Things to do
Walkersons Country Estate offers something for everyone.
Dullstroom has become renowned for its excellent fishing facilities and is considered to be the fly fishing capital of South Africa. Walkersons, itself, boasts 14 lakes and dams, all stocked with rainbow trout, making the estate a fly fisher’s paradise. Both novices and experienced fly fishermen alike are invited to try their hand at flyfishing. The local flyfishing shop, Mavuanga, in town will organise lessons and their guides are on hand to help any guests come to grips with the art of fly fishing.
Dullstroom Riding Centre, based on the Estate, offers lakes, forests and verdant rolling hills, through which you can traverse. Dave Curtis offers a herd of well tempered, beautiful horses from which to choose. Whether it is a family excursion or a group event, horse riding in Dullstroom is an experience not soon forgotten.

Walking and Hiking
A network of paved, contoured pathways make their way throughout the 800 hectare Walkersons Estate and up into the mountain reserve, ensuring that walking trails are pleasantly simple. In fact, in the valley, over 3000 meters of paved paths make it easy for either a hearty jog or a lazy, pleasant riverside stroll beside beautiful winding rivers or waterfalls.
Alternatively our more energetic hike to the top of the estate will take you closer to a variety of Dullstroom wildlife, which includes Impala, Zebra, Blue wildebeest and Bles buck, and offers truly panoramic and spectacular views.
Nestled in the Steenkampsberg mountain range near Dullstroom lies the Highland Gate Golf and Trout Estate.
This Ernie Els signature Golf Course offers a truly memorable experience with its idyllic setting and provides a challenging opportunity for any golfer.
