Bronkhorstspruit Snapshot

About 50km east of Pretoria along the N4 Highway sits the little town of Bronkhorstspruit. Being such a short drive from both Pretoria and Witbank, it makes for a nice and easy impulsive weekend break from the urban treadmill. Established in 1858 with the arrival of a group of Voortrekkers, Bronkhorstspruit was originally named Kalkoenkransrivier - it was only in 1897 that the South African Republic formally approved the town. Not only is it a convenient weekend destination, the town plays host to the Nan Hua Temple, the largest Buddhist Temple in the Southern Hemisphere. Namaste.

Things To Do

  • For the adrenaline junkie in you, Kungwini has a collection of 4x4 trails ranging from mild to wild. The trail runs through the eastern-most part of the Magaliesberg, past koppies and a few beautiful African ruins.

  • Die Sinkshack is a restaurant, bar, live entertainment venue and guest house. Wash down your ice cold beer with live acoustic music and a relaxed vibe.

  • For your art fix, the Anton Smit Sculpture Park is a must. Set against a backdrop of natural rock formations, manicured laws and succulent gardens overlooking the Bronkhorstspruit Dam, you can enjoy an extensive collection of sculptures and installations. There is also an on-site coffee shop that's open daily.

  • The Nan Hua Temple is your go-to for a peaceful soul-searching weekend retreat - just the antidote for the frazzled city soul.
