Paulpietersburg, Battlefields, N.Natal - Things to do

OVERVIEW:

Paulpietersburg is said to be the healthiest town in South Africa, because of its excellent climate and the naturally high quality of its water which has attracted two spring-water bottling plants to the area.
The town, which lies at the base of eDumbe Mountain, has a distinctly German character. The German influence dates back to the 19th century, when Lutheran missionaries and colonists founded settlements at Luneburg, Braunschweig and Augsburg near the town. German tourists enjoy visiting the area nowadays, taking delight in the local inhabitant's quaint mixtures of 19th century and modern custom. Luneburg is known for its excellent German butchery.

One of the best known attractions in the area is the Natal Spa resort and conference centre with its nine hot and cold mineral water pools. The invigorationg and healing qualities of hot mineral water are well documented. It boasts "triple waters" which means they contain carbonates, chlorides and sulphates and the temperature at source is 40℃ as well as a "Support Tube". Today, it has a super tube and makes for an experience of top quality.

Paulpietersburg has the largest collection of grass orchids in South Africa. These bloom in December and Photographic and nature tours are run by local guide, Horst Filter. Horst also organizes trips in 4X4 vehicle to the Engodini Crater, high up in the mountains where visitors can take a dip in a mountain stream and view Bushman paintings.

Trips to the Pongola River offer visitors a chance to see samango monkeys. The local guides know the flora and fauna, and can identify the trees in the indigenous forest of the Pongola Bush Reserve, in which the river rises. The river also provides good flyfishing for the indigenous yellow fish. But there is more to Paulpietersburg than fishing and hiking, and the horse trails at Wagendrift Game Park offer a wonderful opportunity for the visitor to get close to nature. Horse riding is offered by the farm holiday resort, Dusk to Dawn.
