Let us help you start a Journey of Exploration in South Africa

Mpumalanga Province

Mpumalanga shares its borders with Swaziland and Mozambique. The larger, more populated southern part of the Kruger National Park is in Mpumalanga. The recreated mining town of Pilgrim's rest offers some insights into the gold rush that took place over a hundred years ago. The landscapes are breathtakingly beautiful in this province with many waterfalls, and range from rugged grasslands of the escarpment to the tropical humidity and plant life of the lowveld.

Blyde River Canyon

Officially the Motlatse Canyon is a significant natural feature of South Africa, located in Mpumalanga, and forming the northern part of the Drakensberg escarpment. Located in the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, it is 25 kilometres in length and is, on average, around 750 metres deep.

The canyon consist of water tumbling through a deep and spectacular gorge, and runs through the Blyde River Nature Reserve. This dramatic canyon with its towering red and gold sandstone cliffs can be viewed from a number of sites. The Three Rondawels, also known as the Chief's Wives, dominate the northern section of the canyon.

Pilgrims Rest

A small museum town in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa which is protected as a provincial heritage site. It was the second of the Transvaal gold fields, attracting a rush of prospectors in 1873, soon after the MacMac diggings started some 5 kilometres away.

This village has been declared a national monument. It was a lively mining settlement which appeared almost overnight after the discovery of gold in the surrounding hills. In those days, it accommodated about 1 600 diggers. The wood-and iron miners' cottages have been restored and the Digging-site Museum, about two kilometers out of town include prospectors' tents, a jail tent (complete with stocks), and wattle-and-daub huts.

God's Window

This site offers spectacular views across the lowveld. On a clear day, you'll be able to see across the famous Kruger National Park towards the Lebombo Mountains in the distance.

The God's Window and Wonder view sites, with wooden platforms that offer the most stunning vistas over the Escarpment, leaves you feeling as if you are standing on top of the world. The land drops almost vertically to the Lowveld, at an altitude of around two kilometers.

Sudwala Caves

The Sudwala Caves in Mpumalanga, South Africa, are set in Precambrian dolomite rock, which was first laid down about 2800 million years ago, when Africa was still part of Gondwana. The caves themselves formed about 240 million years ago.

The Sudwala Caves are between Waterval-Onder and Nelspruit. When you pass through their main entrance, in the forest that flanks the Mankelekele ('High-on-Hogh') mountain, you'll find yourself in an amazing labyrinth that takes you down into the bowels of the earth. These caverns were formed over a period of more than a million years, during which water seeped slowly through the rock and dissolved the dolomite. The wonderful drip stone formations have names such as the Screaming Monster, the Weeping Madonna, Nick the Devil, Samson's Pillar and the Rocket Silo. . The Dinosaur Park, with its extraordinary sculptures and models of some of the fearsome creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of the gems in the Southern African tourism crown, hosting thousands of visitors daily. This is big-game country at its best and stretches for 350 kilometers from the Crocodile River in the south, along the Mozambique border to the Limpopo and Levuvhu rivers in the north. This is the flagship of all national parks within South Africa.

The Kruger National Park, in north-eastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.

Bourkes Luck Pot Holes

This is a moonscape of deep hollows and channels, formed by the confluence of the Treur and Blyde Rivers. These Potholes have been formed over centuries of continuous scouring by sand and pebbles carried along by the river, and some of them are almost 600 meters deep.

This natural water feature marks the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon. Through countless eons the swirling whirlpools which occur as the Treur River plunges into the Blyde River caused waterborne sand and rock to grind huge, cylindrical potholes into the bedrock of the river.
