Thabaledi which means Mountain of the Stars in Tswane welcomes you to the heart of the African Bushveld.
Beautiful dawns rising over the silhouetted thorny bushveld offer breath-taking views of the not-to-distant Waterberg mountains.
As the day breaches to its maximum and the sun looms bright in the sky there are many enthralling adventures that await you.
Some spectacular species such as: Helmeted Guineafowl, Swansens Franklin, Red Winged Starling, Red & Yellow Billed Hornbills, Red Chested Coocoo, Woodlands Kingfisher, Violet Woodhoepoe, Longtailed Shrike, African Paradise Flycatcher, Black Shouldered Kite, Jackal Buzzard, Pale Chanting Goshawk, Greater Kestrel, Giant Eagle Owl, Pearl Spotted Owl, Barn Owl, African Scops Owl and many many more can be observed.
Twilight evenings, sitting by the lodge sees you experience the extraordinary sounds of the bushveld: jackal calling in the distance, the beautiful kri-trrrrr of the strikingly vibrant blue Woodland Kingfisher as they dive into the pool.
As dusk surrounds you, you will be bewildered by magnificent game that come to greet you a good evening in and around the lodge. As you sit sipping on a Strawberry Daiquiri at our bar, be amazed by the graceful Nyala herds edging their way toward the lush grass encircling the bar and pool area.
As night falls, you take your seat upon our game viewer and your anticipation of encountering the abundant bushveld nightlife starts to overwhelm you, you realise – as you slowly exit the lodge you are engulfed by the green eyes of the Impala and Nyala watching your every move. Further along your evening drive you could encounter nocturnal species such as: Caracal, Jackal, Porcupine, Genet, Brown Hyena and maybe a rare glimpse of our illusive resident leopard.
