There is a lot to do at Emanzini Resort – from keeping your children entertained at the pool, to simply enjoying what nature has to offer.

Swimming Pool Area

At Emanzini Resort, a holiday would not be one without dipping into our pool in the hot summers. The half sized Olympic Pool is centrally located in the Resort, and also has a thatched lapa with tables and chairs for our guests with braai facilities. This is a wonderful place for families to have fun, with the adjoining baby pool as well as the childrens playground. We offer plenty shade under the thatches or trees.

Boating, Water Sports and Fishing

The resort’s dam is great for water skiing, stand up paddling and boating. PWC’s (Jetski’s) are allowed on the dam and we apply standard boating rules of the water when operating a PWC. Our launching facility includes a slipway which is good for any type of vehicle to launch.  Our small rental shop has a variety of life jackets, canoe, paddles and water ski equipment to hire. A valid Skippers Licence must be presented in order to launch your boat.  On the fishing front ,Carp are plentiful, as well as Barbel. Catch and release is encouraged.


Enjoying Nature and the Outdoors

Emanzini Resort is truly set in an idyllic place. With 35ha to enjoy, as well as views of the Langberg mountain and rolling farmlands, our guests enjoy early morning and evening walks with family and friends through the resort. Let the kids tag along on their bicycles! For water enthusiasts the reeds and spruit on both sides of the dam is an adventure to explore the abundant bird life – either by canoe, boat or stand up paddle board.


At the main entrance gate, we stock wood, charcoal, blitz, ice and braai grids for your convenience. The town of Vrede is just 8km away with a Butchery, Pharmacy, Liquor Store, Spar, General Dealer and the Ko-Op selling fishing tackle, camping equipment, spares, hardware and almost anything one could need!
