Dullstroom, a charming village nestled in the Mpumalanga Highlands, is a mere 2.5 hours drive from Gauteng and conveniently situated halfway to the Kruger Park. Given its altitude at 2100m above sea level, it is the highest village in South Africa and has become a very popular training base for top European athletes during the summer months.

Dullstroom is known for its crystal clear dams, perfect for trout fishing and popular outdoor activities include not only fly-fishing but also hiking, mountain biking and an array of other adventure sports. The town also boasts an Ernie Els designed championship golf course.

Culture is abundant here with true culinary experiences. Numerous excellent restaurants, coffee shops, craft-beer brewery, and a world-renowned whiskey bar and eclectic pubs all form part of this relaxed village. We support a significant arts community – and is an escape for artists, writers and musicians. Come out and play in this unique African jewel.

The lockdown has shaken us all up! But we’ve ruffled those feathers and moved to a smaller, (yet cuter) shop at the top end of town. Click on the button to get the map, it’s as easy as one of those BarOne milkshakes at the Milkshake Bar! 

By acting responsibly, we can maintain Dullstroom as a wide-open safe haven and source of inspiration.
