Giants Cup Wilderness ticked all the boxes. If you are into fly fishing, hiking or just looking for a weekend away this is the spot. The dam is the most scenic and stunning trout dam in the country with gin clear water and hard fighting trout.

Wonderful service, in a phenomenal setting. We stayed in a lovely secluded cottage, that had everything we needed. The staff are so friendly, and the freshly baked bread they delivered to us was an unexpected treat! Gorgeous views and utter relaxation in the midst of nature. Plenty of photo opportunities for the camera enthusiast, and beautiful walking trails. Herds of eland ambling along in the distance, and to experience that magical call of the jackal at the end of the day was the highlight of an incredible stay. Will definitely be back!! Would certainly recommend it to anyone.

We stayed for three nights. The cottages are well appointed, rustic as the setting requires and have all you need including being serviced. Tash was wonderful, attentive and so helpful. We were also provided with a fresh loaf of bread with pate which was both thoughtful and delicious. Giants cup is a piece of heaven. The views and tranquility are priceless. The trout dam is such a beauty and on day 3 the fish were biting! A very special place. Thanks so much. We will be back!
