Crystal Springs Resort
Crystal Springs Mountain Lodge is a picturesque resort built within a five thousand hectare countryside reserve. Crystal Springs is located at the top of the Robbers Pass on the old historic road leading to Pilgrim’s Rest in the Mpumalanga province. In the nature reserve – a grassland paradise encompassing rolling hills, cliffs, gorges, streams and waterfalls really creates a relaxed atmosphere away from the city buzz.
You will find plenty of birdlife and wild animals such as Leopard, Giraffe, Antelope, Wildebeest, Jackal and Zebra. Do not forget about the Five self guided walking trails within the reserve as well as the Trout Dam for Fly Fishing. There are four swimming pools here, of which the one at the restaurant is heated.
