However, the region has so much more to offer. If time allows, we recommend a visit to the scenic Panorama Route along the escarpment, with its dramatic scenery and beautiful waterfalls.
You can also visit an African tribal village, where you can experience the music, dance and culture of the African people. Numerous adventure activities are on offer in Mpumalanga, as well as elephant-back safaris, hot air balloon flights, hiking trails and short nature walks, the Sudwala caves, reptile parks, a dinosaur theme park, casinos, shopping and fine dining.
