A Fly Fisherman's Dream
Copperleigh Trout Cottages
Situated in the beautiful upper Dargle area of the Midlands of Kwazulu Natal, our farm is about 30km from the town of Howick, and 22km from Boston (make sure you’ve packed enough groceries!). You will have to travel on both tar and gravel roads, but the gravel road is generally very good and any vehicle should be fine to drive on it.
We are listed on GoogleMaps, search for: “Copperleigh Trout Cottages”.
**NB - Please take note that if you are travelling on the N3 from Gauteng heading towards Howick, GoogleMaps will take you off the highway too early along a much longer route via Nottingham Road and the Fort Nottingham gravel road. Rather stay on the N3 highway until you see the “Howick\Tweedie” offramp and take that – then you should be able to follow your GoogleMaps the rest of the way with ease.
* Coming from Durban, from the N3 highway near the town of Howick in KZN, take the Howick/Tweedie exit and turn left to head away from Howick towards Lions River (R107). If coming from Johannesburg then take the Howick/Tweedie exit and turn right to head towards Lions River.
* At the T-Junction (R103), turn right. Continue straight, drive through the small town of Lions River, head over the bridge which crosses the Lions River, then look out for the Dargle/Impendle (P134) road on your left hand side, turn left. If you see Piggly Wiggly shopping area you've gone too far.
* Continue straight on the Dargle/Impendle road (P134) for +-20km, do not turn off anywhere.
* Eventually it will become a gravel road (P130). Continue for about another 7km.
* Look out for the Boston/Everglades turnoff, then turn left onto that road (P132).
* Continue straight. You’ll see a smaller white Copperleigh signboard first, don’t turn into that entrance as the farm gate is locked, you need to drive for 950m and look for the large 'Copperleigh Trout Cottages' signboard on your left and turn in there. Continue down the driveway until you see the signs for either the cottage or the cabin once you are through the electric gate. Let us know when you have arrived so we can come and meet and greet you.
