Our motto: Hike more, worry less…

About

Here, embraced by the exquisite Langberg mountain, lies the secret to a weekend of equitation.

Langberg Breakaway offers a variety of facilities in one of the most accessible (150km from Gauteng) and tranquil retreats in the heart of the Highveld.

Visitors can enjoy trout fishing in well stocked dams or a yellowfish adventure in the "Spruit Sonder Drift".
