Dullstroom, also known as Emnothweni is a small town in Mpumalanga province, South Africa, and along with Underberg, it is one of South Africa's premier flyfishing destinations. The town features the highest railway station in South Africa at 2,077m above sea level as well as at the foot of De Berg, the highest point in the province at 2,332m. The town lies 35km north of Belfast and some 53km south-west of Lydenburg.HistoryDullstroom was established in 1883 by Dutchman Wolterus Dull to settle Dutch immigrants. During the Second Boer War the town was destroyed and most of the settlers returned to the Netherlands.It was proclaimed on 9 October 1893 and named after a merchant from Amsterdam, Wolterus Dull, chairman of a committee which rendered assistance to families who had suffered losses during the First Anglo-Boer War. The element stroom, ‘stream’, refers to the Crocodile River nearby.ClimateDue to its high elevation, Dullstroom has a cold variation of subtropical highland climate . From October to April, the town sees a significant amount of rainfall, in contrast with winter, where precipitation lacks. Its relatively cool and temperate climate has made Dullstroom the only place in South Africa where beech and elm trees grow; who were originally planted by Dutch colonists.
