Wakkerstroom Hotel


We take pride in using only the finest, farm-fresh local ingredients. We also have a passion for presentation, so don’t be surprised if your delicious pub meal arrives looking like something out of a fine food restaurant! Meals can be enjoyed outside on the veranda overlooking the scenic town square, on the patio in our secluded garden in view of the children’s outdoor play area, or in either of our indoor dining areas with cosy pub and roaring log fires in winter.
Really loved the atmosphere and the food was out of this world, Thanks Country-Inn! Will see you soon on my next trip.

Stopped by the Country-Inn restaurant on my way home from a hunting trip and the fast service was appreciated. Food served hot, drinks served cold. Thanks for the great servise guys!

We stayed at the Hotel last summer as a family trip and we were amazed by how the staff treat the children – will definitely recommend Hotel as a family holiday location.

Nearby Activities

Lüneberg Circle Drive
The route between Wakkerstroom and Lüneberg offers some of the most spectacular views that you will see anywhere. Take a packed picnic or stop off at the Whistling Duck’s Coffee shop for traditional German hospitality.
Pony rides, hiking and a lovely kiddies playground awaits you. Why not take the tar road there and the dirt road back for two very different experiences. The drive is about 40 minutes to an hour each way.
Sight Seeing
Wakkerstroom Wetland Reserve

– Wakkerstroom is home to the largest        population of threatened bird species in South Africa, and one of South Africa’s premier birding locations.

Other species that can be seen include Rudd’s Lark, Botha’s Lark, Yellow-breasted Pipit, Blue Korhaan, Southern Bald Ibis and all 5 species of Harrier bird found in South Africa.

Day Trips


Ossewakop (“Ox Wagon Hill”) looms above the small Mpumalanga town of Wakkerstroom on its eastern side, the peak approximately 400 metres higher than the settlement. It is impossible to miss, as some enterprising residents have created the large outline of a Voortrekker wagon and the dates “1838 – 1938” (to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great Trek) with whitewashed rocks on the slopes just below the summit. The route up the mountain is difficult and torturous, so please read the cautionary notes before embarking on this trip. The remarkable views over the town and its surrounds from the beacon on top of the mountain certainly make the effort to get up there worthwhile.

Bulletproof 4×4


– Mud, water and extreme adventure.  Bakkies and off-road bikes can push their limits in this unfilled track of mud. 

Owl & Hare Craft Brewery


– Owl & Hare offers a wide variety of craft beer with unique dishes. The Bar itself is a sight to be seen with out o this world funky decorations.

Historical Landmarks
Anglo Boer War Site

– A little away of from the main route you will find the cemetery and this memorial site dedicated to British soldiers who died in battle during the Anglo Boer War, sad also is to note the mentioning of drowning amongst the soldiers. Quiet place and being close to the bird sanctuary you can hear bird song and experience stillness as only sites of this kind can provide.

Biking & Hiking
Currently there are three historic walks, namely the War Memorial, the Harvey Greenacre’s and the Court House. There is also a nature trail focused in the Wetland Reserve which looks at the indigenous fauna and flora which will whet your appetite to explore a little more and visit the hides to do some birding.
Trading Post
