Dimalachite River Lodge

Holiday Resort Accommodation In Parys

Discover the peace and tranquility of nature from the banks of the Vaal River. Dimalachite is situated in the Vredefort Dome, a "World Heritage Site", created by the impact of the biggest and oldest meteorite that ever struck the earth. The unspoiled nature includes a wide variety of indigenous trees, plants and birds alongside the river front. Dimalachite is home to lots of water and land birds to see, with the call of the fish eagle that can be heard from time to time. Dimalachite's terrain, facilities and activities are ideal for private visitors, corporate team building and conferencing, as well as youth camps.

Dimalachite offers accommodation in luxury three star river lodges, regular self catering chalets, and campsites on the riverbank. Come and enjoy the thrill of white-water rafting or enjoy some fishing and do bird watching. Dimalachite is truly a fisherman's paradise with BIG carp, yellows, mudfish, barber and bass. You can bring the whole family with. It is safe and Mom can stay in a luxury lodge if she wants too!!

The kids can enjoy the swimming pool, play tennis, pool and volleyball or watch satellite (DSTV) in the TV room while you are busy fishing or relaxing in the jacuzzi. The kids are welcome to bring their bikes or mountain bikes, as there is plenty of space for that. There is a kiosk available that sells ice, wood, charcoal, cool drinks, ice-cold beer, ice-cream, chips, bread, milk etc.

Visit Dimalachite if you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town, and want to enjoy a bit of country life. Come and enjoy the misty mornings and sunny days with us.
