Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve (Southern Drakensberg), 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, Giants Cup 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

Accommodation at Giants Cup

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 Fishermans Cottage are set in pines - a short cast away from the waters edge - with en-suite jacuzzis, fully-equipped kitchens, lounge and fireplace, patio and braai, offering accommodation in well-appointed comfort. All linens, crockery and cutlery are provided. Catering is available by appointment.

The lodging is well-appointed, but without television, radio and telephone. Cellphone reception at the units varies from good to poor, with 082 reception better than 083. Fax, telephone and email facilities are available at the main farmhouse. If you are self-catering, bring your food and fishing tackle. Everything else supplied by Giants Cup.

Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve has been called “one of the world’s most beautiful trout angling resorts” (Fly-Fishing in Southern Africa, Robert Brandon-Kirby). It offers self-sustaining populations of Brown and Rainbow Trout in the midst of an unspoiled wilderness. The lake varies in depth from about 1 - 2 meters over the shallows, down to 14 meters in the channel and the main basin.

As a by-product, the Giants Cup hatchery also produces a couple of tons per month of table products. All fish, except for cold-smoked products, are supplied fresh and vacuum packed for added shelf life. Table products include whole rounds, deboned rounds, fillets, hot oak-smokedand cold oak-smoked.
