Memorable winter getaways at Thali Thali Game Lodge in Langebaan

Thali Thali Game Lodge

Thali Thali Game Lodge is a privately owned 1460ha reserve with the ideal location for a quick break-away on the West Coast. 

Being just over and hour’s drive from Cape Town, and only 15 minutes from the beautiful West Coast Town of Langebaan, it is the perfect combination of bush and beach. Located on the R27, it is a gateway to exploring the West Coast in all directions. 

What you will notice when making a stopover at Thali Thali is that this lodge is completely unpretentious.  It is simply authentic West Coast Hospitality aimed at the whole family. 

They promote inclusivity instead of exclusivity; down-to-earth farm stays rather than over the top luxury, warmth and friendliness instead of clinical perfection.  You will feel like part of the family right after you have had your complimentary welcome drink.

The Lodge has a wide range of accommodation options ranging from en-suite Glamping Tents, converted historical stone cottages and finally the grand dame ‘Ouma se Huis’.

The latter is the beautifully renovated original farmhouse with four bedrooms, an inviting fireplace in the kitchen and a wrap-around porch where the fallow deer will visit you while you relax with a morning coffee.

Reviews from previous guests

“Friendly service, from the day of arrival till the very end. Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable and for walking the extra mile on several occasions. We enjoyed the birdlife, peace and wide open spaces,” shared MoutonHanlie2023 on their TripAdvisor page.

KlaraPopov added; “Amazing! To be honest, I am not a big fan of game lodges and prefer big National parks, but we wanted to show the animals to our little one (almost 3yo) and found Thali Thali. The accommodation was nice and comfortable, the game drive was very nice, full of information and surprisingly without the feeling that it’s some show for tourists (or ZOO) and the staff is just amazing, friendly, helpful ️ recommended not only for families with kids!”

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
