The Trout Pod

  • 4 guests
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms

With the meandering Olifants River just a few steps away, this modern off-grid cottage is the ultimate fly-fisher’s dream… but it’s also a wonderful hideaway for anyone who loves the wilderness. Situated on a 4 500-hectare property (protected in partnership with CapeNature) in the southern Cederberg, the two-bedroomed Trout Pod has everything you need to reconnect with nature (and disconnect from everything else). There are plenty of ravines and gorges to explore – or you could simply stay put, enjoying the fishing, unwinding in the tin-drum hot tub, swimming in the pothole dipping pool by the river, or soaking up the spectacular views from the verandah.
