About Fish Eagle River Lodge
Fish Eagle River Lodge was named after the two breeding pairs of African Fish Eagles nesting on the banks of the Berg River, which forms one of the boundaries of this working olive and vine farm. The upmarket accommodation is set in beautifully landscape gardens with the imposing Elandskloof mountain range as a backdrop to the tranquil setting.
Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, the farm is situated in the heart of the Riebeek Valley, just outside the quaint village of Hermon and about five minutes from the restaurants and shops of Riebeek Kasteel. The historic towns of Tulbagh and Wellington are both about 20 km's away and the scenic winelands of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are easily accessible from here. We invite you to experience friendly country hospitality at its best.
Wake up to the sounds of the prolific bird life, breathe in the fresh country air and enjoy long walks on farm roads. Enjoy the lush garden, shaded veranda and sparkling swimming pool. Canoes are available to enjoy leisurely outings on the Berg River. Be amazed at the stars in the clear night sky and remember the haunting call of the Fish Eagle for a long time to come.
Fish Eagle River Lodge offers both B&B and self-catering on the banks of the river.
