Built on the crocodile-infested Komati River, Komatipoort marks the border between South Africa and Mozambique. Maputo is less than 100km from here and Swaziland under an hour’s drive away. The Crocodile Bridge entrance to the Kruger National Park is 8km to the north.

The Komati River rises in the Highveld near Ermelo before slicing through the northern part of Swaziland. It joins the Crocodile River at Komatipoort and then flows through the Lebombo Mountains and out into the sea at Maputo in Mozambique.

Komatiepoort appears as a quaint, border post town, but the ideal location of this small town makes day trips for budget travellers as easy as anything with easy access to local wildlife, golf, tiger fishing in the Komati River and elephant back safaris.
