Mpumalanga incorporates both the dry, treeless savannah of the highveld and the humid, tropical fruit farms and rich green grasslands of the lowveld with the dramatic Klein Drakensberg escarpment separating the two.

Why visit Mpumalanga ?

This is a world of forests, gorges, rivers, plunge pools and waterfalls, an area that you can drive or walk around and marvel at the phenomenal views and topographical masterpieces that make up this beautiful region of South Africa.

Economically important with its wealth of mineral resources, and historically so, on account of its proud links to the 19th Century Voortrekkers and the gold rush, there are a huge number of wonderful places to visit including Blyde River Canyon, Long TomPass, God’s Window, Pilgrim’s Rest and Bourke’s Luck potholes. This is also the perfect area from which to step into the Kruger National Park or one of the neighbouring game reserves.
