Vrede/Memel 

Set secluded in the Langberg mountains overlooking the trout dam in a deep kloof with spectacular views over the Vrede farm-lands and Witkoppen mountain range.  There are two chalets where the trout, hiking and mountain biking enthusiast will spend a few blissful days.  Each chalet can accommodate 8 people and has two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.  One is within walking distances of the trout dams, wooded ravines and mountain streams.  These chalets offer luxury accommodation for hikers who need a bit more comfort to hike the Langberg hiking trail.  There is also more than 50 kilometres for mountain bikers to enjoy whilst the farm offers caving as well as 6 bolted climbs for rock climbers.  Langberg Springs is approximately 200 km from Gauteng and could be a perfect stop over to the eastern coastal areas or a great weekend break.
