Filled with natural wonders
Mpumalanga is a crammed with god-made miracles.
The sheer volume of natural wonders in such a small area alone makes Mpumalanga worth visiting because you enjoy huge rewards for almost no effort. It’s unbelievably beautiful and almost overwhelming in its sheer natural generosity and magnitude.
As you can guess, we love it...
This rich and varied province includes the Kruger Park, the mountains of the Klein Drakensberg escarpment and the scenic Blyde River Canyon.
Jaw-dropping features include the Three Rondavels, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the spectacular view from God’s Window, the Sudwala Caves and the historic and quaint mining town of Pilgrim’s Rest.
An abundant pantry
Mpumalanga stretches east from the coal mining areas of Witbank, over the escarpment of the Drakensberg to the rich sub-tropical fruit farming regions of Nelspruit, White River and Hazyview and on to the bushveld plains and the Kruger National Park.
The sub-tropical fruit farming areas produce abundant crops of mangos, paw-paws, avocado pears, litchis, bananas, tomatoes and passion fruit which are sold for next to nothing along the roadside, but which can also be found gracing tables throughout Europe and the British Isles – at a somewhat higher price of course!
This abundant pantry has also spawned a successful juice extraction industry while the high lying mountainous area is home to a vast timber and paper industry.
Hire a car and explore
Think about hiring a car for a day or two. Then pack a picnic and a bottle of bubbly and go intrepid adventuring...
