Incorporating vast tracts of the Kruger National Park, numerous private game reserves, the spectacular Blyde River Canyon and the quaint trout-fishing haven of Dullstroom, Mpumalanga is filled with breathtaking scenery.
Made up of eight different private game reserves and sharing unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park is the highly acclaimed Sabi Sands Game Reserve. The area is rich in wildlife, notably the elusive leopard, and the waters of the Sabi and the Sand Rivers which flow through the reserve are greatly sustaining to both the wildlife and the vegetation. A great diversity of first-class accommodation is on offer at the various camps within the reserve from colonial style lodges with the charm of yesteryear to African inspired rondawels and sleek contemporary tree lodges. Generally your safari experience will include accommodation, all meals, and two game drives each day.
For something completely different, the quaint town of Dullstroom is known for its crystal clear mountain air, beautiful scenery and excellent fishing. Here visitors can sit back and relax while taking in the peace and quiet or venture outdoors for hiking, horse riding and fly fishing.
Towns such as White River, Pilgrim's Rest and Graskop are all found in the incredibly scenic Panorama region which is home to the spectacular Blyde River Canyon - the third largest canyon in the world. Magnificent scenery as well as adrenalin pumping activities such a white water rafting and bungee jumping can be enjoyed.
