Activities at Lomas Creek Country Cottages

 

Lomas Creek at the foot of the Steenkampsberg pass is a portion of the original farms belonging to the Steenkamp family, who settled there between 1847 and 1851. On the farm is a small stone walled cemetery with family graves.

Also is the original ox wagon pass which meanders up a slope into wattle woods.

This is a excellent walk with marvelous views of the higher peaks not seen from the tarred road.

Lomas Creek is also part of the De Berg Conservancy.

Visitors are welcome at the country pub need to be booked in advance.

 

Lomas Creek is situated 12ks from the highest peak in Mpumalanga, and can be walked from the guest house.
