Thali Thali – West Coast
Thali Thali is a 1,460 hectare Cape West Coast game and fynbos reserve situated just off the R27 near Langebaan, less than 1 hours drive from Cape Town, bordering the West Coast National Park. The Cape West Coast is intoxicating and the Langebaan area with its beautiful lagoon has a charm that keeps people coming back year after year.
Thali Thali was an old cattle farm when bought a few years ago and after relocating more than 250 mammals it is now home to an abundance of wildlife species such as : Eland, Oryx, Red Hartebees, Black Wildebees, Giraffe, Kudu, Bontebok, Springbok and Burchell’s Zebra to name a few.
Thali Thali is home to a long list of bird species within its boundaries. The South African national bird, the blue crane, is one of the species that feature not only on the five-cent coin, but also here. If you are lucky enough to see these regal birds, do not disturb them, especially if they are in breeding.
The West Coast is the southernmost point for the Palaearctic migratory birds from the northern Europe and Siberia, so one can see birds most other people just dream of.
Thali Thali is just a stone-throw away from a number of listed Important Bird Areas(IBAs), such as the West Coast National Park(Geelbek), the Saldanha Islands, Dassen Island, the Lower Berg River Wetlands and Verlorenvlei.
We offer a choice of three open game viewing vehicles with different capacities to adapt to the needs of our guests.
