Cosmos Country lies in the south western part of Mpumalanga against the Free State and Gauteng borders and includes the towns of Secunda, Delmas, Leandra, Bethal, Standerton, Balfour and Greylingstad.
Known as the 'energy belt' of Mpumalanga, the Mpumalanga Cosmos Country region houses a number of power stations that supply energy to most southern African countries. Lively economic and agricultural activity take place in Standerton, Leandra and Balfour. The region is the centre of crude oil production in Southern Africa and it boasts the world's largest underground coal mining complex. Despite the serious industrial activity, the Cosmos country has its own natural beauty. The open grasslands of this region transform into a kaleidoscope of colour with a carpet of cosmos flowers blooming in late summer, hence the name Cosmos Country. Visitors are also attracted to the region for the search for fortunes at a casino located in the area.
