African Travel Concept

Mpumalanga

Mpumalanga province is home to the Blyde River Canyon – the world's third-deepest gorge and part of the Panorama Route; the Sudwala Caves – the world's oldest; and the southern part of Kruger National Park – arguably the world's most famous wildlife sanctuary. Mpumalanga, South Africa's second-smallest province is known as 'the place where the sun rises' and for its spectacular natural diversity.

Historical influence is evident in Mpumalanga: from the legendary ancient floating villages of Chrissiesmeer, rock art by Africa's early inhabitants, the San and Khoisan, and evidence of the gold rush of the 1870s captured in the historical town of Pilgrim's Rest.

Wildlife is on everyone's lips in Mpumalanga, with South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park – one of the world's largest wildlife reserves boasting an impressive and unsurpassed array of indigenous species – taking pride of place.

Activities include magnificent safari drives and walks, bird watching, hiking, horse riding and trout fishing, elephant-back safaris, white-water rafting trips or waterfall abseiling.
