Mpumalanga

Amersfoort is a tiny town situated between Ermelo and Volksrust. It is named after the Dutch city of the same name which was the home town of the Dutch farmers that first farmed in the area.

There is a magnificent Dutch Reformed Church which was built in 1876.

In the area is a bidge over the Vaal River which was built in 1896 and has been proclaimed a national monument.

A number of the farms in the area offer accommodation.
