We have just returned for an amazing trip to Giants Cup Reserve. The spectacular view that greets you as you arrive, sets the tone for the rest of your stay. We stayed in a little thatched cottage called Fishermans Cottage, set in among the Pine trees. The tranquility of the place is a great setting for some real R and R. Both Wolf and Jack Avni were so welcoming and very interesting to talk to about life on the reserve and running a trout farm. We enjoyed fresh trout for dinner straight from the hatchery, a meal fit for a king. Morning runs, paddles on the boat, fly fishing, walks around the farm, fireplace, red wine and of course a braai. A little bit of paradise preserved in time. Thank you to all at Giants Cup. We will definitely be back.

What a gorgeous location. Not too far from Underberg is this fantastic farm. Unbelievable views and the setting is just the best. We stayed in the Lakeside Cottage that is nestled in the pine trees and overlooks the magnificent lake. Fishing was not the best as trout had just spawned and were hiding but definitely worth the trip!

A beautiful, isolated setting away from the madding crowd. The wind blowing through the pine trees at night was the perfect way to fall asleep. Amazing views of the lake which settles in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. You can hear the sounds of all sorts of wildlife at night in the stillness. It’s also really close to the Underberg town centre so you can stock up on supplies. Very friendly and informative staff and hosts who are always nearby if you need help. Our wood was restocked and cottage cleaned daily. We also received complimentary bread fresh from the oven, plus trout pate from the hatchery.

This is the most incredibly beautiful setting you could wish for - the view is incomparable - accommodation very comfortable and the hiking great. We had a glorious time - although the road to the reserve is a little challenging for an ordinary vehicle, we found it close to all the places we wanted to visit - we did Sani Pass, Kenmo lake, Sani spoors cycling and Garden Castle hikes easily - fantastic stay!
