Every trout fisherman owes it to himself to fish the crystal-clear streams and pools of the Drakensberg, one of Africa's most impressive mountain ranges, at least once. And what better place to cast your line than from Mount Anderson, a pristine 8000-hectare mountain reserve tucked away on the northern Escarpment. Giving rise to three major rivers, making it a serious catchment area for the nearby Kruger, Mount Anderson is not only a haven for piscine species, but mountain zebra, wildebeest, ostrich, baboons and various antelope species graze on its grass- and flower-carpeted slopes, while some 200 bird species wheel overhead. And unlike the busier reserves near the Kruger, Mount Anderson offers the kind of serenity that comes with real space, with every guest enjoying an effective 1000 hectares to themselves!
Furnished in the English country manor style, the ranch is a comfortable perch from which to observe the tiered trout ponds into which mountain streams empty, and the soothing sound of running water is ever present. It's a boon for bird lover, mountain biker, horse rider and hiker alike, but should the natural beauty overwhelm, Dullstroom's boutique restaurants and charming shops lie under two hours way.
