About Star Dam Estate

Star Dam Estate offers self-catering accommodation in a quiet corner of the Dargle Valley in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands near the iconic Inhlosane Hill.

This estate offers accommodation in four luxury self-catering lodges. All units have gas heaters and are serviced daily. Each lodge has a private pier which provides access to the water.

Guests can book each lodge separately or all three together. The lodges are not connected, but it is less than 400 metres apart and guests can easily move between them. Free Wi-Fi allows guests to stay connected to the outside world as the cellphone signal in the area is poor.

A guided horse riding tour with trained horses is available on the Inhlosane farm. Mountain bike enthusiasts can rest assured that the Star Dam Estate offers numerous scenic routes. For those who love water sports there are three motorboats that can be hired for fishing purposes, and specifically angling. Guests can bring their own fishing rods and get to know the estate from a different perspective on the water.

The boats can be rented, but guests are also welcome to bring their own canoes or skis.

Family friendly: Horse riding, fly fishing, boat rides, nature walks and nearby mountain biking trails make this the perfect getaway for a family who loves the outdoors. Adults to please supervise young children at the dam.
