2019-02 KwaThabisile Bush Retreat

Overview, trip report, images and reviews from our visit to Drakensberg Sun Resort.


After seeing the work we did for her mother’s website, we were approached by Alexandra Roessingh, the owner of KwaThabisile, to do a redesign of her website and to provide new photographs for the website.

In the heart of Dinokeng, you will find KwaThabisile Game Lodge nestled in the 200 ha Leeuwkloof Valley Conservancy.

Here Alexandra and Kay welcome you to their own ‘Out of Africa’.

Enjoy sundowners and magnificent sunsets over the Leeuwkloof Valley and hear the night sounds come to life over the soft crackling of the boma fire.

Enjoy sumptuous poolside breakfasts overlooking the magnificent Leeuwkloof Valley, wander down to three dams and eight springs, or enjoy invigorating walks through the bush. The songs of abundant birdlife accompany your every move.

KwaThabisile is the ideal venue for exclusive group breakaways: friends and family get-togethers, conferences, team building, parties, bachelor parties. Here we have a NO music policy unless you book the lodge EXCLUSIVELY (min 22 people) in order to respect our guests’ privacy who come to break away from the hustle and bustle of the city life!

KwaThabisile Bush Retreat is a true sanctuary a mere 1 hour from Johannesburg and OR Tambo Airport, and only 30 minutes from Pretoria / Tshwane.

Travels with Tshukudu: KwaThabisile Bush Retreat Trip Report

KwaThabisile Bush Retreat

From the main city centres, a short trip along the main road and down a dirt road brings you to Kwathabisile, nestled amongst big shady trees and the low rolling hills of Dinokeng. Upon arrival, you are directed to your accommodation unit and eager hands are there to assist with unloading your vehicle.

The seven accommodation units are arranged in a semi-circle and interlinked with walkways that criss-cross underneath one of the huge trees. A sparkling pool with relaxing furniture is located close-by. The surrounding gardens are well kept and maintained.

The unit we occupied was comfortably furnished with a sufficiently stocked kitchenette, catering for your basic needs. Although the units are located in close proximity to each other, they still provide enough privacy. An ample supply of firewood is supplied at a small charge.

Alex and Kai, the hosts, are friendly and engaging and keen to assist with any requests that might arise. Their friendly dogs often come to visit and make sure that everything is still in order!
Kwathabisile provides the ideal venue to unwind and de-stress. In addition to this, it also caters for family get-togethers, team-building exercises and small conferences.
