When you travel for a living as we do (lucky, I know), you get to see hundreds of different hotels and accommodations – ranging from luxury five-star suites to charming back-packer retreats, and while many are memorable and recommendable, it is rare to come across a property that makes you say “wow”.
However, during our recent trip to Mpumalanga in South Africa, we came across one such property, and if you are looking for a small and inviting hotel surrounded by dramatic mountains, perennial streams, impressive waterfalls, and an abundance of game, we would have to recommend you head on down to Dawsons Game & Trout Lodge.
A wonderful location for destination weddings, birthday parties, or quite simply, a relaxing weekend away, Dawsons Game & Trout Lodge combines the opulence of luxury accommodations and fine dining with the rustic charm of the South African bush, to create a truly unique and very special retreat.
Sitting around 2-hours south from the world-famous Kruger National Park, and the uber luxurious Sabi Sands, Dawsons is perfectly situated for those who are self-driving South Africa and after two or three days of safari action, you will welcome the peace and serene surroundings that this beautiful property has to offer.
Dining at Dawsons is an unforgettable experience, and whether you decide to dine in the exquisite dining room filled with antique treasures, or enjoy your breakfast and dinner under the sunshine and stars, you will appreciate the personal service, mouth-watering menus, and the attention to detail that transforms every mealtime into a special event.
Dawsons Game & Trout Lodge really does have the ‘wow factor’, and if you are looking to experience something a little bit different, we can highly recommend you visit this South African gem.
