When unfriendly weather interrupts a warm-blooded getaway, self drive the friendly route named after roadside featured cold-blooded reptilias; the Reptile Route. This short day trip is rainy day friendly and slithers its way through the Mpumalanga lowveld with scenery sliding by and stop-off's rolling in.
The attractions and activities en route are suitable for all ages and weather predictions. Points of interest covered for animal enthusiasts include the Perry's Bridge Reptile Park, Dinosaur Park and Chimpanzee Eden.
An underground adventure at Sudwala Caves will enthral explorers and educate young cave diggers. Back aground the view from any car window while Reptile Route driving or pulling over to take in the Reptile Route vistas, will delight landscape lovers while a visit to the Antique Car Museum does a wax and polish on automobile history.
The Tribal Village, the Swazi Cultural Village and Shangaan Cultural Village will share the local culture with travelling anthropologists or ordinary people gazers passing through. Spend winnings from a Jackpot strike at Emnotweni Casino at the Riverside Mall or Casterbridge Shopping Centre where the Rottcher Orange Winery will soothe with citrus.
Watch the water wonders of the Cascade Waterfall in the Lowveld Botanic Garden and compare architectural notes on Hazyview town, White River town and Nelspruit city. Finally a hot cup of home-grown home-brewed coffee from Riverbend Coffee Farm will keep you alert as your journey continues.
Pack a picnic and happy reptile road trip!
