A WEST COAST TREAT
One needn’t venture far out of Cape Town for a taste of the authentic African safari experience. Thali Thali Game Lodge, situated in Langebaan, the jewel of the West Coast, is just over an hour’s drive from the Mother City and offers an affordable, laid-back getaway, complete with luxurious en-suite glamping tents and self-catering accommodation options, game drives, nature trails, birdwatching, and even a chance to try your hand at archery. This stunning 1,460-ha game and fynbos reserve is home to a wide variety of free-roaming animals, including kudu, oryx, giraffe, springbok, zebra, ostrich and emu, and is teeming with birdlife amongst the indigenous Strandveld, Renosterveld and Weskus Savannah vegetation. The reserve and activities are also open to day visitors, so even if you’re headed elsewhere, be sure to make this a stop on your itinerary. Immersing yourself in nature has never been easier.
