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 (just off Long Tom Pass - between Lydenburg and Sabie - 40km from Nelspruit).

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 Panoroma. The thatch & stone lodge offers luxurious, yet affordable accommodation. Recently refurbished with several suites, all with beautiful views of the surrounding pine forests.

Rooms are all en-suite, have their own private patio, perfect for "feet up" early morning cuppa`s. For those requiring self-catering, a fully equipped, four sleeper, family cottage is available. The fisherman`s cottage, which sleeps up to eight, offers a more rustic self-catering option. It is secluded at the edge of property, at the trout dams & raceways, and is ideal for group fishing trips.

The farm is a full working "trout-farm", comprising of a processing area, hatchery, nursery, raceways and naturally, for the enthusiastic fly fishermantwo stocked dams. Limited stream fishing is also available for the more experienced fisherman. Private fly fishing lessons and group clinics can be arranged on site.

After a days fishing one can enjoy a drink at the bar, have a game of pool or darts 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.


The lodge is just the place for a fishing vacation or weekend getaway, but any nature lover will find themselves in a proverbial paradise. For those in need of exercise, on 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.

Sudwala Caves, Fanie Botha Hiking Trail, Kruger National Park, Panaroma Drive, and the Emnotweni Casino, are all within an hour's drive. There are also a number of golf courses within a hour's drive from Sabie, making Gunyatoo an ideal central base for a memorable golfing holiday.
