Travelling the Panoramic Route from Johannesburg, brings you into a landscape filled with the extraordinary and amazing. Lets visit Bourke’s Luck Potholes, stop off at Pilgrims Rest, walk up to God’s Window, so called for its stunning views of the Lowveld more than 900 metres below. On a clear day, you can see as far as the Kruger National Park and, beyond that, Mozambique.
You can encounter the most bizarre and fabulous tales of the early mining town of Pilgrim’s Rest or play golf on one of the courses that have interim exceptional hazards like hippos, crocodiles and antelope.
Easily accessible from Johannesburg by road and air, Mpumalanga opens up into a magnificent grassland biome. Long sweeps of undulating grasslands change abruptly into thickly forested ravines and thundering waterfalls of the escarpment, only to change again into the subtropical wildlife splendour of the Lowveld.
The Kruger National Park with all its accompanying beauty and population of wildlife nestles into the eastern edge of this Province.
There are enormous tracts of forestry plantations which provide an ideal backdrop for ecotourism opportunities. Mpumalanga offers an exciting variety of hiking trails, waterfalls, indigenous forest and many nature reserves. Our highly qualified field and bird guides will lead you on a tour of discovery with outstanding sightings to behold.
Around the area are the beautiful and historic towns of Barbeton, Sabie, Graskop and Origstad.
The Place of the Rising Sun.
Every November in the south eastern highlands of Mpumalanga, the frog is not merely a prince (or princess) waiting to be kissed. Little green and yellow web-footed frogs have a festival in their honour.
All sorts of activities are planned around these precious little amphibians. With around 270 lakes and pans within a 20km radius of Lake Chrissie, this is a frog lovers’ paradise.
As the sun sets join in the frog chorus, hop on a tractor for a special “frog-nite tour”, and then, around the camp fire, sip your soup (no frogs included) whilst listening to story tellers and experts talk on all things amphibian.
