on the banks of the river . .
Fish Eagle River Lodge was named after the two breeding pairs of African Fish Eagles nesting on the banks of the Berg river, which forms one of the boundaries of this working olive, vine and vegetable farm. The tranquil setting offers both bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation, set in beautifully landscape gardens with the imposing Elandskloof mountain range as a backdrop. The farm also has the only camping & caravan site in the Riebeek Valley, reserved for "grown-ups" with no children or pets allowed.
We invite you to experience friendly country hospitality at its best.
Wake up to the sounds of the prolific bird life, breathe in the fresh country air and enjoy long walks on farm roads. Enjoy the lush garden, shaded veranda and sparkling swimming pool. Canoes are available to enjoy leisurely outings on the Berg River.
Be amazed at the stars in the clear night sky and remember the haunting call of the Fish Eagle for a long time to come.
In the vicinity you can explore the Riebeek Valley and just 5 minutes away are the quaint twin villages of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West, nestling among vineyards and olive groves, offering excellent restaurants and shops.
Taste wine and olive products from well known wineries like Kloovenburg, Allesverloren and Riebeek Cellars, to name but a few.
The historic towns of Tulbagh and Wellington are both about 20 km's away and the scenic winelands of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are easily accessible from here.
