What an absolute gem we found here ! Beautiful tranquil surroundings - just loved the log cabin and the attention to detail amongst other things the marshmellows and sticks for the kids to braai.

We have stayed at Gunyatoo twice already and Bob & Debbie are SUCH accommodating hosts... On both occasions, we were showcasing SA off to International friends who were in SA for very short periods of time at a time and had to get as much as possible squeezed in. Gunyatoo was perfectly situated to all the major Eastern Transvaal "hotspots"...

Gunyatoo was such a wonderful surprise. You drive into the middle of nowhere and then this gorgeous oasis appears. It was exactly what we were looking for for our weekend away. It is chilled, quiet, peaceful and scenically beautiful. We stayed in the log cabin for 3 nights and the cabin had everything one would need for a 4 day...

After travelling off the beaten track for what felt like hours through timber plantations (all my fault for not sticking to the emailed directions) we arrived to be greeted by a friendly Debbie. The accommodation is beautiful (we were booked into The Studio), simple and well planned out. Gunyatoo gives you the opportunity to fly-fish, hike or enjoy the surrounding...

Gunyatoo is the perfect place if you want peace and tranquility. The owners were friendly and welcoming. No need to visit the tourist information, for they are full of advise and knowledgeable of the surrounding attractions. We stayed in a 3 bedroom loghouse with everything you might need during your stay. Debbie informed us about the 4 km of bad,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gunyatoo Trout Lodge is small Fly-fishing and Mountain biking venue situated in a mountainous forestry area 25 kms from Sabie. Gunyatoo offers both Self-catering Cottages or DBB Lodge accommodations. (Guest Lodge rates include a delectable dinner and a hearty breakfast.) The thatch & stone Lodge has recently been refurbished with several suites, all with beautiful views of the surrounding pine forests. Lodge Rooms, all en-suite, have their own private patio, perfect for "feet up" early morning cuppa's. For those requiring Self-catering, we offer 2, 4, and 6 Sleeper Cottages. All fully equipped. For those that wish to "Camp in Style" we have our ECO Fisherman's Cottage - 8 sleeper. (NO electricity - solar powered Lights) This cottage is ideal for Groups wishing for something just a little different - a more rustic self-catering option. It is secluded at the edge of property, at the trout dams & raceways, and is ideal for group fishing trips. The farm is a full working "trout-farm", comprising of a processing area, hatchery, nursery, raceways and naturally, for the enthusiastic fly fisherman-two stocked dams. Limited stream fishing is also available for the more experienced fisherman. Private fly fishing lessons and group clinics can be arranged on site. After a days fishing one can enjoy a drink at the bar, have a game of pool or darts then unwind in the sauna or swimming pool. Of course should it be chilly one can warm up around roaring log fires in the lounge. The Lodge is just the place for a fishing vacation or weekend getaway, but any nature lover will find themselves in a proverbial paradise. For the sedentary tourist, relaxing on the wooden decked patio watching the abundant birdlife is a must. The Sabie area is truly a birders paradise. Not only is there a huge variety of the more common bird species, but a number of globally and nationally threatened species also occur in the area. For those in need of exercise, on farm trails and walks to the nearby waterfalls & caves are just as enjoyable but should you require additional stimulation: - Various mountain bike trials are available onsite. Arrangements can be made for Quad Bike tours, horse riding, gorge-swinging, rafting & many more activities. The aborigine word for home is "Gunya". The name of our guest lodge is Gunyatoo, embedded in our name is our philosophy and commitment to our guests - " our home is your home". Come and stay with us a while and it can be your Gunya-too! ... more   less
