Hotels in Johannesburg South

Our Choice of Hotels in Johannesburg South

North, south, east, or west – which hotels in or near Johannesburg are the best? We cannot pass comment on other hotels to the north, west, or east of Johannesburg. However, we can tell you about our hotel in Johannesburg South, where we are located, and the wonderful features in the immediate area by our stunning hotel in the south.



Our hotel is the Thaba Eco Hotel – so named because we’re in and of Africa, and we practice the latest, most effective eco-initiatives and policies throughout our operation, to ensure that our carbon footprint and that of our guests remain minimal.

We achieve this without cutting back on the luxurious amenities and compromising on the overall 4-star guest experience at Thaba. In fact, our guests would be unaware of our green policies if we weren’t so passionate about spreading the word and the practice.



Thaba is located in the unspoiled Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve, the perfect location to put our eco practices to work, and yet we’re conveniently close to Johannesburg and the highway network that surrounds the city. Thaba Eco Hotel is easily accessible from all points of the compass and only some 20 minutes by road in a southerly direction from Johannesburg’s city centre.

Indigenous game, consisting mainly of antelope species, roams freely in the reserve. Optional nature drives or walks may be arranged for visitors who wish to explore the reserve and its fauna and flora more extensively and at close quarters. Our eco package is just the thing for nature lovers.


Award-Winning Accommodation

Our guests are accommodated in a total of 52 luxurious, spacious rooms that were constructed to maximise the views over the reserve, whilst minimising any negative impact on the environment. We have three types of rooms on offer – deluxe, luxury bushveld, and VIP suites.

The powers that be selected our 4-star Thaba to accommodate the Mexican Soccer Team during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and we’re also two-time National Winners of the Lilizela Tourism Award in the Accommodation category.


Further Facilities

  • Nine conference venues with a choice of conference packages
  • Two wedding venues, plus a church and a selection of four packages

The Kraal Restaurant is a favourite with Johannesburg’s discerning diners, who enjoy gourmet dishes with subtle African influences, served in a beautiful, romantic venue within a nature reserve. High teas, served in the Olive Room, are a popular choice for daytime diners in a slightly less formal venue.

Whatever the occasion, treat yourself and your guest/s to 4-star luxury at Thaba, your hotel in the south of Johannesburg that’s unlike any other, in the north, east, or west.
