                                  I loved my breakaway to Thobeka's. It is quite and serene with clean convenient facilities. The hosts went out of their way to make my stay unforgettable. They offer a variety of excursions. The tour guides (keeping it in the family) are very knowledgeable about the area, it's plants and the activities.

                                  The location of Thobeka is perfect for an easy stop-over to Mozambique. They have lovely communal facilities and our kids really enjoyed the wooden walkways and rustic accommodation. The hosts were extremely friendly and the whole place has a wonderful vacation vibe. I would definitely recommend it to a group (or individuals) looking for a comfortable stop.

                                  We had a lovely stay here, the owners are very friendly and helpful. And it is situated nicely between the mouth, border and shops.
