Project Description

Introduction

Thali Thali Game Lodge is a privately owned 1460 ha farm in the West Coast close to Langebaan.

Owners Thys and Amalia van Niekerk bought Thali Thali in December 2013 as a running concern. Our main focus is accommodation, venue, restaurant, game drives and archery lessons. We added hunting to the line-up to control excess male animals. Our unique West Coast Fynbos allows good stalking opportunities. The popular West Coast town Langebaan is only 13km away and offers fishing, kite surfing and lots more. Our game species include Giraffe, Eland, Kudu, Zebra, Sable, Springbuck, Bontebok, Gemsbuck (Oryx), Ostrich and more.

We have 16 species and offer bow hunting from 8 hides and walk and stalk rifle hunting (silencers compulsory). We offer accommodation for 29 people, in on-site restaurant and cold room facilities.
