Just a little more than a two-hour drive from Pretoria lies one of the coldest town’s South Africa, namely Belfast. But despite its chilly weather you would be hard-pressed to find a more homely and warm-hearted community.
Belfast is well known for its cattle, dairy and sheep farming and the fact that it has the oldest bluegum plantation in South Africa. Avid fishermen are very familiar with Belfast thanks to its excellent fishing opportunities. The cold rivers, streams and its six well-stocked dams promoting good trout and bass growth, provide excellent fishing that attracts anglers from across the country - even the world. The combination of prime fishing and stunning scenery make Belfast a perfect fishing holiday destination.
Belfast is one of the most naturally beautiful locations you’ll visit and because of this, it is heralded as one of the most popular tourist destinations for those who love nature and the outdoors. There are plenty of hiking trails, allowing you to view the beauty that this area has to offer, up close and personal. There are many beautiful gardens and the tulip nursery is well known and a definite must see.
