The first thing that captivated me about Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa is the majestic setting. The trout dams reflecting the surrounding Swartkops mountain makes you feel like you are sitting somewhere in Natal Midlands or Dullstroom. The rooms are luxurious and spacious and I will definately come back in summer to test out the outdoor shower. Food was delightful and really tasty. The service is up and down but generally very good. My highlight and the reason that I originally went to Kloofzicht, was the fly fishing. There are a total of 5 dams of which two are well stocked with Rainbow trout and two have bass & carp. The trout range from pan size (450g) to 2.5 kg. in a fly fishing competition a fly fisher caught a 4.1 kg trout so there are some trophy fish around. The main (and biggest) dam is restricted for club members and residents. I managed to land some bass and a few trout, the carp continue to evade me (there are some huge specimens in the dams). For the more experienced fly fishers there is small stream fishing for large and small scale yellow fish in the crocodile river (runs through the property). All in all this gem which is hidden in the Cradle of Mankind World Heritage site is definately worth a visit.
