About Blaauwbosch Trout Inn

Blaauwbosch Trout Inn is situated just outside Waterval Boven on the edge of the Highveld. The hills and grassland give you a wonderful view of the Elandsvalley. A bounty of bird life, bushbuck, reedbuck, common duiker, aardwolf, aardvark, bushpig, jackal, porcupine, serval, wildcat, mongoose and vervet monkeys give you a great feel of the outdoors. Amazing ancient stone ruins are spread amongst the hills, which date back thousands of years.

Self Catering Accommodation

Eagle Cabin
Situated on the shore of the trout dam, the Eagle cabin sleeps 10 people, two in each of the two bedrooms, with a loft area providing sleeping space for six more guests. Fully equipped, with all linen and towels supplied, it also features its own braai area, fireplace, a library and two bathrooms. There is also place to build a bonfire. No TV.

Drongo Chalet
Also facing a dam but a quiet and secluded location from the rest of the accommodation, the Drongo Chalet is the ideal retreat for two people or even for single accommodation. It has its own shower and all linen and towels are supplied. Rounding off the retreat is a fireplace, braai area and deck over the dam. No TV.
