Dullstroom is the hub of the Mpumalanga Trout Triangle and as such is well-known and beloved by many, while to some it is an undiscovered gem. But for all, there is no better time to visit Dullstroom than at the Easter week-end when the village will be buzzing!
The cooler weather has brought sunny days and chilly nights, so bring a jacket! The restaurants will pull out all the stops with their best cuisine and fine wine and in some restaurants live entertainment will be offered. Cheese tasting, chocolate cups from the fountain in the chocolate shop and beer from the micro brewery will all be on offer. Fine art, mosaic, sculpture, pottery, glasswork, and beadwork will be well represented by talented local artists. At some centres, artists will be showing-off their creative talents and interacting with visitors.
Not to be missed is The Bird of Prey Centre has a wonderful display of birds in action and a great petting farmyard for the kiddies. There are also a number of excellent day spa’s in the area to pamper those in need of ultimate relaxation!
For those interested in trout-fishing, the waters are now cooling down and the fish are actively feeding, so this is an excellent opportunity to throw in a line. The many fly-fishing lodges in the Dullstroom area offer dam and river fishing for both novices to the sport and to fly-fishing enthusiasts.
Accommodation is booking up fast, so don’t delay in sourcing the right destination for your budget and family needs. Whether you require budget accommodation or five star luxury, Dullstroom is the place to be this Easter!
