We used Dawson's as a stopover on the way to the Timbavati from Johannesburg.
The location is stunning and peaceful. The staff were welcoming, and the food very good and well presented. Off the beaten track, but would go back in a heartbeat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the foot of the Nelshoogte pass in Mpumalanga, lies a spectacular home of luxury... Dawsons Game & Trout Lodge. Dawsons is a place where the sun dances across the open plains at sunrise and sunset, painting the landscape a vivid combination of fiery red, orange, copper and gold. Where large herds of Zebra, Impala, Springbok, Blesbuck, Eland and Wildebeest slowly wander the 2000ha Savannah plains, impervious to time. It is a place where dramatic mountains, waterfalls and perennial streams flow lazily from trout dam to trout dam. Surrounded by open space where you can relish the freedom of timelessness, exploration and peace. It is a place of retreat, of absolute relaxation. We offer magnificent accommodation, superb cuisine, and impeccable service ... more less
