Walkerbouts Inn - Rhodes is a spacious haven with comfortable accommodation in 6 bedrooms with en-suite facilities, fine country cuisine and hospitality in the best traditions of the 'Platteland'. The relaxed and hospitable atmosphere makes it a veritable home-from-home. Walkerbouts is located in the historic village of Rhodes which is situated at the southernmost tip of the Drakensberg mountain range, 16km due south of the border with the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The village is more than 1800m above sea level, situated on the banks of the Bell River. Barkly East is 60km away on a narrow and winding gravel road that must be driven with care. Rhodes is a remote village almost frozen in time, a relic from the past. The unique nature of the architecture in the village finds it's origins in the Victorian era and is a compromise between fashion, availability of materials and practicality. As of July 1997 the village was proclaimed a National Monument.

Fly fishing for wild rainbow trout and indigenous yellowfish attracts visitors from both Southern Africa and further afield. (Mar-14).
