Mpumalanga DestinationsMorgenzon, Cosmos Country

Lying almost halfway between Standerton and Ermelo, Morgenzon, as its Dutch name meaning morning light suggests, lies in a part of Mpumalanga that allows you to experience the morning sun with little of the interference of city living or human development. It is a little agricultural town with few residents, but a golf course, that services the surrounding farms and visitors that enter the town via either the R39 or the R35.

The town lies on the banks of the Osspruit River, or Ox Stream, and aside from the historically relevant Marnico Hotel around which the town was originally built, a rather important agricultural school, and a municipal graveyard (very interesting to explore), has little to offer other than serving as an ideal stopover between Standerton and Ermelo, as it did in the days of old when wagons used to pull up outside the hotel for the night.

Locals, however, call the town 'Sivukile' or 'we stand up', which may or may not have something to do with the historical voyage of Mzilikazi and his band of men who left Zululand originally in 1825 and settled for a while at a village not farm from where Morgenzon lies today, called Bloukop (blue top).

Neighbouring farms not only offer accommodation options where one can slow the passage of time and do little other than wake with the light and sleep when the sun sets, they also offer game viewing, water sports and fishing on local dams. There is the nine-hole golf course on the banks of the Osspruit, and the historic sandstone Marnico Hotel that is worth a visit in its own right.
