Get to Know Mpumalanga
Mpumalanga’s booming tourist industry is centred upon the world-famous Kruger National Park and the exclusive private reserves that share open borders with it
Bisected by the tall escarpment that separates the cool highveld from the sweltering Lowveld, Mpumalanga – a siSwati word meaning “Place of the Rising Sun” – lies to the east of Gauteng and south of Limpopo Province. Its main tourist focus is the well-developed southern sector of the southern Kruger National Park. One of Africa’s most rewarding wildlife destinations, Kruger is home to some of the largest remaining populations of such safari icons as lion, African elephant, black rhino, white rhino, cheetah and African hunting dog, along with more than 500 bird species.
