Mpumalanga, which means "land of the rising sun" in the local SiSwati language, offers you from exhilarating wildlife, to secluded mountain retreats, wild water sports and some of South Africa's most diverse and vibrant African cultures.

Mpumalanga is not a highly developed province with large cities and towns - instead, visitors to the province are brought closer to nature.

Mpumalanga Attractions

The Kruger National Park

One of the major tourist attractions of the country, the Kruger National Park is among South Africa’s finest assets. Well-equipped to offer big five safaris, the park includes a large number of accommodation options, ranging from five star lodges to affordable rest camps.

This famous park boasts over 140 species of mammals and over 500 species of birds, not to mention a wide variety of amphibians, reptiles, flora and fauna.

Gold-Digger’s Delight

The little town of Pilgrim’s Rest offers a step backwards into South Africa’s history, complete with themed-museums, restored buildings… and the notorious Victorian-inspired Royal Hotel. The area is a favourite for overseas and local visitors and is well-equipped to handle all of the attention with a good offering of restaurants, bars and reasonably priced accommodation available.

Green Belt

The green belt of Sabie offers a wonderful base to explore Mpumalanga’s Escarpment. This is the centre of South Africa’s forestry region and boasts excellent lodges, bed-and-breakfast establishments as well as a rather fine backpacker’s lodge. Although the pace in Sabie is rather laid back, there are a number of activities and day trips for the adventure seeker.
