Little Long Creek
For a little bit of heaven, on the outskirts of the Drakensberg, and only 2½ hours’ drive from Johannesburg, come to Little Long Creek. A beautiful 7 hectare dam is situated in front of the chalet. Apart from being stocked with bass, yellow fish and trout, the dam lends itself to water sports such as swimming, wind surfing, canoeing and kite skiing.
A variety of bird species are also available in the hunting season. These include guinea fowl, redwing francolin, swainson’s francolin, Egyptian geese and the yellow billed duck.
A lot of work was put in to turn the isolated chalet into a well equipped and peaceful home away from home. It is clean and spacious and the interior and exterior braai (barbeque) areas cater for all sorts of weather. The fully furnished chalet is equipped with two bathrooms and sleeps six people. The adjacent rondawel has room for two people.
Little Long Creek’s great new addition on the banks of the Komandospruit is a self-catering chalet, with 3 bedrooms (pax 6), 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge with a fire place, and to round it all off - an amazing Rhodesian Teak deck with braai facilities overlooking the running water.
The 4km stream with its three weirs makes for wonderful sightseeing and leads to the perennial Kommandospruit with its indigenous yellow fish, which are especially active from January to April.
