Fully equipped self-catering ( self contained ) at Kei River Mouth

The Thatches units

The Thatches on the beautiful rugged Wild Coast of South Africa offers self-catering accommodation for those keen to explore the Kei Mouth area in the Eastern Cape. This resort is within walking distance of golden beaches, a pristine estuary and a small town.

Guests are accommodated in 13 spacious thatched cabanas – designed for 2, 4 or 6 guests, each with bathroom and TV. Their deluxe option offers two bedrooms, each en suite, with airconditioning. The kitchen in each cabana is well-equipped for self-catering purposes, plus a private braai area, and the cabanas are serviced six days per week, with Sunday cleaning available on request. The Thatches offers a pool and lapa area where you can meet other guests.

Among locals the Kei River area is known as the door to the “Old Transkei”. The Kei Mouth area is renowned among birdwatchers for the variety of bird species, as well as butterflies and moths. Here you can fish in the river or in the sea, swim in the sea or in the river, surf, take long walks on the beach, or take an inland tour up the Kei River on the Thatches’ pleasure barge “The Fish Eagle”. You will be amazed by the biodiversity of the Wild Coast and the inland area.

If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, there is a nearby country club offering a 13-hole golf-course, tennis, snooker, bowling rink and tennis court, while companies in the Kei Mouth village offer horse-riding, paint-ball and abseiling.
