Welcome to Valley of the Rainbow

Whether you’re a nature lover or outdoor enthusiast, Valley of the Rainbow Mountain Fly Fishing Estate and Nature Reserve is an incredible place to be all year’ round.

Surrounded by mountains, indigenous forests and rivers and with a mild climate and malaria free this is a venue to experience peace and tranquility away from city life.

The venue is near the towns of Dullstroom and Belfast, and is well situated on the premier tourist routes form Johannesburg and Pretoria to the tourist attractions on the eastern escarpment and lowveld regions of Mpumalanga, South Africa.
