The fairytale village of Kaapsche Hoop lies in the hills directly above Nelspruit, roughly 30 kilometres outside of town. Easy to reach from Nelspruit, it is often shrouded in mist and home to a great many wild horses

The Lowveld Legogote Region is situated in the lower reaches of the Mpumalanga escarpment and comprises of the towns of Nelspruit (Mpumalanga's capital) White River, Kaapsehoop and Kanyamazane.

With an array of attractions to explore the Lowveld Legogote is well known for the Sudwala Caves (one of the oldest caves in the world), the quaint village of Kaapsehoop and its wild horses, the mesmerising butterfly garden in the White River area and the Lowveld Botanical Gardens that offers several hiking trails, the largest collection of cycads and an African rainforest.

The Lowveld Botanical Garden lies amidst sprawling strip malls and the Tsogo Sun Casinos in the heart of the ‘new’ part of town that is given over principally to automobile show rooms. It’s rather an obscure place for a slice of nature, and for this reason so necessary, and only fifteen minutes’ drive from where we stayed in the suburb of West Acres.
