Attractions / Things to do

Thiane Wildlife Sanctuary, a working game farm utilised for the breeding of game, forms part of the Internationally proclaimed Waterberg Biosphere Reserve. A wide variety of indigenous trees, birds and animals are to be found including leopard, brown hyena and antbear on this pristine and tranquil farm.
Enjoy walking, game viewing, night drives, birding, tree spotting and mountain biking or just relax in camp and let the unspoiled surroundings seep into your soul .
A rocky 4 x 4 trail, driven in the late afternoon produces some magnificent sunsets. Take your sundowners with you and enjoy the scenery at Eland Rock.
Only 6kms from the spectacular Mokolo Dam (former Hans Strijdom), Thiane is ideally situated for those who enjoy fishing and boating. Please note that no watersports are permitted on the dam. Fishing competitions are regularly held at the dam.
Marakele Game Reserve is close enough for a day trip.
We are only 117kms from the Stockpoort Border Post and 131kms from the Groblersbrug Border Post into Botswana, ideal for a stop over venue.
Also suitable for environmental groups and teambuilding.
Our animals are not unique, but the experience will be.
