Click here for Kruger National Park & Lowveld Accommodation

Along the eastern reaches of Mpumalanga lies the Kruger National Park & Lowveld, a belt of land that stretches from the Swaziland border as far as the Limpopo River on the Zimbabwe border in the north.

To the south of the Kruger National Park & Lowveld area, between the Kruger Park and the Swaziland border, lies an area of Lowveld known as the Maputo-Nelspruit development corridor. This is, above all else, an agricultural area, where a large proportion of South Africa's tropical fruit and vegetables are grown. The Kruger National Park & Lowveld is dotted with hills and valleys where guests will find traces of the early San (Bushmen) people, who left their marks in ancient rock paintings and engravings in the many caves of the Kruger National Park area. Visitors can also see archaeological ruins, old wagon trails and gold diggings.

The Kruger Park is by far the most important game reserve in Southern Africa, and certainly one of the best places in the world to see the Big Five. The Kruger Park is a vast area 400 kms from north to south harbouring 147 species of mammal, over 500 bird species, as well as numerous species of reptile, fish and amphibians, to say nothing of the 336 species of trees.
In this vast and endless wilderness epitomizing the true quality of Africa, safari Kruger Park accommodation lies in the land of baobabs and marula trees, and offers a wealth of Kruger Park safari rest camps to suit all budgets, which provide an authentic wildlife experience, and exquisite panoramic views over the Kruger Park bushveld.

Apart from the obvious attractions, the Kruger National Park & Lowveld region of Mpumalanga is famous for its wide selection of adventure holidays, from rock climbing and hiking, to white water rafting and windsurfing, from bird watching to paragliding. Mpumalanga is, without doubt, a part of South Africa that cannot be missed by both locals and international visitors alike.

Take a trip through the Kruger National Park Lowveld, and experience South Africa in towns where early fortune-seekers, hunters, gold-diggers and adventurers created legends.

Mpumalanga, Kruger National Park & Lowveld - Nelspruit / Mbombela
From its humble beginnings, Mbombela / Nelspruit became the Capital of Mpumalanga, and the most important commercial centre in the Kruger National Park Lowveld area. Fondly called 'Nellies' by the locals, Nelspruit / Mbombela is also known as the gateway to Mpumalanga, and boasts an international airport with regular scheduled flights to the larger cities of South Africa. Situated about 53 minutes from the Kruger Park, Mbombela is the ideal base from which to explore this Mpumalanga wildlife sanctuary, which is inhabited by more species of mammals than any other African game reserve.
With its sunny, sub-tropical climate, Mbombela is rated as a superb holiday destination, offering visitors unique experiences such as at the 3 million year old Sudwala Caves; or a family fun day at the Nelspruit Croc River Enviro Park. Go horse riding on mountain bushveld trails, or test your skills on 4x4 trails over rocky terrain. Challenge yourself on the Nelspruit Golf Course - an 18 hole par 71 golf course with lush year-round fairways lined exclusively by indigenous trees. For the shopoholic, Nelspruit Riverside Mall is one of Mpumalanga's largest shopping centres and cinema complexes, or strike it lucky at Emnotweni Casino.

Mpumalanga, Kruger National Park Lowveld - Hazyview

Mpumalanga, Kruger National Park - Malelane

Mpumalanga, Kruger National Park - Skukuza
The capital of the Kruger Park is Skukuza, Kruger Park, Mpumalanga's largest rest camp and administrative headquarters, and the main hub for nature conservation. Skukuza is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River, and boosts some of the finest safari game watching. In the interesting village of Skukuza itself, guests will find museums, restaurants, shops, an airport, post office, bank, and even a doctor's office.  When you drive through the imposing gates into Skukuza you find yourself in an environment abuzz with scientists, rangers, conservationists. A wealth of knowledge can be gained in the Skukuza information centre, while adults and children can attend lectures in the nearby environmental education centre. A museum has been constructed at the old 1920's Selati line railway siding, where you can have a meal in a restaurant housed in two old railway carriages from the same period.

My Trip Through The Kruger Park
After leaving Dullstroom on our way to Skukuza, we decided to do a detour via Hans Merensky Golf Estate in Phalaborwa.
Palaborwa in itself was a pretty tidy little mining town with fond memories of our visit to a little Portuguese restaurant no more than 2 kms outside the Hans Merensky main gate. We were entertained by Armand Hofmeyer (Steve Hofmeyer's son).......we got REALLY vrot with "sokkie" music blaring and the locals "lang-arming" around the dance floor. Much, much fun.

Hans Merensky Golf Estate and hotel was an eye-opener. The decor in the hotel was mind-boggling and the rooms were top class.
The famous Hans Merensky Golf Course stood up to it's name, as we hacked through the magnificent golf course with close sightings of giraffe, hippo, warthog, impala and crocodile - an experience not to miss.
We checked out and headed out of Limpopo Province down to Skukuza (Mpumalanga Province)

The trip was a little too far for a single day trip which took about 6 hours to reach Skukuza.
Along the way we sighted stacks of elephant, rhino, giraffe, and tons of bokke.
Skukuza Game Reserve (inside the Kruger National Park) presented us with basic, but clean accommodation as well as a restaurant where dinner was more than satisfying.

The Skukuza Golf Course was in OK nick and also had its fair share of wildlife roaming around. The Skukuza Golf Course is situated inside the Kruger National Park, and there are no fences separating golfers from wild animals............very interesting!!

We then headed off to Sabi River Bungalows.
