Heinz and Monica run a general trading store at Elandskraal, situated approximately 15km from Rorke’s Drift.
There is a filling station, general groceries and many necessities are on offer, as well as traditional and cultural crafts (they trade and sell). Examples include traditional beer pots, spears, shields, woodwork and beadwork. It is very much an old fashioned shop with all sorts from milling maize for locals’ harvest through to being the local postal agency.
The store has been in the Dedekind family for five generations; the first Dedekind coming out to South Africa and the Rorke’s Drift area as a missionary.
