Dullstroom is a village in Mpumalanga where gumboots and Woolly Bugger rule. The air is crisp and has a fresh bite to it, reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands. This is the trout triangle of the country, luring eager anglers who cast their lines into bountiful lakes.
Residing in the grassy plateaus of the Steenkampsberg mountains, this fly-fishing village radiates charm. Its lush surroundings shelter three endangered species of crane and a profusion of wild flowers that intermittently sprout amid rocky outcrops. Hike the mountains in search of hidden waterfalls or horse ride through the countryside. For the not-so-lucky, there is the never-ending pleasure of fishing, cooking, nature and trout talk.
Local poker players gather at The Dullstroom Inn, testing their skills in front of the roaring winter fire while a generous pub lunch sizzles in the pan. An evening at the inn will treat guests to stories of the 1989 treasure hunt and their Guinness World Record attempt. Old stokers will offer visitors a taste of home-brewed moonshine, while three resident whisky fanatics offer ‘Wild about Whisky’ tours. The Vygenhoek Organic Spa is a welcome escape, rejuvenating guests with their natural ‘green’ treatments.
