About Fish Eagle River Lodge

Fish Eagle River Lodge was named after the two breeding pairs of African fish eagles nesting on the banks of the Berg River which forms one of the boundaries of this working olive and vine farm.

The upmarket accommodation is set in beautifully landscape gardens with the imposing Elandskloof mountain range as a backdrop to the tranquil setting. Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, the farm is situated in the heart of the Riebeek Valley, just outside the quaint village of Hermon and about five minutes from the restaurants and shops of Riebeek Kasteel.

The historic towns of Tulbagh and Wellington are both about 20 km away and the scenic winelands of Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch are also easily accessible.

The Mapstones were extremely welcoming and friendly. We were warmly welcomed. The lodge is perfect as a basic accommodation stopover and the rooms have lovely balconies that look out over the fields and mountains in the distance. There is one major negative. Their is zero sound insulation between the rooms. We could hear every word the couple next door were saying. This is not an exaggeration and they were talking in normal voices - no yelling. I guess it would have been the same for them about us. Until that is fixed I would not return.

We really enjoyed our stay at Fish Eagle Lodge, the hosts Kay and Steve were fantastic and very welcoming. The farm is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. There are braai facilities for those choosing the B&B option with crockery, wood and blitz available at R15 p.p (super convenient!).Each morning a full English breakfast is served outside.We loved the fact that it was so central and only a 10 minute drive to the town of Riebeek Kasteel. A great place to stay for the Olive festival weekend! Highly recommended!
