“Enjoy the little things in life because one day you`ll look back and realize they were the big things.” – Kurt Vonnegut, American novelist, satirist, and graphic artist
You like life’s simple pleasures. Your idea of a great day is one spent in quiet, natural surroundings, where you hear nothing but the sounds of birds, a bubbling stream, and a few free-roaming animals chattering in the hills around you.
End that off with jovial conversation, a crackling fire, and a glass of your favourite beverage and you’re not just in heaven… You’re in Machadostud Lodge.
Where you’ll find Machadostud Lodge
Machadostud Lodge is a self-catering cattle farm and fishing lodge nestled in the mountainous eastern highlands of Mpumalanga, just 20km from Machadodorp. The panoramic views and resident ducks, geese, turkeys and peacocks make this rustic resort the ideal getaway for nature-lovers.
Keen fly fishermen, you’re invited to cast your lines in any of the lodge’s eight dams and seven weirs, where you can hook rainbow, golden and brown trout. Fly tackle is always available and float tubes and kick boats are welcome.
Stay over and celebrate
Our three fully equipped, self-catering cottages can accommodate two to 12 guests each; offering you anything from a romantic escape to an engaging family vacation. Our facilities can even cater for functions of up to 18 guests – a memorable setting for small weddings.
