"It is a place where the sun dances across the open plains at sunrise and sunset, painting the landscape a vivid combination of fiery red, orange, copper and gold.It is a place where herds of zebra, giraffe, nguni cattle, impala, springbok, bontebok, eland and wildebeest slowly wander the land, impervious to time.
It is a place where dramatic mountains with perennial streams and waterfalls form the Komati River, flowing lazily from trout dam to trout dam. It is a place of open space, where you can relish the freedom of timelessness, exploration and peace. It is a place of retreat, of absolute relaxation.It is Dawson’s Game and Trout Lodge - undoubtedly, magnificently, Unique."
