About Valley of The Rainbow

Valley of The Rainbow is located in a private nature reserve in a secluded valley surrounded by mountains, approximately 20 km from Dullstroom and only two hours’ drive from Johannesburg. The estate is in a malaria and bilharzia-free area, with a mild climate, and guests can experience fly-fishing in rivers and lakes surrounded by indigenous forests.

The Manor House offers five luxurious bedrooms, each with own sitting area and en-suite bathroom. Guests can relax in the lounge with bar, furnished with exquisite furniture. The Country House is decorated in a classic country style and offers five en-suite bedrooms opening onto a veranda, while the Tent Chalets are permanently fixed on wooden decks and situated in an indigenous forest overlooking one of the lakes in the valley. Each tent provides sleeping for up to four guests and also features an en-suite bathroom.

Guests can participate in organized outdoor activities, including fly-fishing in the river and lakes for the elusive rainbow and brown trout, shooting, horse riding and canoeing. Non-fishing guests will appreciate the tranquility and natural beauty of the setting. The mountains invite guests to go wandering along the walking trails on which one can expect to find a variety of small game including Grey duiker, Steenbuck, Grey reebok and vervet monkey, over 200 species of birds, and an abundance of wild flowers and plants.
