More than 20 years ago, an adventurous traveller was driving along Weltevreden Road. As fate would have it he took the wrong turn and was greeted by the beauty of the Krantz waterfall and a pine tree jungle. The adventurous traveller had found his haven. Four months later, Calverton Estate was opened, so that others might find the serenity that he did.
Calverton Estate offers two luxury guest lodges, three waterfalls and many fishing spots along the river, for the passionate fly fisherman. The beauty of the natural surroundings, coupled with the modern comforts of the accommodation, makes Calverton Estate a memorable destination.
Situated on the edge of the Drakensburg escarpment just south of Lydenburg in the Mpumalanga province, it is a comfortable 4 hour drive from Johannesburg.
Be serenaded by the magical call of the Olive Bush Shrike or listen to the Bokmakierie ringing home on his telephone all whilst fishing your way up the captivating river. Just hope the laughing dove is not around!
For those who prefer a simple walk or a more intensive hike through the picturesque, unique and simple beauty of nature, you will not be disappointed. There are a number of walking paths and routes throughout the Estate with an abundance of bird life.
The Escarpment is a must see for all guests that would appreciate the spectacular views down towards the Lowveld.
Enjoy your elevenses whilst relaxing on the veranda and watch your fur babies (yes they are also welcome and at no extra charge!) romp around on the extensive lawns.
