1. Delmas

The small farming town of Delmas is situated within the Mpumalanga province, only a short 45-minute drive from Johannesburg. Delmas may have been around for over 100 years, but it warm and friendly faming community and fresh clean air hasn’t changed one bit! Visitors are always greeted by the locals with genuine smiles and true helpfulness.

The Dam provides many…
