When the conditions are right, the Southern Drakensberg mountains are a fly-fisher's dream. The clean, cold mounatin streams and dams ensure ideal conditions for yellowfish and trout. The region still offers the possibility of undiscovered fishing sites, with fish that are exceptional in size and condition, and some of the country's best sight-fishing locations for Smallmouth and Largemouth Yellowfish as well as Rainbow Trout.
During winter time we often have snow on the farm and we offer our guests the opportunity to spend some time in a winter wonderland of snow. Kinmel Guest Farm is perfectly situated to stay over on your way, or use as a base for day visits to Tiffindell ski resort.
