About Us

Santa Estate, a 2000ha farm, was one of the original trout fishing syndicates in the Dullstroom area starting in the 1940s. The syndicate has maintained an enviable reputation for excellent waters and comfortable, well-serviced cottages since then.

Members have exclusive access to 6 kms of the Lunsklip River, and an extensive network of fourteen weirs, ten dams and natural streams, providing fly fishing for both the highly skilled fisherman and the enthusiastic novice. Enjoy fishing, walking, mountain biking and bird watching or just curl up with a book and a glass of wine next to a wood burning fire.

There are three self-catering and serviced cottages, which all have a comfortable lounge with open fireplace, dining room and well-equipped kitchen. All bedrooms are well appointed and some are en-suite (see details under accommodation). Enjoy the verandas and braai facilities on summer evenings. The three cottages are situated in different parts of the farm, completely isolated from each other and very private. A fourth cottage can be made available at certain times of the year.

Located 12 km outside Dullstroom on the Lydenburg road, Santa gives you the opportunity to get away but is still close enough to enjoy what Dullstroom and its surrounds have to offer.

Santa offers different fly fishing syndicate options to suit your needs and budget. Please contact Riette for more information (see details under Contact Us).
