Activities

Situated in a conservation area, Westwood Trout Lodge is a perfect spot for bird watching, bicycling, running and walking.  We are approximately 16 km from the Karkloof Conservation Centre and the excitement of the Karkloof Canopy Tours.  Enjoy easy access to the Central Berg for day excursions.

Trout Fishing

Within a conservation area and surrounded by 30 hectares of  private land, Westwood guarantees secluded trout fishing in a spectacular setting.  Currently the three dams are stocked with Rainbows. Catch and release fly-fishing is available using barbless hooks. The Trout Fishing policy and regulations are available at the lodge and/or from the owner.  Day fishing is permitted when the lodge is not occupied. As only 6 fisherman per day are allowed, early booking is necessary.

The rod fee is R150,00 per rod per day.

There is no rod fee if guests are staying at the lodge.

 
     

Mountain Biking

Westwood is located in prime mountain biking country. The nearby Karkloof valley is home to the Karkloof Classic every May and is regularly voted as having the best single forest track in South Africa.

Riding is available from the front door in every direction and includes open farm land, drop-offs over the escarpment, purist forest riding (the estate borders several hundred hectares of Mondi forest with open rider admission) and is also close enough to link to roughly 50km of groomed single track in the Karkloof Valley.

Suggested routes are available, as well as a mechanic stand and a pressure hose for cleaning muddy bikes.

 
     

Karkloof Canopy Tours

The Karkloof Canopy Tour is a unique eco-experience that takes people on a 3-hr adventure through the magnificent Karkloof indigenous forest.

The canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30m above the forest floor. The tour comprises seven platforms and eight slides that zig-zag down a pristine forested valley. The scenery and birdlife is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the tour.

From the start on the launch platform a new world unfolds as one gently glides on a steel cable to the first platform. All groups are escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a follow guide to ensure your safety as you slide from tree to tree. The platforms are built high up in the forest canopy and all offer different views of the surrounding forest, a magnificent 20m waterfall, clear sparkling forest stream and across the expansive Karkloof valley far below.

 
     

Golf

Gowrie Farm Golf Course:  (Nottingham Road)

The golf course at Gowrie Farm has been built in the classic style with tees close to the ground, gently undulating fairways and push-up greens. The course has the feel of an inland links course and while it is testing for the good players, it is also enjoyable for the average golfer. It is a par 70, 9 hole course which has 2 additional short holes, totaling 5 short holes. As a result, it gives the course variety and interest and ensures that the golfer has the feel of playing an 18 hole rather than a 9 hole.

Bosch Hoek Golf Course: (Midlands)

Bosch Hoek offers a boutique golfing experience on one of the most picturesque layouts in the country. The nine hole, 18 tee course is designed around a lake, dams, streams and beautiful trees. It is a challenging course with water features on seven holes.

 
     

Midlands Meander

The Midlands Meander is what weavers, potters, woodcrafters, leather workers, artists, metalworkers, box makers, herb growers, cheese makers, beer brewers and pianos have in common. You will find them all, and a great deal more on the Midlands Meander map – South Africa's first, largest and most popular art and crafts route.

Midlands meander crafter at workThe Midlands Meander extends over a distance of some 80 kms between Pietermaritzburg and Mooi River and was started in 1983 by several of the craftspeople who have long resided in the area (often as exceedingly contented refugees from city life) as a way to market their products, keep down their prices and allow visitors a glance at their craft.
