A question often asked is "Where are you?" The only way we can explain this is to say, if you were in Dullstroom and jumped off the mountain, you would land in our gorge (Box canyon). Dullstroom is on top of our mountain range! Lydenburg is to the east, 35kms away. View the Google Map above to see where we are situated.
We are on the R36 (Schoemanskloof Bypass Road), Mpumalanga, South Africa.
