The Owls Nook is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Enjoy the peace and solitude of the water and bird life on your doorstep. We have a collection of different canoes, kayaks and paddle ski's for the guests to use.

Guests must bring their own ice, charcoal and towels.


Albert Falls is regarded as one of South Africas premiere fishing destinations for bass, carp, barbel and tilapia. The bay in front of the cottage is a bird conservancy, and you will see a wide range of birds, ranging from the small exquisitely coloured Malachite Kingfisher, through to the majestic African Fish Eagle with its unmistakable call. 

This venue will provide the perfect venue for a couple who enjoy nature, and just chilling. The Owls Nook is secluded, peaceful and quiet. The views are breathtaking, and there are safe walks around the dam, or cycle routes.
