At Komati River Chalets - Free to our in house guests

Komati River Chalets is situated on 12 acres of prime river front land.
Because of this a number of activities are available to our guests on the property itself which are free of charge.

River Walks:
The Komati River itself is no more the 50 metres from any of the chalets and cottages. A thick riverside forest occurs all along the river banks. There are numerous path ways through the beautiful age old indigenous tree forest sporting beautiful views of the Komati River and some of its animal and bird life. The river is the home to wild crocodile and hippos so care must be taken at all times when walking in the forest.

Bird Watching:
There are over 500 bird species on offer in the area, and due to the river frontage some of Africa's finest water birds and fowl are local residents.
(Be sure to pack your binoculars!)


The Komati River is home to numerous species of fresh water fish. The most famous of these species is the Tiger Fish, due to its supreme game fish status as Africa's best fresh water fighting fish. There are various well positioned spots all along the river front on the property for keen anglers! Other species that can be caught from the property are Mozimbique Bream (Blue Kurper), Red breasted bream, Mudfish, Catfish and carp.
(Bring your own tackle!)
