Volksrust Accommodation

The settlement known as Volksrust is a reasonably large town in the Mpumalanga wetland area ,and has a population just less than 25 000. It lies on the border with KwaZulu Natal at the meeting point of the R23 and N11 freeways. Its position on the border makes it an ideal stop-over when travelling from the interior to the KwaZulu Natal battlefields and onwards to the coast, but there are also some points of interest around the town itself.

The town is the commercial centre of an agricultural area, but is also historically rich with numerous Boer War battle sites within close proximity. The town's main industries however are beef, dairy, maize, sorghum, wool and sunflower seeds. Its mild climate with summer rainfall supports the crops grown in the area.

Volksrust, which means 'Citizens' Rest' in Dutch, was initially laid out across 4 farms in 1888, but was only officially proclaimed in 1889. It was given its own municipality in 1904. A site close to Volksrust was where one of the major battles of the 1st Anglo Boer War took place, and it's said that the victorious Boers rested there after the battle, hence the name.  In an unfortunate turn of events, Volksrust became the site of a British concentration camp in the second Anglo Boer War, where hundreds of Boer women and children were made to suffer. Today the best historical site to visit in the area is Majuba Hill, the site of the initial battle.

Close by there are also 4x4 and hiking trails, as well as a popular paragliding launch site.
