Nooitgedacht

A gem amongst Mountains of gold

It serves as more of a stopover on the way to the Kruger and is regularly outshined by its sister town, Dullstroom. However, nestled in between the goldfields of the Steenkampsberg and Mauchsberg mountain ranges is a true gem – the Nooitgedacht Trout Lodge & Hatchery. ANTON WILLEMSE JNR reveals more.
