Wetlands Country House is located in the songful birder's paradise of Wakkerstroom.
Wetlands Country House is the premium accommodation available in sleepy Wakkerstroom, a natural heritage site and renowned to be amongst the top birding destinations in South Africa. The area lies about two and half hours from Johannesburg on the border of Mpumalanga and the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The cozy little town is known as ‘the jewel of Mpumalanga’ and is the second oldest town in the province.
Wetlands Country House & Sheds is set on six hectares of stunning grass- and wetland about 100m from Martin's Dam. Bedrooms are located in the main house and in the free-standing sheds around the main house. All rooms are en suite and are beautifully decorated. The sheds are fitted with fireplaces that are incredibly cozy during the cool winter months.
Should you tire of birding, guests can visit and feed the alpacas at a nearby home-spun yarn farm and learn more about the natural products that they yield. Wakkerstroom is also known as ‘a fly fisherman’s dream’, with many dedicated trout farms in the area. Visitors frequently hike up Ossewakop (oxwagon head), a leisurely route up the mountain that overlooks the village.
