mokopane-thabaphaswa-mountain-sanctuary-01Sheltered by its enclosing mountains in a natural basin is a wonderful bushveld retreat, Thabaphaswa Mountain Sanctuary.

A special destination for the true nature lover. Experience the most amazing sunrises when the sun grazes the mountain tops. Gaze at the stars on clear evenings from your bed in our uniquely designed shelters. Enjoy a fresh outdoor hot shower and prepare breakfast under a canopy of trees.

Our overnight camps are camouflaged between the big boulders on the farm and blend into the landscape.

If nature is important to you, you will truly enjoy our eco-tourism destination. Our design and building techniques were implemented in such a manner to have as little impact as possible on nature.
