team.

The area is rich in flora, fauna, bird life and history. The hotel’s name refers to the indigenous Tswana settlements discovered in the Klipriviersberg dating back to 1300. Pottery remnants of these settlements still remain while nearby the historic Battle for Johannesburg raged in 1900.

The land extends to 300 hectares with a large portion – around 80 percent – fenced off from the hotel where wildebeest and zebra roam and the hotel offers eco-walks and two-hour eco-drives into the reserve.

More a resort than a hotel, there are plenty of attractions to keep couples or families happy including a newly built (June 2015) children’s playground and party area located far enough from the Sinzinani Day Spa to ensure everyone’s needs are met. There’s even a Cross Fit outdoor gym and a meditation trail built into the natural forest.

Opt for comfort food at the Kraal Kombuis restaurant, or sweet treats and high tea at the Olive Tree Coffee Shop. Halaal and kosher options are available by prior arrangement.
