City Dullstroom

Dullstroom in Mpumalanga is South Africa's fly fishing place to be, located in the Steenkampsberg. Dullstroom is elevated and 2100 meters above sea level, which is a result of South Africa's highest village. Geographically, it lies between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park which makes it a perfect place for a stopover on the way to the Big Five. Located in the Highlands Meander - a beautiful piece of Mpumalanga - where the clear mountain rivers flow into lakes in the flatlands, which gives a breath-taking view.

In addition to fly fishing, it is also a place for still water and river fishing. Many farms have water dams and here you will discover many fish like rainbow and brown trout and make sure you have a fishing license!

Here you will find all three cranes the only place in South Africa. The Blue Crane, the Wattled Crane and Crowned Crane have their meals together. The Wattled Crane is a very rare bird seen in South Africa and, unfortunately threatened with extinction.

Near Dullstroom you can hike to the waterfalls, go mountain biking or horseback riding or have a picnic amid the murmur of water. Along the way you can enjoy the exuberant blooming wildflowers and possibly a glimpse of likeable small game. Or book a balloon ride and see the area from a different perspective.
