The province of Mpumalanga, which straddles the Drakensberg Mountain Range, combines the best of both the Lowveld and the Highveld, with humid grasslands below and cool, quiet forests blanketing the peaks above. Most famous for the Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga is an incredible destination for those who love wildlife and the outdoors. Game drives and bush safaris are prime ways to get the most out of the local fauna and flora, and the Kruger (home to the Big Five) offers unrivalled outdoor excursions.
This South African province also offers a wealth of natural attractions. God’s Window, Blyde River Canyon, and Bourke’s Luck Potholes are magnificent to see and impossible to forget for their unrivalled beauty and scale. This is a hub of historical delights too. Pilgrim’s Rest is a museum town that tells the story of the rich mining heritage of this part of the country. There are also many monuments and museums throughout the province.
The capital is the well-equipped city of Nelspruit, which has a gorgeous setting and sub-tropical climate; making it the ideal place from which to experience the rest of the region. Nelspruit is home to the Lowveld Botanical Gardens and the Sudwala Caves, which is a cultural park and cultural centre for the whole family. Mpumalanga is really about celebrating the natural loveliness of South Africa…
