Piet Retief Tours and Travels

About Piet Retief

Piet Retief started in 1883 on the farms 'Osloop' and 'Geluk' in the region called the Assegai Valley, where the Assegai River runs through. The valley is formed between the mountains of Swaziland and the Drakensberg Mountains. The Assegai River is a misnomer that was derived from the Zulu name for this river. In Zulu it is properly called the Mkonda river. This refers to an animal spoor and signifies how the river runsalong a meandering course like the spoor of an animal. White settlers, however, confused the word Mkonda for Mkondo, which means spear.
