What to Expect on a Day Tour:

A Self-drive one-day experience starting in Dullstroom at 0800.  Gerhard will meet you in the town of Dullstroom where he will give an overview of the South African Wars history.  The day’s events will take you to sites where the SA Wars progressed through the area around 1900 to 1901. You will drive just out of Belfast to visit the site of the Battle of Bergendal where the progression of the battle is described in detail.  Then return to Belfast for a quick stop at one of the oldest monuments in the Transvaal for the Great Trek.  Then along the Wit Rante, to discuss the advances that took place there, and visit an outlook position held by the Boer’s for the majority of the war where they were able to observe British forces movements. A light lunch at Greystone Lodge is followed by a visit to the British Graves at Groot Suikerbosh Kop. The day is concluded at the Dullstroom Inn for a final question session and some coffee and tea in the oldest Inn in Dullstroom.

Further history day tours available include a tour to Lydenburg, to Long Tom Pass, in and around Dullstroom and the Steelpoort Valley.

Absolute Leisure Cottages and Battlefields of the Escarpment Tours looks forward to welcoming you to the Mpumalanga Highlands.

Gerhard will be your host and guide during your adventure with FFF Safaris.
