About Four Flies Nature Farm
In the mountainous escarpment at the edge of the beautiful Mpumalanga high veld, hidden in the heart of the mist belt, lies the peaceful nature farm Four Flies. Situated between Machadodorp and Carolina, a mere 2½ hours from Pretoria and Johannesburg, it is the ideal break away from the stress and strain of city life. This quiet farm is characterized by rolling grass fields and splendid views of the surrounding mountains.
A small stream meanders through the farm and often reed buck can be seen grazing in the vlei. The sight and sound of eagle, fish eagle, blue crane and many other bird species will delight the privileged guest. Three well stocked trout dams offer the opportunity to the dedicated fly fisherman to relax in the tranquil countryside.
Dragon Fly is a comfortable-luxury self-catering guest house that easily accommodates ten to twelve people. It features two large bedrooms with double beds and a smaller room with two single beds. A very spacious loft has a double bed and two single beds. Linen is provided and feathered duvets and comforters make for luxurious comfort. There are two bathrooms, one with a lovely deep bath and the other with a large shower. Bath towels are provided.
A large lounge/living area has a Jet Master and comfortable seating for leisurely hours with family and friends. The kitchen is fully equipped with hob and oven, microwave and fridge/freezer combination. Braais can be held in a built-in braai on the large covered veranda, whilst enjoying exquisite views on the faraway mountains.
The house is a mere 150m walk through a blue gum stand to the three dams.
