About Valley of The Rainbow Fly Fishing Estate

Valley of The Rainbow is located in a secluded valley surrounded by mountains, only two and half hours’ drive from Johannesburg.

Note that we are not in the town of Dullstroom and directions are from Belfast or Middelburg.

Please read directions to our venue

The estate is in a malaria and bilharzia-free area, with a mild climate, and guests can experience fly-fishing in rivers and lakes surrounded by indigenous forests.

The Manor House offers five luxurious bedrooms, each with own sitting area and en-suite bathroom. Guests can relax in the lounge with bar, furnished with exquisite furniture.

The Country House is decorated in a classic country style and offers five en-suite bedrooms opening onto a veranda, while the Tent Chalets are permanently fixed on wooden decks and situated in an indigenous forest overlooking one of the lakes in the valley. Each tent provides sleeping for up to four guests and also features an en-suite bathroom.

Guests can participate in organized outdoor activities, including fly-fishing in the river and lakes for the elusive rainbow and brown trout, shooting, horse riding and canoeing. Non-fishing guests will appreciate the tranquility and natural beauty of the setting.

The mountains invite guests to go wandering along the walking trails on which one can expect to find a variety of small game including Grey duiker, Steenbuck, Grey reebok and vervet monkey, over 200 species of birds, and an abundance of wild flowers and plants.

                                      Nice to be away from the city noises.

                                      What a lovely experience. a Place I would definitely visit a few times a year. Just a note of caution to future visitors. I stayed in the Mill House Room - a museum - and it was beautifully furnished and very stylish. It is however a museum and not a practical room. The comfortable room is upstairs and the luxurious toilet/shower downstairs. This means that those midnight/early morning toilet visits become a "trek". By the time you get back to bed you are wide awake. With the wooden floors creaking it means your partner also wakes up although I suppose this can be an advantage :-)! A venue...

                                      Really a beautiful location, so tranquil and the staff were so helpful. Such a pleasant peaceful weekend where we could soak up all that nature has to offer.

                                      Road directions must be updated. Staff were very enthusiastic and professional. All fishing venues in Mpumalanga have huge problems with otters ... neither we nor any other guests caught any fish! Big effort on catering - can be hugely simplified by doing away with little starters and serving big bowls of soup (help yourself) and lots of vegetables/salads with main courses. Too much time & effort in producing too many tiny starters! Simplify catering , re-stock with fish & keep otters out.
