Home to the magnificent Blyde River Canyon and the Panorama Route, Mpumalanga (which means 'place of the rising sun' in SiSwati) is a province of massive landscapes and sheer beauty. Mpumalanga is a land of contrasts as the high northern peaks of the Drakensberg plunge steeply into sweeping lowveld plains 1000 metres below. Mpumalanga's lowveld is home to a number of game reserves including the southern section of the Kruger National Park, offering visitors the chance to experience amazing game viewing.


Mpumalanga is a malaria area and suitable prophylactics are advised.
