About Gox Hill Trout Lodge

Escape the maddening crowd and big city lights. Come and catch your breath, relax and embrace the beautiful outdoors at Goxhill Trout Lodge. Set on a productive working farm just outside Himeville in the spectacular Southern Drakensberg, Goxhill Trout Lodge offers comfortable self-catering accommodation. With two large trout dams on the farm, guests also have access to excellent trout fishing and other fun water-based activities.

The lodge is a historic farm with a 100 year old Gracious Lady. The Kingfisher and Fish Eagle cottages are available as limited self-catering units in a beautiful garden, and we also have a number of beautiful campsites with upmarket facilities. Self-catering facilities include a microwave oven, fridge and freezer, cutlery, crockery, kitchen utensils, and braai facilities. All children welcome. Access to the Internet is available and laundry service are available on request.

Goxhill boasts the largest lake in the Underberg area. The Polela River which runs through the lake provides a natural breeding environment for trout. Fishermen have the opportunity of pitting their skills against wild trout, providing an exciting challenge. In addition, there is a second smaller dam on the farm managed by the Underberg Himeville Trout Fishing Club.

I loved our stay at Gox Hill. Victor was very accommodating. Loved being on the farm. The views of the Berg and dam are amazing.

We had originally planned to camp at Goxhill but, because of the amount of rain we’d had, we chose to change to a cottage. And so we found ourselves in the cosy comfort of Kingfisher cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and was clean and tidy. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower had plenty of hot water. Viktor was an excellent host, and made sure we had everything we needed. We made a rather feeble attempt to fish, but just bring down at the dam was soul-restoring. We will definitely be back!

The grass in camping area was very very long 15 to 20 cm. The area is beautiful was surprised how few birds were on the dam. I think k the cottages would be a better option.

We had two fantastic days at Gox hill. The campsite is beautiful. If peace and quiet is what you are looking for, look no further. A visit to the diary was definitely the highlight of our stay. Highly recommend!

We were not warned to bring drinking water and as there had been so much rain the water in the house was brown! This is a working dairy farm so quests must be prepared to be disturbed by farm activities and calling calves etc. The farm owner Rick was most helpful, sorting out a fishing boat for our use and providing assistance when required by our aged group.
