Wakkerstroom Jewel of Mpumalanga.
Above the town rises Voortrekkerkop – locally referred to as Ossewakop – and its twin Scotch Hill. People say that this peak, and Scotch Hill, inspired Sir Ryder Haggard, who sometimes stayed in Wakkerstroom in the 1870’s. In his best-selling adventure novel, King Solomon’s Mines, he describes two enormous lava-covered volcanic mountains, called Sheba’s Breasts.
