About Aqua Terra Guest House

Aqua Terra means 'water and earth' in Latin, this is clearly portrayed as the Sterkspruit River flows along the outskirts of this one hectare property, amidst shady willow trees and rolling lawns. The relaxed nature lover can enjoy their coffee in the lapa, looking at the sunrise over the Long Tom Pass, or the busy adventurer can have a mountain bike ride in Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve.


Rooms 1, 2 & 3:
We offer three spacious en-suite rooms with 100% cotton bedding and towels, television and a bar fridge.

Rooms 4 & 5:
For more affordable accommodation we have two guest rooms that share a bathroom, but still have 100% cotton linen, towels, TV and a communal tea / coffee area.

Room 6:
The family / group room can accommodate up to five guests in three bedrooms with a lounge and TV, fridge with a coffee / tea area and bathroom featuring a bath and shower.

All accommodation is serviced daily.

Breakfast & Dining

Guests have the option of breakfast, lunch box and dinner on request.

Additional Facilities

Enjoy the big garden and river frontage on the outskirts of town but we are still only five minutes drive from the town centre.

Lydenburg is heaven on earth for the nature lovers and outdoor junkies among us and an absolute must-see on any visit to Mpumalanga. Besides the Sterkspruit and Dorps River, the Doringbergspruit and the Klipgatspruit Rivers also grace the area, making Lydenburg one of the top fly-fishing destinations in South Africa.

There are challenging 4x4 routes and hiking trails aplenty to keep avid adventurers happy and its superb location makes it the ideal point from which to explore the province's many other wonderful tourist attractions, including the picturesque Panorama Route (boasting the unmatched beauty of the Blyde River Canyon and God's Window) and the world famous Kruger National Park, Africa's premier game viewing experience. We do mountain bike trips in Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve and Mankele (near the Sudwala Caves).

Come and enjoy local South African hospitality.
