The mighty Olifants River combined with high temperatures can be described as South Africa's jewel of nature. It is almost a subtropical weather pattern but not quite as humid, where the vegetation is lush and a mixture of veld, bush and forest.
The properties in this part of the Highveld are mostly for the nature lover. Don't make the mistake of thinking you are in the bush that the property will lag behind. There are upmarket properties and designs which are very fashionable.
Lydenburg property value does not disappoint either. From the middle- to low income brackets to the high income brackets, investors have put their claim to a piece of the bush. A property valued at R1.8 mil will fetch its price and this as a popular holiday destination too. There is so much Lydenburg has to offer the holiday maker as well as the tourist.
At 2011, there were 37 2587 permanent residents in Lydenburg, making it by no means a small city.
This is the home and the resting place of Jock of the Bushveld, with his plaque and the story so rich with loyalty and love. Jock did roam the bush with his master James Percy Fitzpatrick. Jock was a Staffordshire bull terrier, tan in colour just like the bush. Mr Fitzpatrick was a transport rider on horseback for the post-office and Jock was his constant companion.
The drive from Pretoria towards the eastern Transvaal is hot and filled with eye-candy, including the Long Tom pass with its cascading waterfalls. This welcomes respite from a long journey. Lydenburg certainly is worth the trip.
Fly fishing and bass- and trout fishing is a favourite in the fresh and sparkling, clean and clear water. Lydenburg is a holiday destination all year round which caters for foreign and local tourists alike. If you are interested in investing in a holiday home you will not be disappointed when choosing Lydenburg.
The bush is calling and the time and conditions are more than favourable. Have a look at the properties on offer in Lydenburg for your own break away bushveld experience.
