Spacious and comfortable thatch-roof chalets nestle in the breath-taking natural beauty of the rugged Wild coast. This AA Highly Recommended self-catering resort is within walking-distance from clean beaches, the beautiful estuary of the Kei River and a quaint town named after the mouth of the great river. Thatches is the ideal place for an affordable, safe and convenient beach holiday that combines the comfort of modern living with the freedom and adventure of the Wild Coast.
The famous ‘Great Kei’ pours into the warm Indian Ocean at Kei Mouth, offering an abundance of sporting and outdoor activities to suit every need. Great fishing, swimming and surfing can be found on the beautiful and un-crowded beaches, while horse-riding tours and even adventure activities are available nearby.
Thatches combines quality and affordability to make it a fantastic choice in South African beach holiday resorts. Come to Thatches, where the beach, nature and comfort meet in the forgotten paradise of the Wild Coast!
Thatches offers ten well-equipped and thought-out chalets to make your holiday comfortable. The chalets are set-up to provide a range of sleeping options;
The Family Four options have two bedrooms, with one double bed and two single beds. The Super Six chalets are larger, with two double-bunk beds in one room and a double bed in the other, making them well-suited to larger families and groups of friends. There is a one chalet which is a little more luxurious ( unit 6). With en-suite bathrooms for both bedrooms and air-conditioning it is ideal for those looking for that little extra comfort.
All Chalets are cleaned free of charge by Thatches staff six days a week, with optional Sunday cleaning available upon request. Each chalet is equipped with personal braai areas, and there is a large, thatched communal area (the Lapa) next to the pool with additional braai and barbeque facilities. Each chalet has a television - but please bring your own towels.
The Great Kei is one of the most famous rivers in South Africa. Local legend calls it the door to the ?Old Transkei?, but it is also well-known for excellent fishing and angling. Whether you are after rock, river or sea fishing, you?ll find it here.
There is also great surf around the area, and the Wild Coast is a paradise for the intrepid explorer.
The Kei Mouth is a unique location where the bird species of the Cape and Kwa-Zulu Natal overlap, so it is excellent birding territory. There is also an abundance of beautiful butterflies and moths.
You can take a ride on the pleasure barge aptly named ?The Fish Eagle? where you?ll see an amazing abundance of the Wild Coast's famous bio-diversity as you travel inland up the Great Kei.
For those less nature-inclined there is a 13 hole golf course, tennis, squash, bowling rinks and (full size) snooker table at the nearby country club.
Horse-back rides, romantic or energetic, can be organised with a professionally run horse-riding company in the Kei Mouth town.
There is even an adventure centre that offers paint-ball and abseiling for the insatiable adrenaline junkie!
Or you could just take long walks on the beach and swims in the warm Indian Ocean, followed by sun-downers at the pool, then spend the night any way you choose?
