Groenvlei Farm is what we consider to be the finest fly-fishing farm in the Dullstroom/Belfast area. It’s a pretty big statement to make, but one we to take very seriously.

There is more to Groenvlei Farm than simply an outstanding stillwater trout fishery. We offer superb family accommodation, a free-range egg production unit and of course Groenvlei is a working farm, actively specializing in scarce game and stud cattle.
