Arriving at Rivendell Trout Estate you descend into the spectacular Spekboom River Valley on a winding road flanked by towering rugged cliffs, a magical place reminiscent of Middle Earth from J.R.R. Tolkeins book Lord of the Rings. Past owners felt strongly about this resemblance and thus the names of the Estate and the cottages will be familiar to fans of the book or the movies.
Rivendell Trout Estate falls within the Mount Anderson Water Catchment Reserve, a Conservancy of many thousands of hectares where kudu, bushbuck, duiker, bushpigs and baboons are prolific and untroubled, wandering the entire area at will and often grazing peacefully while visitors fly fish for trout. Klipspringer are seen almost daily and leopard are seen regularly – occasionally even during the day.
