HISTORY OF BATTLE CREEK
The game farm situated in the Magaliesburg – named Battle Creek – is aptly named with a history of being part of the many battlefields for soldiers colliding during 1899 WWII, until the 19th Century. On what used to be President Paul Kruger’s private hunting farm, this area has old forts and ruins that can still be seen scattered around the property today. The farm, which forms part of the Cradle of Humankind, is rich in history of each and every battle fought and is now a tranquil abyss of interesting archeology, land, bush and beast.
Walk in the footsteps of intense history and enter a world lapped in luxurious accommodation and activities for the whole family while adding alluring hunting safari adventures of a lifetime.
