Rosetta is the rose of the Natal Midlands

Rosetta rose of the natal MidlandsRosetta is situated between Nottingham Road and Mooi River and is one of those little villages that with all the charm of the Natal Midlands. Rosetta serves the surrounding smallholdings with little more than a small village mall, which includes a little shopping centre. But one doesn’t come to Rosetta to shop. Its the dramatic views of the Drakensberg and the access road to Kamberg that makes Rossetta a hub.

The surrounding landscapes of Rosetta come alive during spring with abundant wild flowers and the autumns are an array of burnt orange and amber. The Rosetta winters are cold and crisp often a frost-laden air with snow-capped peaks in the distance and sometimes snow on the ground.

Some of the most spectacular waterfalls in KwaZulu Natal grace this part of the world, and when staying in Rosetta, one is less than an hour’s drive from Giant’s Castle. The Kamberg Nature Reserve can be reached along the Kamberg Road from Rosetta, where birdlife is the main attraction, including waterside birds at close range. The walks are interesting too, but the reserve is best known for its trout fishing.

Rosetta is surrounded by modern smallholdings, the village centre today features Crispin's Corner, a small shopping centre where - in addition to locally produced handicrafts history buffs may find that significant piece in its antique shop. Rosetta is part of the Midlands Meander a major tourist attraction in the area.

Rosetta is also the home too Marakesch Cheese where you can sample  a wide range of wonderfull cheeses.
