Eating Out at Restaurants in Mpumalanga

The exquisite province of Mpumalanga is acclaimed for its dramatic countryside and the sheer abundance of natural wonders that can be found within its boundaries. It is no wonder that this area is affectionately known as Paradise Country, as it truly is a place of beauty that is quite magical. Unique rock formations, rolling jade-green countryside, dense forests, and dramatic passes are what this pretty part of South Africa is all about.

Did you know? Despite the millions of tourists who enter the Kruger National Park annually a huge proportion pass through Mpumalanga without exploring the richness of natural beauty beyond the park’s boundaries.

There are a number of little towns scattered throughout the loveliness of Mpumalanga, and these are home to a wonderful variety of restaurants. These range from charming little country retreats that serve the finest in traditional boere kos (South African fare), to coffee shops where cake and tea can be savoured under the trees; from pubs that stock a delicious array of beers, wines and spirits, to top-notch restaurants that promise their patrons an ample portion of elegance and class as they savour mouth-watering dishes in style.

Nelspruit is the largest city in Mpumalanga, and is its capital. Its streets and city centre boast many eateries amongst the shops and tourist attractions. But, exciting dishes and innovative approaches to dining can also be found in Sabie, Hazyview, and Dullstroom. These gastronomic getaways make exploring Mpumalanga and its surrounds all the more memorable, as families and friends get to sit around the table and share their fabulous experiences of South Africa.
