Crystal Waters is a unique fly-fishing hide-away for nature lovers -- it offers the winning combination of luxury self-catering accommodation and being one with nature in a completely safe environment. The farm 1000 hectare farm is situated in the mountains of the Lowveld Escarpment near Dullstroom and Lydenburg -- the Trout Mecca of Mpumalanga, and on the route the Kruger National park

Guests will find themselves surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, natural fountains and trout dams and can choose between beautiful private chalets (sleeps 4 and 6 persons – see separate web page) and this thatched De Berg Lodge (sleeps 10) - all with dedicated well stocked dams.

Fly fishermen can test their skills against healthy rainbows, browns, reds or golden trout in at least 12 of the 17 dams on the farm. Dams are regularly stocked. Bird lovers can relish the abundance of rare bird species whilst hikers may encounter Blesbuck and smaller antelope such as the red and grey Ribbok along. This is indeed a superb facility and you will experience a wonderful and tranquil stay in a beautiful environment.

Other activities include mountain biking, eco quad rides (bring own bikes and quads)…and the kids will love this working farm!
