Blissful and rejuvenating The peacefulness of the water and calmness of walking on the trails revitalizes your mind ensuring you forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. After a weekend you feel like a new person. You are so close to the real world but feel so far away that nothing bothers you. The staff are great and friendly, and the accommodation is great value.

Gorgeous spit in every way We had FOUR boxes to tick when choosing a spot for a few days away. Not too far from PTA. Fishing. Hiking. a place that allowed dogs. Kingfisher ticked all these boxes and more. The grounds a beautifully kept. The units are very basic in terms of interiors but perfect considering the type of spot it is and fact dogs and kids are allowed. There was a well stocked little shop. A restaurant and bar on site. The hike to the waterfall was lovely and we loved the gorgeous waterfall. The staff were amazing and we felt like they were friends by the time we left.

Hospitality with a difference! Peace and tranquillity! We had such a lovely stay at The Kingfisher Country Cottage & Trout Lodge, on arrival we were greeted by Gary & Cat on arrival. We received a complimentary glass of sherry and given a tour of the grounds. We only stayed for a, but we had an amazing time. We had a delicious breakfast the following morning. Compliments to Cat and staff for providing us with such amazing food. Gary, thanks for the tip on swimming at the waterfall. Many thanks to Gary and Cat for their hospitality and friendly chats. Would definitely recommend The Kingfisher Country Cottage & Trout Lodge to fellow travellers! We will visit soon again.

This is an absolute gem of a place. We went camping and the kids loved playing outside in the play area. The waterfall is a must visit. Remember to take your phone for spectacular photo's.

The owners and management of the lodge are wonderful, kind hearted people. Thank you for coming out to assist us at night with a broken down vehicle, you are proof that there are still good people out there👏 The lodge is well maintained, peaceful and absolutely beautiful...so tranquil and with good hospitality.. nothing more is needed 🙂 Thank you Hennie, Gary, and the rest of the team! Im missing some names, my apologies.. but also to the young friendly lad who made sure we settled in well!

Ons het einde Februarie 2023 vir n naweek daar gekamp met ons tent. Dit was n wonderlike ervaring met n veruklikke mooi rustige omgewing. Alles wat mens nodig het is daar en die restaurant is uitstekend. Die personeel is almal baie vriendelik en Hennie en Michelle ( die bestuurders) gaan uit hul pad om dit aangenaam te maak. Andre is n groot aanwins tot die oord. Die sondag namiddag het daar n verwoeste donderstorm uitgebreek met bome wat ontwortel is. Gary, die eienaar, het kom aanbied dat ons liewer in een van die chalets gaan oornag as om in die tent te wees. Hulle het ons gratis die nag daar gehuisves. Baie dankie vir n wonderlike tydjie en ons kom beslis weer soontoe

We had such a great experience here again the last 10days camping!! This place is just magical and with such a charm! We once again loved every moment even with the few days bad weather we enjoyed playing games in front of the fireplace! Thank you team Kingfisher for making it so special! May you grow from strengh to strengh.. See you soon!

What a wonderful spot indeed. Came here 20odd years ago and it has lost none of its charm and beauty even as it has been developed into a more family friendly location. Gary is an amazing host and really makes his guests feel welcome in a truly relaxing atmosphere. The trout fishing dams are spectacular and we had a lot of fun learning how to fly fish. Would honestly rate this as one of the best spots we’ve ever holidayed at with the most amazing views. Chalets are clean and neat and are also very spacious for the family units. The restaurant and bar are self service with an honesty system that is very convenient. Will for sure be coming back to this little gem tucked away in the Mpumalanga mountains. PS: best ever is that we had zero load shedding in 4 days!! What a bonus.

Take a virtual tour:

To navigate through the tour is simple – just follow the various “arrow/hotspot” prompts within the various scenes and then pan left and right around the scene in 360. Once the tour has loaded if you do not pan around yourself the “tour” has been programmed to navigate itself from scene to scene.

At the bottom of the tour there are also 5 icons – namely “panorama list, location, floorplan, contact” and the last icon on the right is if a person has virtual goggles then they can view via this method too. The “panorama list” has “thumbnails” – if a person clicks on any one of these then the tour jumps straight to that particular scene. This is incase someone wants to navigate direct to a particular scene as opposed to “walking around virtually and exploring your entire location”
