Mount Anderson is a magnificent 20,000-acre private game reserve set high in the dramatic mountain landscape of Mpumalanga just outside Lydenburg.  It is an idyllic retreat for multi-generational families and small groups – proving to be one of the most exciting and unique destinations on offer in South African travel itineraries.  The property offers spectacular scenery and breath-taking views whilst carrying rare and endangered mountain wildlife as well as some of the most unique vegetation in the country.    Mount Anderson is all about the rare opportunity of reconnecting again and feeling one with nature.  Guests enjoy game drives, walks, hikes, picnics, swimming at our lakes or waterfalls, fishing, canoeing, mountain-biking and horse-riding all in the company of our expert guides.   The reserve is also steeped in a kaleidoscope of history and guests are taken on fascinating ‘journeys’ from the Stone Age and Ancient African period through to Anglo-Boer War and frantic Gold Rush mining days

In a secluded valley overlooking crystalline trout ponds, the luxurious farmhouse, Golden Cottage, offers five en-suite bedrooms.  The rambling farmhouse is perfectly equipped and guests enjoy personal unobtrusive service by a small discreet team of dedicated staff who ensure their guests’ every need is catered for.    Successfully proclaimed in 1990 as South Africa’s first-ever private mountain water catchment reserve, Mount Anderson is a classic conservation story and protects some of the major river catchments that are the lifeblood of the Kruger National Park, agricultural farms downstream and local communities.  This kind of sustainable tourism is more crucial than ever before. 

A 20,000-acre private game reserve outside Lydenburg set in a rugged mountain landscape carrying rare mountain wildlife and unique vegetation, the “Mount Anderson” experience offers families and friends the rare opportunity to reconnect with each other and nature in the most magnificent surroundings.  Always accompanied by experienced guides, guests enjoy game drives, mountain walks, fishing and, for the more adventurous,  mountain-biking and horse-riding.  At the end of the day, the luxurious 5-bedroomed lodge awaits, an evening spent chatting around the fire under the African sky with dedicated staff on hand to ensure a very personal and memorable stay.
