Lydenburg
Lydenburg lies in a fertile valley between the Steenkampsberg mountains and the Mauchsberg on the Mpumulanga escarpment of the Drakensberg mountain range.
The town was founded in 1849 by the Voortrekkers when their numbers were being decimated by malaria in the Ohrigstad valley, further to the north. They moved to Lydenburg where the climate was healthy, bracing and malaria-free.

The Greater Lydenburg area is steeped in history. Iron Age remains and ruins have been linked to those in Zimbabwe, and the "Lydenburg Heads", replicas of which can be seen in the excellent small museum, are some of the exciting archeological finds made in this area. Wars were fought across the mountains and valleys, leaving deep traces, amongst which was the Anglo-Boer War in 1899 - the Long Tom Pass was named after the cannon which the Boers used to try and dislodge the British from Lydenburg.

Whilst Lydenburg is an ideal stop-over en route to the Kruger Park, there is so much to see that a longer stay is warranted. Numerous hiking and nature trails, birding, visiting historic sites, some of the best all year round flyfishing in South Africa for trout, carp, bass, barbel and yellow-fish, mountain biking, as well as clear starry skies for amateur astronomers, are some of the activities which can be pursued.

Guest houses, lodges, B&B establishments, self-catering cottages and a caravan park offer a wide and varied range of accommodation; "eating out" is becoming a pleasurable event with new venues opening in the town, and supplies of fresh produce, first-grade meat and quality fruit are readily available for self-catering families.
