Located more than 2000m above sea level, Dullstroom experiences a winter unlike any other in South Africa. Although chiller than most local travellers are used to, there is a distinct charm to this quaint town during the colder months.
Situated just 15km away, Walkersons Hotel & Spa has been uniquely designed to highlight the very best features of this season. Whether it be a misty morning fly-fishing, an evening spent by the fire, or indulging in a steaming plate of comfort food from the world-class restaurant, it is the setting for an unforgettable winter getaway in South Africa.
An Abundance of Fireplaces
Each of the 25 Lakeside, Luxury Lakeside, Manor and Honeymoon Suites at Walkersons Hotel & Spa boast inviting open fireplaces, ideal for keeping the winter chills at bay. Cosy up in front of the kindles with a cup of tea in hand, or a glass of wine from the well-stocked mini-bar and enjoy a relaxing night-in.
The fireside intimacy of the restaurant at Walkersons is a major draw for guests during the winter months, where guests can experience the 7-course culinary journey in the evenings beside a smouldering fire.
Activities to Work up a Sweat
Set on the sprawling 800 hectare Walkersons estate in Dullstroom, Walkersons Hotel & Spa features a vast array of activities available for guests to partake in. From long walks along contoured pathways, or mountain biking along a 1780m trail, to a lengthy work out in the state-of-the-art gym or a horse riding session along the river, there are many ways to get your heart pumping.
The best time for fly-fishing in South Africa is from May to September, during winter, and Dullstroom is the fly-fishing capital of the country, so what better place to fish-away the winter blues than the Walkersons Hotel.
Hot Stone Massages, a Steam Room & a Hydro Bath
The Amani Spa at Walkersons offers many ways for guests, and day visitors, to both warm-up their bodies and soothe away the stress of everyday life.
The Amani Steam package from the Luxurious Body Collection combines a stint in the steam room with the application of an exfoliating body mask. The Amani Hydro Bath and Massage package allows you to soak your worries away in the heated hydro path, followed shortly by a relaxing full body massage. Last, but not least, the Lefika Hotstone treatment is the ideal way to ease muscle aches and tension whilst raising your core body temperature.
Delectable Winter Dishes
Fight back against the winter blues with a mouth-watering meal (or several) at the Walkersons Hotel & Spa restaurant. Opt for a steaming bowl of porcini and brown mushroom soup, seared beef fillet set on butternut, biltong and feta risotto, rainbow trout with apricot cous cous, a juicy lamb burger, and much more.
