The ‘eco’ in our name is more than just a word. It defines everything we do and every element of the way we work. For starters, we’re committed to managing our environmental impact in a sustainable and responsible way, with a strong focus on xeriscaping (Xeriscaping – refers to the conservation of water through creative landscaping used at the hotel to minimise the need for water use.)
Thaba’s Drive & Picnic spots in Johannesburg offers lovely features like charm, fun and outdoor joy for any picnic, but with the magnificent views, secret spots and lovely hideaways we’re known for. Then, there’s the food. Our range of picnic baskets (4 different baskets for the adults to choose from and 1 amazing kiddie basket) contains wonderful delicacies.
