We pride ourselves in being green; providing our own electricity and water from natural resources, as well as effluent treatment, making us independent from the national power grid and other municipal services. Our main farming activity is the growing of rainbow and brown trout and organic pecan nuts. At Outeniqua Trout Lodge, we pride ourselves in participating in responsible sustainable tourism. The ever-changing mountains form the backdrop to this picturesque farm. It is a perfect retreat; a place where the "Absolute Peace" will restore weary souls, and the only sounds are bird songs and the cry of the Fish Eagle.

There is no television, telephone or mobile reception in our valley, perfect to enjoy the bright stars and silence of the farm. Remember, de Vlugt has no petrol, bank or credit card facilities, so fill up you tank and your wallet before you arrive. The lodge section of the farm is separate to the growing and farming area and is a secure peaceful environment. Guests are welcome to explore the farm on foot, or learn more about our responsible sustainable farming and how we generate our own electricity with hydro and solar power.

In Room Facilities:

Heerlike, stil, weg van die rumoer en tegnologie-lewe. Pragtige uitsig in die dag en skoon hemelruim in die aand.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

A kiss of paradise....

This is undoubtedly the best kept secret of the Outeniquas...raw untapped beauty that you dont expect, exquisite glorious nature with picturesque trails for walks and MTB, magic sun-kissed rockpools filled with crystal pure spring water bubbling from the earth, trout fishing, prolific birdlife, sunsets and sunrises that will restore your soul to untold highs, and an experience that will make you fall in love with life, with yourself, with him/her, heal you of your... A place to be mindful, find restoration and peace... blesbok and beautiful tame ponies that wondering over daily to say hello, natural springs and so much more... vistas that knock leave you gobsmacked....

Discover this secret that Ingo and Gizelle have cultivated into into a rare piece of paradise and you'll never look back.

Thank you, Ingo, for the most amazing experience of our lives....we hope to be back very very very soon again. You were right when you said we will wish we had booked for longer....

We were travelling and staying at a different place each night. Bain's Retreat at the Outeniqua Trout Lodge was voted the best of all the overnight stays we had experienced. And such interesting and friendly proprietors!.

Wonderful out of the way stay in a clean and very well equipped self catering unit. The timber homes have very nice views and provides the ideal setting for a most enjoyable stay.

We would love to go back some time in the future!

The accommodation was neat and clean but you need to bring everything you may need as no basic provisions like salt etc.
You need a 4 wheel drive to get to the lodges as the road is very bad with lots of rocks and stones. Three of us had to get out of the car and walk up (quite a distance) to the lodge while the driver navigated the steep track to bring the luggage up.It is not suitable for an average car. The property looks neglected and the pool is not fit to swim in.
