We spent 2 nights at Dawsons, taking advantage of their special winter offer at a reduced price. The lodge and rooms are all decorated in a strong "Out of Africa"theme, ie dark furniture and there is a strong colonial feel about the place. It is...More

This was the first place we stayed in SA. The room was incredible and the food extremely good. We enjoyed a day walking around the estate seeing the wildlife and plants. It was a long drive to anywhere else.

About
Description
At the foot of the Nelshoogte pass in Mpumalanga, lies a spectacular home of luxury... Dawsons Game & Trout Lodge. Dawsons is a place where the sun dances across the open plains at sunrise and sunset, painting the More landscape a vivid combination of fiery red, orange, copper and gold. Where large herds of Zebra, Impala, Springbok, Blesbuck, Eland and Wildebeest slowly wander the 2000ha Savannah plains, impervious to time. It is a place where dramatic mountains, waterfalls and perennial streams flow lazily from trout dam to trout dam. Surrounded by open space where you can relish the freedom of timelessness, exploration and peace. It is a place of retreat, of absolute relaxation. We offer magnificent accommodation, superb cuisine, and impeccable service Less

It is a shorter drive from the Nelspruit Airport so for that reason I will recommend the Nelspruit route.
