Bulwer South Africa

Bulwer South Africa is a tiny but warmly welcoming village, nestled at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg just an hour’s drive from Pietermaritzburg Oribi International airport, surrounded by a declared conservancy of grasslands and indigenous forests, watched over by the beautiful Amahaqwa mountain. The Village was named after Sir Henry Bulwer, lieutenant governor of Natal 1875-1880. These days Bulwer is treasured as an unspoilt and quaint country village with old style buildings.

Historic Buildings

On your way to the Marutswa Forest you will pass the Yellowwood church, one of Bulwer’s most charming and tiny treasures, handcrafted from local trees for the princely sum of £25 in 1886. Services still take place on the first Sunday of each month, and the Carols by Candlelight service is an annual experience not to miss.
