Muldersdrift, only 10 km from Krugersdorp, is a cosy village nestling in the comforting arms of the Magaliesberg mountain range.
Adventure And Sport
4×4: The Bella Vallata 4×4 Playground is a 5-km off-road track only 30 min drive from Johannesburg and is an ideal place for those 4×4 owners who never have time to leave the city and explore the untamed wilds of Africa. The obstacles on the tracks were designed to test the drivers to the limits of their skills and to provide valuable training.
Art And Crafts
Crocodile Arts and Crafts Ramble: The Crocodile Ramble is regarded as one of the best art and craft routes in South Africa. It has its information office in Muldersdrift. More than 20 studios that sell everything, including pottery, sculptures, paintings, woodwork, jewellery, porcelain dolls, candles, lacework and clothing, line the route. There are also numerous tea gardens, guesthouses, and game and nature reserves. The route also encompasses the area known as the “Cradle of Humankind”, an area that has seen great Palaeoanthropological discoveries since 1947 and that caused a world-renowned breakthrough in the search for the origins of mankind, now a proclaimed World Heritage Site. Maps are obtainable from any of the venues on the route. The Crocodile Ramble is divided into four routes, the first route includes the Sterkfontein Caves, the second passes Lesedi Cultural Village, the third passes the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve and the Heia Safari Ranch and the fourth route includes the Witwatersrand National Botanical Gardens.
