About Cheerio Trout Fishing and Holiday Resort

We offer trout fishing in well-stocked dams on the property and at an owned property, On The Letaba, a 20-minute drive away. There is a swimming pool and a tennis court for guests; always something to do. Walks and mountain biking in gardens and forests provide additional recreation and exercise.

Our self-catering chalets accommodate two, four or six people. All amenities are provided and the chalets are serviced daily. Enjoy the serenity of the mountains from your private accommodation nestled among beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. This is the ideal stopover toward Kruger National Park and other private game parks.

Tourism Magoebaskloof has established mountain bike routes, which could also be used for hiking, between the various tourism establishments in the area (accommodation, tea gardens etcetera. Visitors to the area will be able to pick up a route from any participating establishment or a hub such as Cheerio Gardens/ Stanford Lake College. The establishment owners will share the responsibility for maintaining routes and ensuring that signage is visible and appropriate. Maps of the routes will also be available. The trails consist of some single track through forests and/or open farm land, existing farm roads and paths, fire boundaries and public country sand roads. To create the optimum linkage, the routes also traverse commercial timber growers’ properties.

Presently there are 4 trails, but these will be added to on a regular and planned basis. The current routes are as follows: Stanford Lake/ Ebenezer Dam: This 5.3 km route is suitable for families with young children. It follows the edge of Stanford Lake and Ebenezer Dam on well used roads and is fairly flat. It can be extended by 3km by following the road along Ebenezer dam further and returning the same way. It can be accessed from Stanford Lake Lodge.

Cheerio/Sequoia: This 5 km route is suitable for families. It passes through the pine plantations, avo orchards and the beautiful gardens of Cheerio and Sequoia along grass paths and roads. The climb to the top of the hill is made worth the effort by the spectacular views of the Wolkberg and Cheerio Valley. It can be accessed from Cheerio Trout Fishing and Holiday Resort, Sequoia and Cheerio Gardens.

Magoebaskloof Adventures: This 10km route is for very experienced mountain bikers. 5 km of technical single track hug the contours of the Letaba Gorge through riverine forest. A steep climb gives spectacular views of Georges Valley before a steep descent back to the start. It can be accessed from Magoebaskloof Adventures.

Cheerio/ Sequoia/Bramasole/ Stanford Lake College: This 25 km route is suitable for experienced riders and weekend warriors who want to test their strength and stamina. It follows roads through plantations, gardens and natural forest, passed secluded dams and babbling streams. The climbs are steep and long but the views from the top over the Ebenezer dam towards the Wolkberg make it all worthwhile. It can be accessed from Cheerio Gardens, Cheerio Trout Lodge, Sequoia, Bramasole, Zwakala and Magoebaskloof Hotel.

Family friendly: Beautiful farm; playground for little ones; tennis court; games room with table tennis and darts; mountain bike trails, swimming pool, soccer field for children

                                  The resort is well situated for easy access to Haenertsburg and Magoebaskloof. The owners Alf & Carol and the manageress, Jady, are friendly & helpful. Our family stayed in Forrest Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The bed linen is good quality & the mattresses are good. Full marks for the King size bed in the main room as most establishments only have a double or Queen size bed. The electric blankets on the beds were also most appreciated. The cottage was spacious enough for our family and the deck is a generous size and we ate most of our meals there. Our only complaints...

                                  This was our second visit to Cheerio. We stayed in the Forrest cottage with our 2 toddlers and had a fantastic time! Strolls through the luscious forest, expecting fairies to jump out at any moment, fishing, playing on the jungle gym and running around on the lawns - all wonderful memories. Also loved the breathtaking view from the main bedroom - felt like we could stay forever. Will definitely go back. Visited Debengeni waterfall which was beyond amazing, couldn't believe that there is such a stunning landmark in our country and no one has ever told me about it!

                                  All the facilities necessary to have a great stay away from home, plus a beautiful view and fresh mountain air.

                                  Loved the beautiful Forrest cottage, the king size bed with a royal view of the woods. The gardens are breathtaking and we had a lovely time strolling around with our little kids, having picnics and playing in little streams. They also enjoyed the jungle gym and swimming pool and we enjoyed the tennis court. Kitchen very well equipped. Enjoyed evenings by the fireplace. The gravel road was also well looked after, so it was a pleasure driving in and out to visit other places in the area. Will definitely be back.
