Activities/Attractions: Haenertsburg is an attractive village in a beautiful mountain setting with craft shops, stained glass studio, tea gardens, restaurant, pub, and several excellent nurseries nearby. It is renowned for its glorious profusion of flowering cherries and azaleas in the spring and the Cherry blossom festival in late September and early October has become an unusual pilgrimage for tourists. Known as the capital of the ''Land of the Silver mist ", you can enjoy the spectacular mountain views!
Tzaneen is situated in the foothills of the impressive Wolkberg (Cloud Mountain), the mountain reaches of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Tzaneen is the ideal centre from which to explore the region. Within easy reach, the visitor can find archeological sites, the biggest Baobab tree, wildlife and nature reserves and full range of quality tourism facilities and services, catering for all needs and interests of the visitor. Its unique natural scenery provides the most beautiful background for all the recreational and the tourism products and services in the country. Tzaneen is also a birders paradise!
Trout fishing is offered in three dams on the property and at an owned property on the Broederstroom - 10 minutes drive. Fishing can also be arranged in the waters of the local Trout Fishing Association. Forest, riverside and garden walks can be undertaken from the property and hiking, mountain bike, horse and 4x4 trails are in close proximity.
The Kruger National Park Northern gates are only an hour and a half’s drive away on good roads and therefore, Cheerio is an ideal stop over to the Kruger and other private game parks.
"We only stayed overnight - arrived at about 2.00p.m. on Friday 18th May 2007 and were welcomed by Carol who is really a fantastic person. Later I took a walk through the gardens and meet up with Carol who also introduced me to her husband who was also very friendly. The chalet also has everything one wants in it. We had a braai that evening and just sat watching the sun go down. It really was lovely and very quiet. As we had just come from the Kruger National Park this was an ideal place to rest overnight and then carry on with our journey back home to Alberton. We are planning holiday to the Kruger National Park next year in May again and we will (if there is accommodation available) be booking in on our way down and back. I have told all my friends about the place and hope they will all follow our footsteps in the near future."
"Very pleasant stay. Carol and her husband very supportive and friendly."
"Cheerio Farm is in a beautiful part of the country, we would like to go back when the weather is better, we had a very cold night and woke up to a cold, damp foggy morning. Our hostess Carol was very nice and provided us with an adequate breakfast. We were in Rainbow chalet, it was very comfortable and had everything you would need for a self-catering weekend. The best was a lovely log fire which we really enjoyed as it was so cold."
"We came straight here after our flight from the US. What a pleasant and perfect place to stay enroute to the Kruger Park. The owner could not have been more delightful (Carol). And we shall definitely recommend this to our friends and would love to return."
"Very peaceful and quite. Clean, neat and refreshing forest environment. Easy forest walking trails."
General Information: Welcome to the peace and tranquility of Cheerio Trout Fishing Lodge and escape from the pressure of the big city. We are situated in the beautiful Cheerio Valley in Limpopo, South Africa, home of the annual Magoebaskloof Spring Cherry Blossom and Azalea Fair. Cheerio is surrounded by the impressive Wolkberg - the southern tip of the Drakensberg Mountains and pine and indigenous forests. It is close to Broederstroom and Letaba rivers and the Ebenezer, Magoebaskloof and Dap Naude dams. It lies halfway between Polokwane (Pietersburg) and Tzaneen.
Enjoy the serenity of the mountains from your private accommodation nestled amongst beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. Awake to the songs of birds and listen to the forest owls as you retire for the night. On a still day, you will hear the call of the fish eagles nesting at Stanford Lake. If you are up early, you may just see a bush buck or duiker in the forest and some guests have been fortunate to see the otters catching their morning breakfast in the dam.
If it's fresh mountain air and sparkling mountain rivers you are looking for, to just relax or experience adventure activities, with sunshine or silver mist, unpolluted clear starry skies and evenings around a crackling log fire, come to Cheerio. You’ll want to return often with family and friends to share your enjoyment.
In this haven for nature lovers, fishermen, bird watchers, hikers and adventure addicts you can fish, walk through scenic gardens or visit the nearby river. For those who are keen on action and adventure, this will be arranged for you. You can play tennis, table tennis, and darts or just relax at the swimming pool. You can also visit some of the local attractions as well as tea gardens and craft shops and end an eventful day on a sunset boat trip on the Ebenezer.
