Vryheid Accommodatie

Vryheid is a coal mining and cattle farming town in the Zululand region of KwaZulu Natal (KZN). It lies approximately 70 kilometres north east of Dundee.

The town lies in the heart of KZN's historic battlefield region, where many clashes took place between the local Zulu population (of which King Shaka is the most often mentioned member) and various outsiders. One of the battles to occur near Vryheid is the infamous Battle of Blood River, which took place between the Boers and the Zulus in 1838. There are also battle sites from the Anglo Boer War in the area.

There are also many historic buildings dotted about town, 2 of which are schools, Vryheid Comprehensive Secondary School and Inkama High School, which were awarded this status in 2007. Other historical buildings include the Dutch Reformed Church and the Oud Raadsaal (old council chambers).

Vryheid lies near the sources of 4 major rivers: the Black Umfolozi River, White Umfolozi River, Pongolo River and the Mkhuze River. Subsequently, wetlands in the area are plentiful and form habitats for a variety of bird species making this town great for bird watching. This lush terrain also provides plenty of interesting views for hikers.

There are numerous game reserves in the area too, giving one the opportunity to get a glimpse of South Africa's famous wildlife. Reserves in the area boast animals like cheetah, rhino, elephant, brown and spotted hyena, giraffe, leopard and a variety of antelope species.

The town's name, 'Vryheid' means liberty or freedom in Afrikaans. The climate in the area is considered sub-tropical so expect hot, humid summers and warm, drier winters.

Vryheid Recensies

Vryheid
Overnight stop only wish we had more time to explore.
Had the best meal in a long time at the Spur.

- Lynne Alexander

Vryheid
I wish I had more time to see all the tourist sites in Vryheid. I learned from brochures in my room about things worth seeing. Next time I will plan my trip to allow for this.
- Geordie Pilkington

Vryheid
Wow ! It was our first time visit to the town - so impressed - clean, friendly people and very, very impressive. Could not believe how clean the streets were on a Saturday evening after a busy Saturday morning shopping session. Admired the beautiful lit up stone church in town which I have subsequently posted on facebook as the most beautiful church I have ever seen. Will for sure be back in Vryheid and have recommended to many friends to take the time to visit such a beautiful, peaceful town. We had to travel to the rural area of Vryheid for business and again found the residents to be so welcoming. We presented the Vryheid rural church community with a non-electric brick making machine so that the community can start making their own bricks to build houses. They were ecstatic with happiness and blessed my husband and I for opening new doors to their community. We will be back in 2 months time, once they have built up a stock of inter-stacking bricks so that we can show them how to build their houses. We left Vryheid with warm content hearts and will return with the same. What an experience !!!

Vryheid
Vryheid is a charming little town. With its intriguing history I wished I had more time to get acquainted. However in my short visit I was impressed by how friendly the people I met were. Next time I'm in the area I will give myself at least two days to cycle the nature reserve, to see some of the battle fields and to visit some of my new friends again.
