With summer drawing to a close you’re probably feeling a little restless… and you are perhaps dreaming of an escape to the countryside, to breath in the fresh air, to revel in the beauty of outdoor spaces?
Set in the rolling hills of the Mpumalanga Highlands with its endless vistas and a mantle of peaceful serenity, just outside the quaint and popular fly-fishing hamlet of Dullstroom and only a 2½ hour drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, you’ll find the Walkersons Hotel & Spa – the dream countryside destination that has charmed visitors to Dullstroom for more than twenty years.
Over the next few months Walkersons is offering some really amazing discounts. And if you’re wanting to take advantage of these discounts and you’re able to escape midweek – Sunday to Thursday, no minimum stay, subject to availability – you could get up to an amazing 50% off.
Walkersons Hotel & Spa created by the original owners in a Scottish Country Manor style is an exclusive 5-star country house – a perfect blend of elegance and charm – that offers accommodation with all the modern comforts.
There are 27 standard rooms, 14 Lakeside Suites, 11 luxury Lakeside Suites – large contemporary suites with two bathrooms; the two-bedroom Manor Suite and a large contemporary Honeymoon Suite, and if you prefer the independence of self-catering there are five fully furnished, self-catering cottages, with either soothing lakeside or spectacular mountain views.

Along with its gourmet country dining, a luxurious on-site Spa, fly-fishing in one of the 14 lakes and dams dotted about the estate, and the surrounding unspoiled scenery, you’ll probably not want to leave the hotel at all!
You can enjoy traditional full breakfasts or light lunches at the informal Terrace Restaurant – a perfect choice for families with children (there is a great kids menu); the four- course dinners at The Flying Scotsman are exceptional and the famous Walkersons’ scones, served at afternoon tea overlooking the rose gardens, are not to be missed.
Walkersons boasts an array of inviting activities ranging from long walks along the contoured pathways that meander along a mountain stream which feeds the well-stocked trout dams, an energetic hike to the top of the estate to see the wildlife – impala, red hartebeest, springbok, Zebra, Blue Wildebeest and Blesbok – to saddling-up to explore the countryside, or spending a day honing your skills in the fine art of fly fishing (guides are on hand to help novices or to advise experienced anglers of the best fishing spots).
Recipient of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence awards from 2013 to 2018, and of the Travellers Choice awards in 2019 and 2021, Walkersons Hotel & Spa is ideal for exclusive weekend breaks, weddings and business conferences.
