Mpumalanga is a province of South Africa. The name means “east”, or literally “the place where the sun rises” in the Nguni languages such as Swazi, Xhosa, Ndebele and Zulu languages. Mpumalanga is one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations.

People are drawn to Mpumalanga by the magnificent scenery, by the fauna and flora and by the saga of the 1870s gold rush era and a wealth of fascinating tribal legends. Aptly known as “Paradise Country”, few regions in the world can match the extraordinary beauty of the Mpumalanga Lowveld and escarpment. Mountains, panoramic passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls, and forests characterize the landscape. This is also Big Game Country, the setting for dozens of sanctuaries teeming with wildlife and birds. Among them, the Kruger National Park is world-renowned, as are several of the luxurious private reserves on its western boundary.
