TThe province of Mpumalanga is one of natural and historical diversity. It is also home to the Panorama Route, which is an exquisite part of the countryside showcasing some of the most beautiful vistas in the country, if not the world. The waterfalls here are particularly gorgeous, and plentiful. 

On the famous Panorama Route, you’ll be able to see more waterfalls in one outing than anywhere else in Southern Africa. The longest waterfall in the area is the Lisbon Falls.

Berlin, Lisbon and Mac-Mac; you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in Europe. The names speak to the original identity of miners who came to the area to pan for gold in the late 1800s. The Lisbon Falls is the highest in Mpumalanga and plunges 94km. Set in a bowl of hills, this is a great place to start your adventure along on the Panorama Route.

Did You Know?
YYou'll find proteas if you look carefully in this area. They're a long way from where you'd usually expect to see them in and around Cape Town, but do occur here too. The Blyde protea (Protea laetens) is endemic to this area.
