Mpumalanga DestinationsRoossenekal, Highlands Meander

Fewer than 100 kilometres from the large, industrial town of Middelburg in the Mpumalanga Province, is the little village of Roossenekal. It has a total area of just over 2.5 square kilometres, and is home to about 2 700 folk. It is part of the Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality, right in the heart of some of South Africaís most beautiful landscapes.

Roossenekal was proclaimed as an official town in January of 1886, giving it a long and interesting history. The unusual name comes from the combined surnames of two soldiers (Roos and Senekal) who died in their battle against Mapochís tribe.

Thanks to its prime positioning, Roossenekal is remote but still within only a few hoursí drive from the world-renowned Kruger National Park; an extensive reserve that is home to Africaís Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) as well as hundreds of other species. This is the place to be for those who want the ideal African safari getaway, and who love the outdoors and the wildlife that inhabits it. Other nearby tourist attractions include Godís Window, Bourkeís Luck Potholes, and Pilgrimís Rest.

This part of the country offers an entirely different perspective of the untouched beauty of South Africa, as well as of its history and culture.
