Welcome to Emanzini Resort, Vrede

Emanzini Resort is privately situated on the banks of the Vrede dam in the Eastern Free State, just two hours’ drive from Johannesburg. Set in the rolling grasslands of the Eastern Free State, Emanzini Resort has great views of neighbouring farms and the Langberg Mountain. It’s the perfect holiday and weekend getaway destination for families wanting to experience the great outdoors, caravan & camping along the water’s edge, the dam at your footsteps, the best fishing in the area, boating, water sports, or just relaxing next to the pool.

With 40 caravan and camping sites, Emanzini Resort has the flexibility to accommodate your lodging needs. We have 31 waterfront camp sites at the water’s edge, with a variety of camp sites under the pine trees. Don’t have a tent or caravan? No problem!

Recreation facilities include a swimming pool with baby splash pool, children’s playground, boat launch slipway, restaurant and pub, functions hall, party lapa for family functions. At the confluence of two spruits, the dam is the creator of a wetland that now hosts a large variety of bird life. Explore this on your boat, canoe, or stand up paddle board. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the many recreational opportunities that abound nearby – golf (1km), squash (1km), hiking trails and caves (10km), and lion park (8km).
