Thaba Khaya Lodge is situated within Sable Ranch, a 4000 hectare private reserve near Brits in the North West Province – a conveniently quick 90 minute drive from Jhb. Thaba Khaya (house on a rock) is an accurate description as this elegant game lodge sits atop a large outcrop of granite.

With an abundance of game including leopard, lion & buffalo and a multitude of migratory birds, Thaba Khaya Lodge offers an unforgettable birding and wildlife safari experience led by highly qualified field games. This malaria free reserve is one of the largest breeding programmes for Zambian, Malawian and Zimbabwean Sable, as well as Roan antelopes. There is no commercial hunting on Sable Ranch and guests are encouraged to become involved in their conservation efforts to help protect the rich heritage and wildlife that our beautiful country has to offer.

This serene, tranquil hide, situated on edge of a still expanse of water, provides excellent views of some of the 270 bird species which have been identified on Sable Ranch.

Additional guest facilities include a cosy African themed guest lounge with a stunning brick fireplace, two dining areas, an elevated bar, a pool deck with magnificent views of the natural bush surroundings and watering hole and a Spa where a variety of relaxing treatments are provided by skilled beauty therapists.
