About Fish Eagle Log Cabin

Fish Eagle four rooms, eight-sleeper self-catering log cabin on the banks of the Vaal River is situated in the Vredefort Dome World Heritage area, which is recognised globally as one of the nine World Heritage Sites in South Africa. This is where the largest meteorite struck the Earth to form a crater no less than 300 km in diameter approximately 2 000 million years ago.

The unit is situated on the banks of the Vaal River which makes fishing extremely popular. There is no passing traffic or noise; the only sound you are likely to hear will be the sound of the river as it cobbles over the rocks or the distinctive cry of the fish eagle. The Vredefort Dome area also offers a splendid stargazing opportunities.

An interesting fact is that the cabin was actually built around the dual stone fireplace which serves both the lounge and main bedroom. There are two bedrooms with double beds and one room has an en-suite bathroom. There are two private sleeping areas with twin beds located upstairs.

The house is situated in a totally eco-friendly environment as minimal disruption has been done to the environment and sustainable power is generated by way of solar and gas. This means that there are no ESKOM poles or cables to be found on this property. Lighting in the unit consists of 12 volt solar-powered LED globes strategically placed for sufficiency whilst still maintaining the rustic ambience. Gas fuels the geyser as well as the fridge and stove.

I left Fish Eagle feeling refreshed and uplifted.  The building is charming and clean, we had everything we needed and really enjoyed the dual aspect fireplace.  The booking was easy and communication quick and comprehensive.  Thank you for a fabulous last few days of my holiday.  I will especially be recommending Fish Eagle to those friends of mine who like to fish (I don't) and I hope to be back and stay longer next time.

It was absolutely wonderful, peaceful and relaxing. Since there is no power and the USB charger was to weak to charge the smart phones it was fabulous to not hear a phone for a whole weekend! We really enjoyed our stay and since we are a loud bunch sometimes (with the kids) this was the perfect place for we couldn't bother our neighbors!We would definitely be back!
