MpumalangaMpumalanga

Mpumalanga, meaning ‘the place where the sun rises’ lies in eastern South Africa. Adventurers are drawn to this region by magnificent scenery and unparalleled fauna and flora.

Mpumalanga is divided into two distinct areas. The westerly half, the highveld, is high altitude grasslands with its distinct afternoon thunderstorms. The highveld terminates in an immense escarpment that plunges hundreds of meters down to a low-lying area called the lowveld. Here you find some of the most famous game reserves in the world. This natural border, the Drakensberg Escarpment, creates spectacular scenery and provides plenty of opportunities for adventure seekers.

The area around the escarpment is also known as the Panorama Route. This route has breathtaking vistas around every mountain corner and waterfalls plunging down sheer rock faces. Start the route in the tiny town of Graskop where your first adventure activity is a gorge swing. Further south, the Sabie River offers excellent river rafting opportunities. Caving in Sabie is also popular and the many waterfalls in the region are just waiting to be explored on a kloofing adventure.

The spectacular Blyde River Canyon with the Blyderivierpoort Dam below forms the northern part of the escarpment. This 25 kilometer long canyon, the second largest in Africa and third deepest in the world is the perfect place to go kloofing, quad biking or to enjoy a boat trip. Viewpoints with fitting names such as the Three Rondavels and God’s Window are spectacular stops on this adventure route.

The lowveld is Big Game Country. This is the setting for sanctuaries teeming with wildlife. The Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa, became South Africa’s first national park in 1926 and is today part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park that links this park with Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. Choose between the many camps and lodges and go on safari in an open vehicle for a world class game experience. Alternatively try a walking safari which gives the added benefit of an unparalleled adrenaline rush when you are up close and personal with some of Africa’s largest mammals.
