In the heart of Gauteng, Dinokeng ‘a place of rivers’, and Leeuwkloof Valley is a game lodge surrounded by wildlife roaming in a 400-hectare game reserve. This is KwaTHABISILE Game Lodge where Alexandra welcomes you to her Out of Africa. Wake up in the morning to game grazing peacefully under your bedroom window. Wander over to the pond or laze by the pool and enjoy sunset drinks overlooking the valley into the bush watching the animals graze. Enjoy the sounds of the birds sing in our valley, see and hear the night come to life. At KwaTHABISILE you can experience nature even though you are close to many other enriching activities such as nearby Cullinan and experience ‘All of Africa in a day’.

During a foal’s first two days of life, the mother keeps him close and limits direct contact with the other zebras so that he learns to identify her by sight, smell and sound. However, those single-toe hooves were made for walking, and within 15 minutes from birth, the foal is able to stand up on his own. Within an hour, he is walking and able to accompany his mother as she rejoins the herd.
