Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve, the premier wild-trout flyfishing destination in Southern Africa, is a registered site of Conservation Significance (site no 49). Home to prolific wildlife and waterfowl, it has been called "one of the most beautiful fly-fishing destinations on the planet" (R. Kirby). With the Umzimkulwana river and a lake full of wild-spawning rainbow and brown trout, Giants Cup Wilderness sets the standard for authentic wilderness angling in spectacular mountain scenery. It is a birders and hikers paradise. There are more than 106 identified rock-art sites in the sandstone layer in the surrounding Drakensberg wilderness.

With four en-suite double bedrooms in 3 thatched units, Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve offers exceptional comfort and privacy in an unspoiled mountain wilderness.

The Lakeside Lodge and Fisherman's Cottage are set in pines - a short cast away from the water's edge - with en-suite Jacuzzi baths, fully-equipped kitchens, lounge and fireplace, patio and braai, offering accommodation in well-appointed comfort.
All linens, crockery and cutlery are provided.

Duckbay Lodge occupies the premium position on the farm. It is set on the edge of a pine glade, up near the estuary and the reed-beds that surround it. Very private and a birder's paradise. With an en-suite Jacuzzi bath, fully-equipped kitchen, lounge and fireplace, patio and braai. Please not that this Lodge is 4x4 access only!

The lodging are well-appointed but without tv, radio or telephones. Cell phone reception varies from good to poor.

The reserve is situated just outside Underberg in the Southern Drakensberg at the end of a 2,5 km stretch of rough road. Low vehicles are not advised!
