"The Midlands Meander is one of the most popular fishing destinations in the country; with some of the best landscape and fishing waters in South Africa. With the gentle tranquillity of the Midlands countryside calling and the opportunity to catch a trophy trout, outsmart a wily bass or engage the challenging indigenous yellowfish." There are many farms in the area that offer day fishing trips.let us know and we can "hook you up".




"There are a number of top class recreational riding opportunities in the Midlands. The Howick, Karkloof and Big Wheel Cycles (Lions River) trails are some of the most highly rated in South Africa, with over 200km of purpose built MTB single-track be across the networks. These trail networks primarily traverse Sappi’s properties and to a lesser degree one or two other private farms."


"Meander the Natal Midlands from the comfort of one of the Buffelsbosch Equestrian saddles, atop a well-trained horse that is cooperative and good natured. Buffelsbosch Farm is situated in Lidgetton Valley, making it the ideal base from which to go on outride adventures or a gentle walk through the verdant beauty of this part of South Africa.
Buffelsbosch Equestrian offers riders of all abilities (even beginners with no previous experience horse riding on or with a horse) a number of trails and outride options. These not only showcase the loveliness of the Midlands to perfection, but also allow visitors to interact with these intelligent, soulful animals in a hands-on, personal way."


"Bosch Hoek is a hidden treasure, a picturesque course in park-like surroundings where nothing compares to the tranquillity, serenity and fresh country air.  Voted best nine-hole course (Complete Golfer 2007)."


"Nature is generous here in the Midlands. Not only do you get to experience the grandeur of the mountains and the grasslands, encounter wetlands filled with birdlife, but you can explore pristine mistbelt forest with rare species and be humbled by trees that are hundreds of years old."
