Two dwellings and hundreds of hectares of grazing in the Roodekrans Game Reserve in the heart of the Rhenosterspruit Nature Conservancy went up in smoke on the weekend of 30 and 31 August. Large areas in Hills and Dales and parts of Vlakfontein were also in flames. The northern part of Roodekrans and properties in Hennops River were burnt black earlier this winter. These were some of the worst fires in the RNC in decades.
The RNC has a fascinating history – both ancient and recent. This tour will cover recent history (Anglo-Boer War and amaNdebele), Late Iron Age sites and early Stone Age remains. (Limited numbers)
