This is one of H. Rider Haggard's books with a female protagonist. Benita is strong and brave, nevertheless, like most 19th century heroines she does depend on men to aid and rescue her when possible. If not, she'll go ahead and take matters into her own hands. It takes place in and around the Transvaal area of Africa with the obligatory native tribes and gold treasure. Benita was born in Africa but was taken to England with her mother at an early age. Just as she had grown, her mother dies and she leaves England for Africa to see her estranged father.
