    Default Recommendation for big dog friendly getaway

    I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback that we would like to take with us on a holiday in December now that it looks like covid restrictions are relaxing.

    Any recommendations for somewhere up to 4 to 5 hrs from Joburg? We are happy to do farm cottages/camping.

    Thanks

    Field & Stream Dullstroom.
    Farmstall and the 2 bed Room offers dog friendly accommodation IIRC.
    Went there Dec 2016. Had a blast. Lots of quality Rainbow in the trophy dam. Also nice scenic picnic spot next to the river. Had to use 4x4 to get out after the skies came pouring down.
    Ask for Greg the owner.

    My problem too, not rotties, but I need a fenced scenario, otherwise my one dog will start running and only stop when her heart stops beating. Most places are pet friendly, by are free roaming and with other dogs.

    We've stayed at Little Troutbek near Dullstroom. Pet friendly. Plenty dams to fish in, nice walks on the farm. Dogs had a blast there.
