DESCRIPTION:

Oxbow Country Estate has established itself in Gauteng as a highly sought-after wedding and special events venue, as well as a trout fly fishing haven. Oxbow Country Estate, set in the foothills of the Magaliesberg range, near Bronkhorstspruit Dam, is home to a unique river system with remarkable geographical phenomena known as oxbows.

Nurtured and improved in later years, these waters have now become a life source and haven to over 130 recorded species of birdlife, including abundant insect and aquatic species.

The waterways and wetlands are home to a variety of water fowl including the elusive Purple gallinule, Red-knobbed coots, Moorhens, Black crakes and the enchanting and feisty Little Grebes - otherwise known as Dabchicks. Giant, Pied, Half-collared and the magnificent Malachite Kingfishers can be seen hovering and diving on all the dams, and on a good day you might even be lucky enough to spot our visiting Fish Eagle or hear his telltale cry.

The gardens, lovingly landscaped over the years, further enhance the tranquillity you will experience when visiting this estate in the country.
