208 Things To Do in Mpumalanga

The beauty of Mpumalanga, the place where the sun rises, is not easily surpassed, and the access visitors have to incredible scenery, mountain landscape, sweeping rivers, waterfalls, misty valleys and the lowveld’s myriad game parks make the north-eastern province a popular choice. Blyde River Canyon, the world's third largest canyon, is just one of the highlights, which also include Sudwala Caves, Bourkes Luck Potholes, the southern Kruger Park, the Berlin Falls, God's Window and the Three Rondawels. Add to this list the quaint villages of Pilgrim's Rest and Barberton, Sabie and the Songimvelo Game Reserve, and its allure is easily understood.
