About Valley of The Rainbow

Valley of The Rainbow is located in a private nature reserve in a secluded valley surrounded by mountains, approximately 20 km from Dullstroom and only two hours’ drive from Johannesburg. 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.

                                      The well maintained dams and excellent condition of the fish

                                      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.

                                      The scenery surrounding Valley of the Rainbow was truly special and breathtaking. Marjie and Shaun made us feel so welcome during our stay. It was freezing cold when we checked in but when we got to our room, found that the electric blankets had even been switched on for our comfort. The hospitality we received while watching the rugby in the manor house was bar none!!

                                      Amazing setting with absolute beauty surrounding it all. Defnitely a place to visit.
