About Blaauwbosch Trout Inn

Blaauwbosch Trout Inn is situated just outside Waterval Boven on the edge of the Highveld. The hills and grassland give you a wonderful view of the Elandsvalley. A bounty of bird life, bushbuck, reedbuck, common duiker, aardwolf, aardvark, bushpig, jackal, porcupine, serval, wildcat, mongoose and vervet monkeys give you a great feel of the outdoors. Amazing ancient stone ruins are spread amongst the hills, which date back thousands of years.
