A Mountain View Country Estate is situated on the Fochville Road and is surrounded by picturesque mountain land, the result of a meteorite the size of Table Mountain that collided with Earth some 2020 million years ago, creating this wonder of nature, the Vredefort Dome.  

This is also fly-fishing territory, with the mighty Vaal coursing through the 54-hectare establishment. The region is rich in bird and insect life, so bring your binoculars - you are bound to see and hear a Fish eagle.   Enjoy the beauty of nature in a farming environment.

Come and relax in a peaceful country atmosphere at A Mountain View Country Estate. Facilities include nine elegantly furnished rooms, each with an en-suite shower and basin. Six rooms contain twin three-quarter beds and three rooms contain double beds.
