Through the wild rugged scenery of the Drakensberg Mountains in Mpumalanga, flows one of the finest trout fishing stream on the country.
Here, on the banks of the beautiful Spekboom nestles Highland Run Fly Fishing Estate, the perfect habitat for both trout and fishermen.
Forming part of the Mount Anderson Water Catchment Reserve, Highland Run is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including many species of antelope and the elusive leopard.
Those ablr to tear themselves away from the five kilometres of rapids, riffles, runs, glides and pools can hike in the reserve, in the company of over 100 hundred species of highveld avifauna, The magic Spekboom Valley accessed via a 17km dirt road near Lydenburg, still bears relics of its romantic gold-rush days.
