About Carryblaire River Retreat
Only an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and nestling on the banks of the Vaal River near Parys, Carryblaire River Retreat embodies peace, tranquility and a sense of oneness with nature. With its own natural island and being a bird sanctuary, the views offered at Carryblaire are breathtaking.The yellow-fish that leap through the water are considered to rival trout in their ability to entice fishermen in a challenge of wits, while the calls of the nesting Fish eagles remind us of their superiority in the air. Drink in the beauty and serenity around you, and let us and nature do the rest. Carryblaire River Retreat can accommodate up to 24 people in 10 double rooms. Accommodation options include dinner and breakfast or just breakfast. Meals consist of healthy and wholesome farm-style cooking, served in the dining room in the main lodge with stunning views overlooking the river.
