Rosetta was an integral part of the Colonial farm pioneering boom of the mid to late 1800’s. Its future looked more secure in 1895 when Natal authorities built the Meshlyn Bridge and finally secured a place on the map a year later with construction of its still standing hotel.

Rosetta is close to the Highmoor, Kamberg, Loteni and Giants Castle Nature reserves all offer hiking and fishing opportunities. This area is renowned for Trout fishing with many dams and the rivers, big and little Mooi and the Bushmans are legendary.
