• Chilling out
Just relax around the pool, or sit on the deck with your
book or binoculars. Take a stroll and find a shady tree
to shelter under for a picnic or a snooze.
• Nature walks
Intaba Thulile boasts a wide variety of fauna and flora.
Take the spotting list provided on a lovely walk around
the reserve and see what you can spot. Walkers and hikers
alike will spend many memorable hours in happy tramping.
We have a number of laid-out hiking trails for you to enjoy
– see the brochure in your chalet. Climb to the top
of the mountain and walk along for incredible views and
awesome rock formations.
There's nothing like a cool swim for beating the summer
heat. There is a beautiful swimming pool near the chalets,
(but far away enough for people to play without disturbing
you in your siesta), where you can enjoy a refreshing swim,
or a relaxing sunbathe on the loungers. Have an ice cold
drink on the ‘Martini seat’ and witness the
stunning sunsets over the mountains. You may be lucky and
see the giraffe walk by!
• Mountain Biking
What a pleasure to explore the reserve by mountain bike! The farm roads are perfect for a lovely leisurely bike ride, away from noisy traffic. Bring your bicycles along and explore the farm. You may wish to take a picnic lunch and stop to enjoy it whilst listening to the birds twittering merrily away.
For the more serious enthusiast –
Intaba Thulile is situated on the well known and physically
demanding Breedt's Nek Pass, which rises from an altitude
of 1440m from the farm in the south, to 1670m at the crest
(stunning views of Buffelspoort Dam!) before dropping down
to 1360m in the north. Now that’s good training for
While you are having your stroll or riding your bicycle, you will be sure to spot either the impala, rooi hartebees, nyala, giraffe, warthog, baboon, zebra, waterbuck, eland, germsbok , or ostriches, as they pronk about, graze in the bush and on the plains, or have a drink at the water hole.
Sorry - no private vehicles in the game park.
