Snapshots of Mpumalanga

Mpumalanga is one of the most interesting parts of South Africa to visit. There’s plenty to see and do. Here are just a few suggestions ...

Sunset in the Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is a must. We were lucky enough to come across a huge pack of wild dogs on an early-morning hunt (below). We were also very lucky to get to see two hippos mating. Bring your camera and binoculars.

Do make some time to explore the Sudwala Caves. The history of the caves is fascinating, and there's lots to do in the immediate vicinity. It's an easy tour, no hectic climbing or squeezing through very narrow tunnels. Wear comfortable shoes, though.

You can see this replica dinosaur skull in the gardens of the caves.

Want to go camping but not compromise on luxury? How about glamping (luxury camping) at the Ngala Tented Camp in the Kruger National Park, which offers luxury tents with all the frills, like aircon and Wi-Fi in the rooms. Bring your designer bikini for the pool.

The wild horses of Kaapsehoop are legendary. If you are lucky you will get to see them galloping through the town. If you are a horse lover, you can book a horseback safari with Kaapsehoop Horse Trails.

Room with a view at the Rissington Inn in Hazyview. Lie next to the pool or wander through the gardens. Do order sundowners on the veranda overlooking the distant hills.
