Mpumalanga is one of the most beautiful provinces in Africa.
Mpumalanga is characterised by rivers, mountains, valleys, panoramic passes and waterfalls, and has charming towns each with their own special attractions.
The southern half of the famous Kruger National Park is found in this province, as well as the Blyde Canyon, which is the third largest canyon of its kind in the world.
Each of South Africa’s provinces offer an amazing variety of natural and man-made attractions for their visitors, and Mpumalanga is no exception. It is most famous for having the best section of the Kruger National Park within its boundaries and for its truly magnificent scenery. For example, when travelling the Panorama Route, you will be able to stop and ‘look out of’ God’s Window, on the Drakensberg escarpment.
Not exactly a window in the true sense of the word, but a breathtakingly spectacular view over the lowveld and the natural reserves of the area more than 900 metres below, with hills and forests fading away to far in the distance. You can drive part of the way up to the several available view points and some facilities are available at the car park. To explore this picture perfect area more thoroughly, there are fantastic hiking and walking trails, mountain bike trails and even horse-riding trails. After you’ve been up in these mountain forests and seen the view you may well pinpoint it as the most beautiful place in Africa!
