Carryblaire River Retreat

From R410 PPS



Only an hour's drive from Johannesburg and nestled on the banks of the Vaal River near Parys and Vredefort Dome, Carryblaire River Retreat embodies peace, tranquillity and a sense of oneness with nature.

With its own natural island and being a bird sanctuary the views offered at Carryblaire are breathtaking and some of the most beautiful in Africa. The Yellowfish that leap through the water are considered to rival Trout in their ability to entice fishermen in a challenge of wits, while the calls of the nesting Fish Eagles remind us of their superiority in the air.Drink in the beauty and serenity around you, and let us and nature do the rest.

Carryblaire River Retreat has 11 rooms and can sleep 24 people on a sharing basis. All our bedrooms are decoratively inspired by elements from African nature. Most have thatched roofs and mosquito nets and are scattered with antique pieces collected from Parys.

All rooms have tea & coffee facilities and fridges and are fitted with fans and for the winter months with electric heaters and electric blankets. Rooms can be made up as either king size bed or two single beds and have full en-suite bathrooms.

Carryblaire offers an option to book meals in advance and consist of healthy and wholesome farm style cooking, served in the dining room at the main lodge with stunning views overlooking the river. We serve a set menu 3 course dinner in the evenings (please let us have any dietary requirements) and for breakfast a full English accompanied with cereals, yogurt, fruit, juice and tea/coffee. Please see our rates page for details.

Guest Comments

This is a beautiful place to be at,but its not user friendly in terms of cooking and/or self catering. If you visit here be sure you have ready made food or ask the landlord to prepare food for you which I think she will do. The place needs serious TLC and thorough revamp. Otherwise it is a beautiful place 14km out of Parys town, driving on a bad bad dead road. 4X4 will be an ideal car.

A wonderful getaway for our family, with very friendly hosts. We had a wonderful time, found the trips in and out of Parys most enjoyable.
