About Forellenhof

On the Mpumalanga Highveld bordering Kwa Zulu Natal, nestled between mountains and wetlands, lies Forellenhof Guest Farm.

Forellenhof has a four star grading and is one of those unique accommodation establishments that has that farm feel, yet it brings out the beauty of the country and the spender of its natural gifts. The ambiance that has been created by the owners offers you rest and tranquility in luxury romantic accommodation in two self-catering cottages and a guesthouse. Forellenhof sleeps a maximum of 16 guests.

The Guest Farm is ideally situated for a stopover from- and to Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Kruger National Park and Swaziland. It is a mere 3 hour drive from Pretoria and Johannesburg.
