Dunkeld Country Estate is a luxury trout-and-game lodge.  Situated in the highly sought after town of Dullstroom, the area boasts the spectacular Panorama Route offering magnificent views of remarkable landscapes featuring many breathtaking highlights, including Blyde River Canyon, Echo Caves and Pilgrims Rest.

Dunkeld Country Estate boasts many well-stocked dams filled with Brown, Rainbow and Golden Trout, offering fly-fishermen enthusiasts the enjoyment of quality angling time in pursuit of that perfect catch. The heritage of Dunkeld Country Estate has been preserved with the conversion of the old farmhouse into a restaurant, which was more than a hundred year old.

The combination of untouched beauty, high standards, true South African hospitality, excellent personal service and professional staff members, makes Dunkeld Country Estate a truly remarkable holiday destination for the whole family.
