Activities and Things to Do At Wolwekrans Lodge,Mpumalanga

Star Gazing

When was the last time you lay back and gazed at the heavens? Life gets so busy that we quickly forget about the stars above us that provide a show of their own each night. We also tend to live in areas where star gazing is near impossible due to light pollution. At Wolwekrans, we have the clearest skies in the area, with the height of our lodge giving our guests a great vantage point. Up at our lodge, there is no light pollution to disrupt your star gazing.


Seemingly endless, unspoiled landscapes make for fantastic opportunities to go hiking. We have a number of hiking trails for you to enjoy and most of them are quite easy to tackle, so don’t worry too much about your fitness. Wolwekrans is home to plenty of wildlife, some of which might cross your path while hiking. We ask that you are always respectful of the nature around you. Other activities that you can enjoy in the area include fly fishing in places along the Highland Meander, as well as golf. Schoemanskloof is home to the only mountain golf course in the country.

Looking for an affordable holiday of a different kind? Stay in mountain chalets with only stunning views and silence. Book your weekend getaway with Wolwekrans via our website or you can give us a call. Be sure to like our Facebook page to find out more about our holiday specials.#schoemanskloof
