Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Middelburg, in Mpumalanga

The scenic province of Mpumalanga is one of South Africa’s gems, known for its balmy climate and its abundance of plant and animal species. This natural splendour can be enjoyed in many ways.

There is also a section that is suitable for 4 x 2 or soft-roader vehicles. The Buffalo Gorge 4x4 Trail is suitable for tackling all year round, but the rainier seasons do add to the challenge.
