  • Description
  • Facilities
Enjoy the warm embrace of The Shamrock Arms, a 4 Star Guest Lodge offering good value, tranquil surroundings and wholesome food.

The lodge was runner-up in the South African Tourism 2010 Welcome Awards. Lodge category. Finalists are considered to be the cream of the crop of the tourism industry always hospitable, always professional, and always passionate about delivering service excellence.

The lodge is authentically Victorian and comfortably modern and traces its history back to 1894. Superbly situated on the Mpumalanga Highlands Meander Route, a mere two and a half hours from Johannesburg and clasped by the picturesque and historic village of Waterval Boven, gateway to the world-famous Kruger National Park, you are guaranteed a country-village ambience that will soothe your soul.

The Shamrock Arms is unquestionably an ideal stopover for both the business and leisure traveller. It is situated ‘more or less’ half way between Oliver Tambo International Airport, previously known as the Johannesburg International Airport and the Kruger National Park. This will be of particular interest to travellers, who on arrival at OR Tambo International Airport are keen on the idea of getting some mileage behind them on the first day so that the drive to the park the next day is not so daunting. All of the rooms have their own private outside entrance and en-suite bathroom.

The luxury rooms, of which there are six, have air-conditioning hot and cold,optional electric blanket, satellite TV with decoder, minibar, tea and coffee making facility and electronic safe. You have a choice of either a double bed king or queen-size or twin beds. The Duluxe room one, which has twin beds close together, has an overhead fan, heater and tea and coffee facility. The wonderful thing about the Shamrock Arms is that it is the perfect base from which to explore many places of interest and scenic beauty in the Mpumalanga Province. All of the provinces principal tourist attractions are within easy reach of the Shamrock Arms.

In and around Waterval Boven you can do: Trout /bass fishing, rock climbing and abseiling, mountain biking and hiking and horse riding. The Shamrock Arms also offers added value in that Terry, who is an accredited and registered tourist guide, is on hand to help you on any tourist related issues. A sincere and friendly welcome awaits you from your hosts Terry and Cheryl Jansen.

We spent our last night of our honeymoon at the Shamrock Arms Guest Lodge. What a wonderful choice. Amazing hosts. Lovely rooms and Waterval Bowen is worth a visit. I look forward to going back there sometime. Many thanks for going out of your way to make our stay special.


08 January 2013

It was our coldest day of all our stay in South Africa. But we got a very warm welcome, the rooms and even our beds were heated and we felt very welcome. When we had an emergency, there was no question, that we were driven to the next hospital (min. one hour drive) and our host stayed with us, until everything was set. Never in our life, we knew someone who felt so responsible for the wellbeeing of his guests. Thank you!
