DullstroomApprox. Time: 4 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Dullstroom dates back to the early 1880's when Dutch Settlers made their way to the place of "eternal mist".

Dullstrom is only 2,5 hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and en route to the Kruger National Park. The town and its surrounds is renowned for its flyfishing, but those who do not participate in this noble pastime have the wonderful environment to enjoy.

Numerous walking trails exist through some of the most beautiful areas of the Mpumalanga Highveld.

The town is situated at 2100 m above sea level, making this one of the highest towns in the country. Close by, on the Steenkampsberg, the highest tarred road in old Transvaal at 2250 m links the towns of Roossenekal and Lydenburg.

Dullstroom is also only place in South Africa where elm and beech trees grow in any number, and is also home to the Verlorenvallei Nature Reserve. Verlorenvallei is the only South Africa reserve where all three crane species are found in combination with many other feathered species. The area also cultivates about 50 species of ground orchids and has large dairy and cheese factory just outside the town.
