This weekend we took a road trip, it took just over 3 hours from where we live, as we ventured on the National road, 2 toll gates later, munching on some snacks, having great conversation about Random topics, this kept the trip manageable, the excitement started building as the sign ahead marked Dullstroom, we have seen many pictures, started wondering if they lived up to the reviews and views, pictured above its truly a majestic view! So yes, it does live up to the standard and more!
10 km past the Dullstroom town, we took the turnoff onto the winding road, followed the path that led us pass a landing strip, trout dams, birds, horses, as well as the Spa and set into checking into the breath-taking 22-year old Walkersons Hotel & Spa.
