Dominated by the breathtakingly beautiful Blyde River Canyon, the Sudwala Caves and the Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga definitely offers something for everyone!
The word Mpumalanga derives from the word “the place where the sun rises,” and while it may be one of South Africa’s smallest provinces, what it lacks in size it definitely makes up for it in spectacular natural diversity.
Not only is the province home to the world’s most famous game park, the world’s largest green canyon and the oldest cave system, the region is dotted with reserves teeming with indigenous flora and fauna.
People are drawn to Mpumalanga by the magnificent scenery, indigenous flora and fauna and by the saga of the 1870s gold rush era. Mountain vistas, panoramic passes, rippled rivers, waterfalls and forests characterise the landscape. Visit the world’s most popular game reserve, climb the largest green canyon in the world, explore the world’s oldest cave system and spend the evening under the African stars with the Big 5 around you.
Few regions in the world can match the extraordinary beauty of the lowveld escarpment.
