Dimalachite River Lodge is situated on the banks of the Vaal-river, close to Parys, in the Vredefort-Dome World Heritage Site. Dimalachite is named after the MALACHITE KING FISHER (Aloeda Cristata) that nests along the banks of the Vaal-river, surrounded by water, wild life and nature – where the call of the Fish Eagle can be heard from time to time.
Accommodation options range from three star lodges, regular chalets, camping sites on the riverbank and a youth hostel. Dimalachite River Lodge welcomes private families and friends, corporate clients, adventure seekers and school groups. Come and relax at the swimming pool, do bird watching, paddle on the river or enjoy the thrill of White water Rafting. Join us for a guided game drive, guided fishing trip, corporate team-building, conferencing or leadership camp. The kids can bring their bicycles, swim, play at the jungle gym, try the trampolines, play mini golf or do paint-ball target shooting. Enjoy your evenings with friends, family or colleagues on the riverbank around a camp fire. Our corporate clients can be sure of our best service, scrumptious meals (in the vintage boma or dining room) and great activities.
