Cheerio Trout Fishing Lodge is situated in the beautiful Cheerio Valley, home of the annual Magoebaskloof Spring cherry blossom and azalea show. It is surrounded by the Wolkberg mountains and pine and indigenous forests. It lies between Pietersburg and Tzaneen and is an excellent stop over to the Kruger and other game parks.
