Mpumalanga

The village of Tonteldoos is situated near the town of Dullstroom in Mpumalanga. It was established in 1883 by Dutch settlers.

It gets its name from the Dutch word for "tinderbox" but the connection of the tinderbox to the town is not known for sure but the most widely believed story is that a land surveyor lost his tinderbox in the area.

The town has a few accommodation places and visitors can enjoy the peace and quiet of the country.
