The entire town of Pilgrim?s Rest has been declared a national monument. This quaint town came into being during the 1880s after gold deposits were discovered along the banks of the Pilgrim?s Creek River. A walk through this town provides a fascinating glimpse into what life was life during the gold digging days in South Africa. The graveyard is a must-see for its historic gravesites, like the robber?s grave. The buildings take one back to another era and the Royal Hotel in particular, keeps the stately glory of yesteryear living alive even today. Not too far from Pilgrim?s lie some of the most spectacular scenic vistas in the country.
Directions: The town of Pillgrim's Rest is situated in the Mpumalanga Province East of Johannesburg. It is mainly being reached when traveling towards the Kruger National Park.
