Walkersons Hotel & Spa: a country getaway

Walkersons Hotel & Spa is situated in the rolling hills of the Mpumalanga highlands, just beyond the picturesque hamlet of Dullstroom.

It’s set on the expansive 800-hectare Walkersons Private Estate and the original owners were inspired to create a hotel with an old-world country atmosphere that was reminiscent of a Scottish Country Manor. It is now a haven of serenity – a perfect blend of elegance and charm with tastefully appointed bedrooms, large verandas, elegant dining rooms, terraces and lovely lawns leading to a hidden swimming pool.

Its seclusion sets it apart from other establishments of its kind. Guests are free to roam and explore the surroundings and partake in outdoor experiences – from walking along the footpaths, to hiking over hills with amazing views. Visitors can get within metres of the estate’s wildlife: red hartebeest, springbok, zebra, blue wildebeest and blesbok. Fly-fishing in one or more of the fourteen lakes and dams on the property is also a favourite.

One of Walkersons’ biggest attractions is its delicious cuisine, which can be enjoyed at either The Flying Scotsman or the more informal Terrace restaurant.

Don’t forget to try the famous Walkersons scones at afternoon teatime!
