We love dullstroom for the fishing and just to get away from the city. People are super friendly and we love staying at stonecutters but there are other lovely places too. Don’t miss the local brewery if you go! Restaurants here are pretty good too.

This place is far from dull as it's name suggests. We had an awesome family holiday here and I was able to teach my son how to catch fish. Wonderful place to visit, something for the whole family.
