Gunyatoo Trout Farm & Lodge is the perfect country getaway presenting a charming fly-fishing, birding and nature retreat. Nestled in the picturesque, and malaria-free Rhenosterhoek valley between Lydenburg and Sabie the guest lodge is ideally positioned for access to most tourist attractions that Mpumalanga has to offer, including Kruger National Park, Pilgrims Rest, Sudwala Caves & the Panorama Route.
The thatch & stone lodge offers luxurious, yet affordable accommodation. The several refurbished suites, all have beautiful views of the surrounding pine forests. The rooms, all en-suite, have their own private patio.
For those requiring self-catering, a fully equipped four-sleeper family cottage is available, as well a six sleeper log cabin, and honeymoon studio.
ECO Fisherman’s Cottage – sleeps 8 and offers a more rustic self-catering option. It is secluded at the edge of property, at the two trout dams & raceways, and is ideal for group fishing trips. Private fly fishing lessons and group clinics can be arranged on site.
In the evenings one can enjoy a drink at the bar, have a game of pool or darts and then unwind in the sauna or swimming pool. Of course should it be chilly one can warm up around roaring log fires in the lounge.
For the sedentary tourist, relaxing on the wooden decked patio watching the abundant birdlife is a must. Not only is there a huge variety of the more common bird species, but a number of globally and nationally threatened species also occur in the area.
For those in need of exercise, farm trails and walks to the nearby waterfalls & caves are just as enjoyable but should you require additional stimulation: - Clay-pigeon shooting can be organized on site. Arrangements can be made for Quad Bike tours, horse riding, gorge-swinging, rafting & many more activities.
NB: Access to Gunyatoo via the R37 with vehicles other than 4X4 is not generally recommended due to periodic road damage from rainfall - check road condition with guest lodge staff before travel.
