About us

Established on a 300 hectare farm on the source of a mountain stream with spectacular views, Mountain Fly Fishing offers you an ideal opportunity of getting away from the stress of everyday life and unwinding in a relaxed and beautiful environment.

Known as The Land of Silver Mists,  the beautiful Magoebaskloof / Haenertsburg area of the Limpopo Province is one of the country's best kept secrets. Nestled against the Wolkberg Mountain Range, the area is filled with indigenous and cultivated forests, grasslands and crystal clear mountain streams.
Our comfortable and unique Magoebaskloof Accommodation establishment offers guests five fully-stocked trout fly-fishing dams on our privately owned property. Our Magoebaskloof accommodation is neat and cozy, overlooking the serene trout waters.
The Magoebaskloof area has a long association with trout with the first fish being introduced into the Broederstroom River in 1904. For over 90 years brown trout, and later rainbow trout, have thrived in the ideal temperatures of this northern most part of the Drakensberg Mountain Range.
Our facilities are ideal for hiking, mountain biking, quad biking and bird watching, which makes us ideal for a family or group breakaway in the beautiful Magoebaskloof Mountains.
