Spent our first anniversary here. This place is truly a hidden gem! I love the additional touches like fresh rose petals leading to your cottage and around the hot tub, tealights on your porch. Absolutely enjoyed having our own private hot tub on the deck! Each cottage also has its own braai area. The breakfast was delicious and different every morning but best of all delivered to your cottage!
Staff were friendly and helpful and Penny even arranged a breakfast picnic bag for the morning we were out on the game drive. Place is also very close to Kruger National Park. Thank you Penny and team!

Loved the cosines, the privacy, the cleanliness and the attention to detail.
Showers need to be revamped/modernized but thats minor. The overall experience was amazing, Jacuzzi was super hot and welcoming, the candles made for a romantic feel for our anniversary,Her braai package was absolutely worth it.I loved it

Absolutely loved it! Perfect for couples and would recommend it to anyone. The staff was exceptional! Nothing better than relaxing in the outside Jacuzzi with a glass of wine. The units have quite a bit of space between them and most of the time it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The town is just around the corner and a lot of attractions in the area.

We've been on our honeymoon trip and loved our stay at Thulamela! We arrived quite late in the evening, almost after sunset and Penny had a very warm welcome for us. The decorated path way, full of rose petals and candles leading to our room was mind- blowing. We enjoyed our short visit so much.We even got the chance for a late check out, to start the next day in no rush. Room has been clean and neat, honesty bar with cold drinks was lovely. If you want to find something to bother about, than you might say, that the porcelain and bathroom fittings are a little old, but nothing to heavily worry about. Highly recommend to visit her.
