Only 2 hours from Gauteng, en route to the Kruger National Park, lies the tranquil little village of Dullstroom.
As the highest village in South Africa, situated at 2100m above sea level in the Steenkampsberg range, the town dates back to the early 1880’s, when Dutch settlers came to the area.
Dullstroom has become synonymous with Trout-Fishing – hosting yearly competitions and luring fishing enthusiasts from all over the country, and the world. But it has also become much more than that.
It has become a haven for artists and musicians. Foodies from all over flock to dine in some of the quirkiest, quaintest and bespoke restaurants the country has to offer. Fitness fanatics take advantage of the sub-alpine climate to train here for months at end. Outdoor lovers roam our misty hills on mountain bikes or walking- and jogging trails for adventurous weekends. And romantics cuddle in-front of roaring fireplaces on cool, misty evenings.
Be sure to bring your binoculars as the area is also a well-known as habitat for three endangered cranes, a vast variety of wild flowers and rare species of mammals – a true paradise for the nature lover.
