Overview

There is nothing quite like escaping to the unspoilt splendour of the Highveld, far away from the city's hustle and bustle. Riverman Cabin is situated in the Tonteldoos Valley, 25 km northeast of Dullstroom, which is only two-and-a-half hours' drive from Johannesburg.

Riverman Cabin consists of seven independent cabins - three of which are stone and thatch cabins, one brick cabin and the other three are wooden cabins. All the cabins are fully furnished and equipped for a homely self-catering experience. All the cabins are open plan with cosy indoor fireplaces, as well as private, external braai areas with complimentary wood stocked for the first night. Riverman offers fly-fishing in three well-stocked dams, driving range on site (clubs available for hire), a curio shop, picnics, scrumptious meals at the Mine View restaurant and excellent views on our nature walk.

This enchanting country experience caters for every whim, whether you seek peace and serenity or feel like challenging your adventurous spirit. Our trout dams lie waiting for the avid fly-fisher, willing to rise with the sun - coffee flask in hand. If this doesn't tickle your fancy, sleep in and awake to the sounds of abundant bird life, then bask in the sun with a captivating read.

The farm boasts luscious trees, streams running through the trout dams and bold mountains, all of which contribute to the unique variety of fauna and flora to be found in the area, including endangered species such as the Crane family, Oribi, Aardwolf and Arum Lilies. Get to the top of the koppies any way you like, just as long as you take the time to soak in the panoramic grandeur of your surroundings and enjoy a sundowner with the mountains fading into the horizon

Whether you are a morning person who likes big breakfasts or prefer to sleep in, looking to spoil that special someone or just want a quick snack while you're out and about - we've got you covered! In our picnic range we've mixed Luxury with Affordability - enabling you to get the full country experience without hurting your pocket!

Our fully-stocked dams ensure a great fishing experience for all. Rods can be hired at R100.00 per day and includes 10 flies. R100 deposit is required when renting a rod. To avoid disappointment, please book your rod in advance.

Bring along your golf clubs and test your skills at our Driving Range. Golf balls are charged at R40.00 per bucket (50 balls). Clubs can be hired at R10.00, for those who aren't regular players, but keen to give it a try.

Afterwards, silence a rumbling tummy with a delicious meal at The Mine View Restaurant, or enjoy a sundowner on the deck, overlooking the Driving Range. If the idea of freshly baked bread sounds enticing, you can order a bread, freshly baked on demand, in the restaurant. Satisfy your need for Retail Therapy at the quaint curio shop, located next to the Restaurant. Here you will find various arts and crafts, souvenirs and weekend essentials such as coffee, tea, toothpaste, charcoal and firelighters.

Absolutely loved it there, planning another trip for June if all goes well.

We had a comfortable romantic stay at Riverman. The little cottage we stayed in was absolutely delightful, compact, neat and perfect for a winter weekend getaway. There was an extra blanket for warmth and a fireplace to add to the ambiance. Loved the morning of the small dam and the sheep coming through to graze. The décor was simple and cosy and it all looked great with the leather and dark wood, the fantastic idea of exposed copper piping, and the little extra objet d'art around the cottage. We were exceptionally comfortable and had everything we needed.
My only little niggle would have been that if the venue was fully booked,this romantic little cabin may become "not so peaceful" due to the close proximity to 2 other larger family size cottages...in winter this may not be too much of a problem as most people would be inside keeping warm, but in summer, it may become rather noisy or disruptive. However, hiring of the 3 cottages for a family/friend weekend away, this could be a perfect solution.
For the price, it would have been nice to have the cottage serviced - even if JUST washing up once a day, and double ply toilet paper.
2 things for the kitchen...please sharpen knives and add short/whisky glasses.

A really wonderful spot just a few hours from Joburg! The cabin was lovely, clean and well-stocked, as well as being cosy and romantic. The area is peaceful and idyllic and the friendly, helpful staff only enhanced the experience. Already recommended Riverman Cabins to friends and family!
