Misty Cliffs has acquired its name for its, rather obviously, misty cliffs – it overlooks the wild and tempestuous sea, and is renowned not only for incredible days and beautiful beaches but also for windy and wet days, depending on the season. Misty Cliffs is something of a magical little hamlet that is also a conservation village bordering on a nature reserve, a wonderful place to find peace and quiet and a spectacular setting at the best of times.

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’.
