Vryheid was founded in 1884 when Voortrekker settlers were granted a large area of land by the Zulu King Dinizulu. The Voortrekkers proclaimed the land as the Nieuwe Republiek, with Vryheid as its capital and Lucas Meijer as its president. The republic's parliament building, the raadsaal, and the town jail are well preserved relics of that time. Lucas Meijer's home is now a museum.
Our property offers undercover parking. Each room also comes with its own alarm, making sure that both you and your properly are safe and secure.
Villa Beryl hosts conferences of up to 30 people, and welcomes anyone who would like to use our facilities for photo opportunities such as wedding or matric farewell photos.
The Vryheid Hill Nature Reserve is on the edge of town and offers excellent bird watching opportunities in a beautiful conservation area. The reserve includes grasslands, rocky slopes, forests and mixed woodland and is able to support a wide variety of animals, birds and plant species.
Many private land owners offer hunting and game viewing with accommodation ranging from rustic to very upmarket. Vryheid has grown as a conference and event centre and delegates can combine their Safari experience with a visit to one of the natural mineral spa resorts in the area.
Just 2km south-west of the town on the Babanango road is the Klipfontein Bird Sanctuary, which includes a large wetland and provides a safe refuge for many rare and secretive wild waterbirds.
To the east are two special nature / wildlife areas; Ngome Forest and Ntendeka Wilderness and Ithala Game Reserve. The reserve is linked to the town by a good tarred road and also has a landing strip.
