A quiet place to sink your teeth into those books you've been meaning to start, try your hand at some fly fishing, head out for a hike or just do nothing (something I did quite a lot of!), Verlorenkloof is a well established and highly regarded share block development on the eastern escarpment in the heart of the trout triangle in Mpumalanga. With 12 private, stone thatched crofts, sleeping up to 10 people, it's the prefect place to escape to with a group of friends to enjoy a long weekend. And thats exactly what Farmboy and I, my mom and friend Louise did a few weeks ago.
If you've had enough down time, head out to Dulstroom, Lydenburg or even check out the Kruger Park (just a 2 hour drive from Verlorenkloof).
Nearly all of the bedrooms in the crofts are ensuite, and they are serviced twice a day by little fairies. Bliss. For more information, click here to see the estates website with details of how and when to book.
Happy relaxing :)
