About
Thali Thali is a 1,460 hectare Cape West Coast game and fynbos reserve situated just off the R27 near Langebaan, just over 1 hours drive from Cape Town, bordering the West Coast National Park. The Cape West Coast is intoxicating and the Langebaan area with its beautiful lagoon has a charm that keeps people coming back year after year. Come and enjoy West Coast hospitality at its best while drinking in the most beautiful sunsets and night skies from our deck. The restaurant and bar is situated next to a boma and splash-pool which makes it cosy and comfortable with great views. Enjoy a lazy lunch in our garden, while the kids play in the splash pool or monkey around on the jungle gyms. Our food is true to our region, true to the tradition of South African cooking. Meals are beautifully displayed, and generous portions always leave our guests satisfied and excited to come back again. We offer buffets on Sundays, and our bread displays and platters are legendary. We also cater for conferences, celebrations and weddings and enjoy planning that special menu with our guests. We can cater for up to 60 guests in our cozy restaurant, but our marquee can accommodate up to 100 guests for those larger functions or weddings. A visit to Thali Thali offers the ideal laid-back West Coast style break-away - complete with game drives, archery lessons and sundowners on the deck for the not so adventurous. We boast a wide range of game like kudu, oryx, giraffe, red hartebeest, eland, zebra, sable, springbok, black wildebeest, duiker, bontebok, steenbok, ostrich, dromedary camel and emu. The reserve is also home to many different bird species and guests are welcome to enjoy a walk in the fynbos to view these creatures.

This was our first experience of glamping and we were not disappointed! Our chalet was well equipped with a big comfy bed, lovely white fluffy towels, kettle, fridge, microwave and even an air conditioning unit, which we didn't need to use. The bathroom area was basic but adequate. Staff were friendly, welcoming and very accommodating throughout our stay. We were a short walk away from reception and the restaurant, where the food on offer was excellent, with a wide choice of breakfast options, and a varied dinner menu too. A great selection of cocktails at very reasonable prices was also available. A big shout out to Ian(?), our archery coach and our game drive guide. Ian was very knowledgeable, providing us with lots of information about the wildlife we spotted

Our weekend away at ThaliThali started with a game drive. The guide was very knowledgeable and we almost spotted all the diffetent game and we even spotted Frikkie the Sable. Everybody is very friendly and helpfull at the lodge. We stayed in Chalet #2, in my opinion the best Chalet. Everything is tidy, clean and we only needed to pack clothes and food. We also enjoyed lunch in the restaurant. The food is very tasty, well priced and you get a descent portion. This is a definite yes to visit and rest the soul.

Absolutely amazing. Everything was so much more than we expected and the staff and people that run the place were 5 star. Loved it and would highly recommend it. We stayed in chalet 1 and chalet 3 which are the 1 bedroom units, did the game drive, braaied and ate at the restaurant. There was no reason to leave once you were there.

We went for a birthday lunch and left feeling quite disappointed. The setting of the restaurant is really beautiful and when you’re sitting outside on the patio you can enjoy the tranquility of the bush. The staff is very friendly and the service excellent, but that is unfortunately where it stops. To start off- the alcohol free drinks were quite horrible and we were charged for the price of an alcoholic drink. My mojito was a lemon wannabe drink. I ordered a Chicken Cordon Bleu, but got 2 chicken schnitzels with a piece of ham and cheese slapped together. This dish had absolutely nothing in common with an actual Cordon Bleu! The mushroom sauce was bland too. The Hunter’s Choice was a better meal and the ribs were good, but nothing exceptional. I can recommend that you try the chips though. I could have had a plate of those and nothing else. However, for dessert, we ordered a delightful sticky toffee pudding which softened the blow of the mediocre and disappointing experience.

Dear Guest Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are very happy that you enjoyed the setting and staff at Thali Thali. We are, however, sorry that you were disappointed with your meal. We have specifically redesigned our Chicken Cordon Bleu to ensure a fresh, juicy, crunchy, home-made version of this dish. I support our chef 100% in her design, and I have myself enjoyed the dish on more than one occasion. Luckily the meals of your dining partners were enjoyed - and you are right - our chips are phenomenal! Unfortunately, we have found that the non-alcoholic drinks are priced at exactly the same prices as their alcoholic versions. We therefore have to charge the same. Our virgin cocktails are cheaper than the standard versions though. We hope to see you again - even if it is just for a plate of chips and a sticky toffee pudding. Have a lovely day!

Stayed here for 3 nights in one of the safari tents. It was very well presented and had everything you could need. Fridge, microwave, toasters hairdryer, safe. Proper bathroom, and it's own braai area.Nice verandah for views of the sunset. We had snacks and one evening meal in the restaurant. All very good, home cooked and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was good. You chose from the menu. All good, and good portion sizes. We did the game drive which was very interesting and the young girl(Eunika?) Was great. Giraffe, wildebeest, buffalo, lots of buck. Again very reasonably priced for about 2 hours. Special mention for all the staff they really could not be more helpful and friendly, especially Ashely(don't forget the beans 🤣). Really excellent service and banter. Can't recommend place highly enough Please visit them, you won't be disappointed

Did the self drive game drive and saw most of the animals they have. Enjoyed a little 4x4 driving at the same time😉 Had lunch in the restaurant and it was really good. Prices are more than reasonable and quality and quantity, excellent. Due to “lockdown” did not see their wine list etc but they have a small bar and cost sitting area, next to reception. Well worth a turn there, when driving on the R27 - better than the Wimpy.

Another wonderful and memorable stay in the Farmhouse! Third visit with kids and have only received the warmest hospitality, nothing was too much trouble for Amalia and her team. Would highly recommend a visit and be surprised by the wonderful wildlife on display. Accommodation was equipped with everything one could possibly need. Thank you!
