With great expectations did we book into Dunkeld Country Estate only to be a little more disappointed after every day spent there. On arrival we were told about all the different activities and were encouraged to book these well in advance. After calling it a day on Friday evening we realized that our unit could not be locked as the... More

We where invited by friends to join them for a four night stay at Dunkeld Estate. We enjoyed every minute. The chalet was very spacious and the only thing I would have liked was a toilet in the bathroom of the second bedroom. The views were spectacular. We received a warm welcome and the staff were very friendly. This is... More

We stayed in a villa in the Equestrian Estate at Dunkeld that is on a hillside with expansive views of the cattle ranch and estate. The property was elegant, modern and well maintained. The one issue is that it had inadequate heating provision for colder days in winter months. The nearby equestrian centre had a pleasant clubhouse that served breakfast,... More

We love the Dunkeld estate for all the activities to keep a family busy. We were pleasantly surprised to see the addition of a tennis court and zip lining since our last visit. Pony rides are a must, as is the standard trout fishing, bike riding, running and indoor (kiddies) pool and games centre. The units are OK but not... More

We enjoyed the weekend thoroughly, especially the horseback riding and watching real game animals from our from stoep or the upstairs bedroom. All staff are super-friendly and there are plenty of activities to keep one busy, with fly-fishing and horse riding being the main ones.

My girlfriend and I visited Dunkeld estates this August and stayed at the hotel. What a fantastic experience, we fished (fish were a bit small but still fun to catch) rode horses and ate at the restaurant and the food was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we are going back in September! Good job Dunkeld!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dunkeld Country Estate is a beautiful trout-and-game resort situated on over 1000 hectares only 3.7Kms from the popular village of Dullstroom. The area, renowned for its sub-alpine climate, high altitude and fly fishing waters, is favoured by city dwellers wanting to relax in the country and enjoy fresh air and panoramic views only 2.5 Hours from Johannesburg. The Resort consists of a central Lodge which offers 13 spacious Hotel rooms dotted around a fishing dam and near the main restaurant/ reception area. Our self-catering accommodation consists of 4 private self contained family suites and an additional 20 self-contained one bedroom chalets. Most of our rooms have an open fireplace to keep warm on those cold, and most popular, misty days. The heritage of the estate has been preserved with the conversion of the old farmhouse into a restaurant, which is more than a hundred years old. Our new reception, lounge and jazz bar was opened in August 2014 and compliments our banqueting facilities which cater to weddings, functions and conferences. We have a stone chapel, tea garden and can cater to your every need. Dunkeld is well known for its forest weddings. The resort boasts many well-stocked dams filled with Brown, Rainbow and Golden Trout, offering fly-fishing enthusiasts from novice to experienced the enjoyment of quality angling time in pursuit of that perfect catch. We are also passionate about introducing children to the art of fly fishing and one of our on-site guides holds a demo and teaching session every weekend. The estate also offers a host of family and child orientated activities. Our horse out rides are very popular as is our kiddies activity program. We are introducing new and fun activities every week. The Estate is located on the famous Panorama Route which takes visitors from Dullstroom all the way through remarkable landscapes to the Blyde River Canyon, Echo Caves and Pilgrims Rest. Dunkeld is also the perfect rest stop on the way to the Kruger National Park and the private reserves located in the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Reserves. ... more   less
