      Mount Anderson Ranch

      Adventure in the Drakensburg Mountains in South Africa

      Set in the dramatic highveld of the Drakensberg Mountains of the Mpumalanga Province – which sweep up to the 7,500-ft Mount Anderson Peak – the nearly 20,000-acre Mount Anderson property falls within the rainfall catchment area of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. No less than five major rivers rise on the property. Proclaimed a water catchment nature reserve in 1990, this unique venture gives environmental protection to Africa's high-altitude flora and fauna, housing a remarkable number of indigenous wildlife species, plants and birds. Mount Anderson is booked exclusively with a minimum of 2 guests and a maximum of 10 guests. This pink stone, ranch-style homestead situated in the Krantzkloof Valley on Mount Anderson Ranch, is totally secluded and tastefully furnished to the highest standards. Guests have exclusive use of the house as well as a team of competent staff on hand to attend to their every need. The rambling colonial-style farmhouse is more luxury home than hotel. Accommodation is in three luxury double suites and two luxury family rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. In addition, there are two elegant, spacious lounges, a dining room, a terrace overlooking the tiered trout ponds, which offer stunning views, particularly at sunset. Guests at Mount Anderson can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities in the company of a qualified ranger or host. The 24 weirs, large lake and long river catchments provide opportunities for the strong-fighting indigenous fish species commonly referred to as “Yellow Gold”. High-quality fly-fishing rods and reels are available at Mount Anderson. Wildlife safaris, either on horseback, bicycle or in a four-wheel-drive vehicle, are undertaken in the mountains surrounding the homestead. Herds of Africa's less famous antelope including eland, black wildebeest, blesbuck, mountain reedbuck and the very uncommon oribi are likely to be seen, as well as brief glimpses of predators such as elusive leopards, jackals or caracals. Indigenous birdlife includes the brilliant malachite sunbird, the Cape vulture, the fish eagle and numerous species of francolin. The relics of the gold mining era of the 1920s and 1930s still remain on the property. Old miners' houses, a mining press and deep-level shafts bear witness to the harshness of the conditions in which the pioneers worked. Guests may explore these old gold mine workings and shafts and may even try their hand at panning for gold.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
