About Rainbow Lodge
Rainbow Lodge is a beautiful small farm in the heart of Mpumalanga only about 200km to 250km from Gauteng. Rainbow Lodge is an ideal getaway from the mad rush of the city for a day a weekend or for an extended period to recharge the batteries and get back to the real meaning of life.
The Lodge is also ideally located for someone exploring the area. We are within easy reach of most of Mpumalanga tourist attractions. We are situated near the very interesting small country town of Dullstroom which most fly fisherman will know. The Lodge has three dams of which two are well stocked with Rainbow Trout. There is also Black Bass in the dams.
